chance of a developing primary enuresis as well. At 5 years of age, children wet the bed at least once a month both males and females wetting nightly.
- Secondary enuresis — wetting developed after being continually dry for a minimum of six months. Urinary tract infections, metabolic disorders (for example, various types of diabetes), external pressure on the bladder (for example, extreme constipation by a large
rectal stool mass), as well as neurological disorders of the spinal cord must be considered among the causes of secondary bedwetting.
