Bedwetting, better known as bed wetting, affects more than 300,000 children aged 6 to 14 every year. In order to dramatize the subject, the site pipi-au-lit.net launches the first web TV dedicated to enuresis, intended for children and parents.
Enuresis, it's about quoi
- We talk about bedwetting when a child over 5 years old or an adult is a victim during his sleep repeatedly of urination, urination, uncontrolled and unconscious.
- We speak of "primary" enuresis if the child has always wet his bed, without ever having acquired any period of night cleanliness. This is the most common form. It can be due to a delay of maturity of the natural reflex of urination (it disappears when this delay is caught up), a bladder smaller than the average, to a too deep sleep, genetic factors (in 30 to 60% of the cases, there are other cases in the ascending family) ... Very rarely, nocturnal enuresis may be a symptom of a malformation of the urinary tract.
- Enuresis is called "secondary", when the child has been clean during a period at least 6 months. It usually starts between 5 and 7 years old. In this case, the cause is often a psycho-emotional disorder, in connection with an event: birth of a little brother or a little sister, problem at school, illness in the family, death of a close ...
Enuresis, a phenomenon not so rare as that
- 1 in 10 children between 5 and 10 years old suffer from enuresis. It affects 6% of children aged 6 to 10 years and affects 3% of children aged 11 to 14 years. 46% of the enuresies are severe which means that the child wets his bed between 3 and 7 nights a week.
- This condition has important consequences for the daily life of enuretic children who may be afraid to be scolded by their parents, develop a sense of shame, not daring to discuss with their friends ... 63% of children admit they have never spoken to their friends.
- Parents, on the other hand, feel helpless, do not always know how to deal with this disorder and often feel responsible. 44% of parents admit to developing a feeling of guilt.
