Did you know bedwetting is caused by a sleep disorder?
Bedwetters remain in stage four sleep for considerably longer periods of time
This produces the disconnect between the brain and bladder, and night wetting occurs.
Lack of proper sleep cycling results in insufficient REM or non-REM sleep.
Bedwetters experience non-rested sleep that results in other symptoms which can include:
- Sleep deprivation
- Mental fatigue
- Difficulty concentrating
- ADD/ADHD like behaviors
Constant wetting a night can lead to daytime symptoms which can include:
- Involuntary release of urine
- Frequency of urination
Dr. Lyle Danuloff is always concerned when he hears that a parent of a child or teenager is told they will outgrow enuresis. The idea that the bedwetter will “outgrow” this condition comes with No guarantee, and, in fact, leads to difficulties later in life. If someone were to finally outgrow bedwetting, they don’t outgrow the sleep disorder itself, for which there is no longer a remedy. This permanent compromise to proper, healthy sleep leads to other symptoms and challenges related to the sleep disorder.
A bedwetters greatest fear is being “discovered”, which often causes them to withdraw or to harbor a secret to avoid being teased or humiliated. Ultimately, the longer the bed-wetting goes untreated, the greater the potential for psychological or emotional trauma.
