Enuresis in adults
For many adults it is hard to talk about bed wetting issues at night or if they are using bedwetting pads. But rather than having embarrassment they must know that nocturnal enuresis is involuntary and it is not their fault. There are several factors that can contribute to an adult bedwetting causing nocturnal enuresis. These factors can be medical issues or hereditary. Study shows that someone with two parents has 77% chance of becoming a bed wetter. When one parent wets the bed there is 40% chance of becoming a bed wetter. Another factor is ADH the antidiuretic hormone its main function is to signal the kidney to decrease the amount of urine produced.
People with small bladder are often dealing with primary nocturnal enuresis. As for secondary nocturnal enuresis, the problem can be urinary tract infection, diabetes, urinarary tract stone or obstructive sleep apnea.
Adult enuresis treatment
There are many enuresis treatment options available that can help stop or treat adult bed wetting. Bedside enuresis alarms are suitable for teens and adults. At night bedside enuresis alarms can awaken an adult bed wetter when he or she begins to start urination. This device includes a moisture sensitive bed side mat sensor that is connected to an enuresis alarm kept on the near side table that sounds when urine is first detected. You can quickly turn the alarm off when an adult begins to wet the bed and go to the toilet. It teaches the adult bed wetter the connection between the brain and the bladder sensation at night and trains the adult bed wetter to respond to the alarm and within some time gets up faster and faster beating the alarm. Bedside enuresis alarm helps even the caretaker to know when they need to change the sheet or respond to an alarm for adults who wet the bed.
