When can you say that a child has enuresis? This is just one of the many questions that Dr. Rocío Santiago Gómez, a specialist in Pediatrics and a Doctor of Medicine from the Complutense University of Madrid, answers in ten videos on the subject of enuresis.
With this first video, parents will be able to become familiar with the subject of enuresis, know what it is, the types of enuresis, what the normal urination process of a child is like, and from what age and under what circumstances it can be considered children have enuresis. When the bladder fills, it sends nervous messages to the child's brain, giving him the feeling of wanting to pee. The child makes abdominal pressure, the sphincter opens and a urination is triggered.
Normally, to control this entire process, the child needs not only brain maturation but also voluntary control learning. Children usually check the house first, then pee during the day, and last pee at night.
A child has enuresis when he pees in bed, usually during sleep, nap or at night, involuntarily, and at an age that theoretically should have controlled it. Up to five years it is considered normal for a child to pee on the bed. In the age group between 6 and 10 years, pee leaks are relatively frequent at night, but that does not mean that the child has enuresis.
A child only has enuresis when he leaks his pee during sleep, during the night or nap, involuntarily and intermittently, at the age of 5 in girls and 6 in boys, since they mature later .
Enuresis affects around 10 percent of children between 4 and 15 years of age, and of them, three-quarters of those who suffer from it wet the bed more than twice a week.
