MEDICLINIC CITY HOSPITAL

Enuresis Clinic (Bed Wetting)

Nocturnal enuresis is defined as involuntary night time urination. It is remarkably common. 50 million children worldwide suffer from the nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting) and about two out of every 100 adults wet the bed at night. It is estimated that 15- 20% of children aged five and  5% of children age 10 are affected.

When should you consult your doctor?

When the child reaches five years old and is still bedwetting
When the child is six months dry and then bedwetting recurs
When the symptoms occur during the day/night or both for a child or adult

At the Mediclinic City Hospital’s Enuresis Clinic, Dr. Elhowairis uses a comprehensive, medically based approach that can deal with daytime and nighttime wetting in children, teens and adults. A careful history, physical exam, and urine test can usually determine the type of bed-wetting and the best treatment approaches.
