It’s not unusual for kids to wet the bed at night. Known formally as pediatric enuresis, uncontrolled nighttime urination affects as many as 5% to 10% of 7-year-olds in the United States. That’s about 7 million children, so if this is happening in your family, you’re not alone!

In this 20-minute podcast, Dr. Patricio Gargollo, a pediatric urologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, covers:

  • what enuresis is and what causes it,
  • what your child’s doctor might do to evaluate them,
  • how it’s treated, and
  • how to help your child through it.
