Bed wetting has been studied and determined to have a negative impact on the self-esteem of children and teenagers. A recent study published in the Journal of Urology last month examined the health related quality of life of children with bed wetting and that of their mothers.
The study reached the same conclusion as The Enuresis Treatment Center. The quality of life can be improved after the successful treatment of nocturnal enuresis. With over thirty years of research and successfully treating thousands of children, teenagers and adults, this Bed Wetting Clinic continues to offer comprehensive treatment for the real cause of bed wetting; an abnormally deep sleep that does not allow the brain to interpret the full signal from the bladder and properly respond.

Health Related Quality of Life for Monosymptomatic Enuretic Children and Their Mothers
There have been few reports addressing how nocturnal enuresis affects the health related quality of life of patients and their mothers. Thus, we evaluated the health related quality of life of enuretic children and their mothers.
Materials and Methods
The health related quality of life of 139 patients with nocturnal enuresis and that of their mothers were evaluated before and after treatment. The children’s health related quality of life was evaluated with the Kid-KINDL® protocol. The mothers’ health related quality of life was evaluated using the SF-36®, the SDS (Self-Rating Depression Scale) for rating depression and the STAI (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory) for assessing anxiety.
In the health related quality of life of enuretic children, the family domain score was significantly lower than that of controls (p = 0.02). In the health related quality of life of the mothers as shown by SF-36, the vitality domain score was significantly lower compared to controls (p = 0.01). The evaluation of the STAI score demonstrated a higher state anxiety score (p = 0.003), which represents current suffering from anxiety, and a similar trait anxiety score (p = 0.22), which represents a similar level of underlying tendency to anxiety. There was no significant difference between the mothers of enuretic children and the controls in the SDS evaluation. After treatment for enuresis the health related quality of life score was improved not only for the enuretic children as assessed by the Kid-KINDL protocol, but also for the mothers of enuretic children as assessed by the SF-36 and STAI.
