Things You Will Need

Some need for information about bed wetting causes and the most effective bed wetting treatment.

Step 1

The first step to do when looking into how to cure nocturnal enuresis is to look at the possible causes. Things such as trauma, either physical or mental, are quite common causes in sufferers over age six (which is the common age bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis, should end according to most medical professionals). If the individual has not recently suffered trauma, the cause could also be a sleep disorder of some sort that is preventing them from waking up during the night when their bladder tells their brain it is time. By answering these questions, you will be on your way to finding a cure in no time.

Step 2

Step two is for those who have nocturnal enuresis that suspect that recent trauma could be the reason behind their bedwetting. It is very common for physical trauma, such as that from a car accident or even abuse in some cases, or mental trauma from bullies at school or problems with a job to affect the individual in such a way that their lose control over their bladder while sleeping. Luckily, a cure for bedwetting caused be these factors is typically easily found and completed. In most cases, the individual will be treated with a therapist, who will help them work through their stress and uncertainty, which in the end will help them to sleep better a night, and also allow their brain to recognize signals to wake up and urinate.

Step 3

This step is for sufferers of nocturnal enuresis that may have a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, and are in need of help to find a cure. Often the reason the person with a sleep disorder develops nocturnal enuresis is because they are sleeping so deeply, that they are unable to wake up when it is time to urinate in the middle of the night – their brain simply cannot receive those signals. The best way to work to cure this problem is to seek help from a doctor, who will be able to determine what type of treatment is best for each specific situation. Treatments such as a program to alter sleep patterns, exercises to strengthen bladder control muscles, and even simple medication are all popular and reliable ways to end bedwetting.

Step 4

Nocturnal enuresis is never an easy thing to deal with no matter what age the sufferer is. Many individuals with this can often become frustrated and full of feelings of loss of control, so for success it is very important for those in treatment to have support of their friends and family. The cure for this issue will only work and stay if the person suffering from bedwetting knows that this is not their fault, and that if they can maintain a stress and trauma free life, their nocturnal enuresis will not return.
