Adult Bedwetting – Why Continue to Suffer?

An article was written in the website called MailOnline regarding Adult Bedwetting.

We reviewed the article “The Adults Who Never Grow Out of Bedwetting” and appreciated the serious attempt to throw light on a condition suffered by millions of children and adults throughout the world as personified in the poignant portrait of Mr. Larry Philips. However, the article also contained misunderstandings about the disorder that have been promulgated by generations of physicians and psychologists.

According to Dr. Lyle Danuloff, Ph.D. and staff consultant for The Enuresis Treatment Center:

“Bedwetting is not the result of an immature pituitary, a spastic bladder, or psychological distress. Bedwetters suffer from a deep sleep disorder that creates the brain’s failure to arouse itself sufficiently to keep the bladder sphincter muscle closed when the bladder is full and signals the brain to empty.

We have successfully treated thousands of enuretics of all ages all over the world including the UK. Our time tested methods approach treatment through, first investigating all symptoms produced by the deep sleep disorder. Our treatment protocol, based upon substantial clinical research and experience, addresses the underlying deep sleep disorder with a non-invasive biofeedback method.”

Families from around the world, as well as locally in Michigan, work with the same bedwetting specialist throughout the course of treatment. They are instructed how to record information that is analyzed during schedule appointments and taught how to administer necessary protocol. Appointments are conducted either in the clinic or via telephone or Skype. Our highly trained treatment advisors come from the nursing and educational professions.

Our methods are safe and effective, so much so that we offer a money-back guarantee to our patients

At The Enuresis Treatment Center, USA, we have been successfully treating bedwetting in children, teenagers and adults for over three decades. After years of treating the disorder we unequivocally know that bedwetting is singularly and only the result of a deep sleep disorder only incidentally mentioned in your article.

Consultations can be arranged in the clinic or via a Skype. Please visit our website at

School Trips and Bed Wetting.

Chronic bedwetting takes a toll on the individual and the entire family.

The following blog post is from a mom seeking advice about her son’s bedwetting in regards to school trips.

Chronic bedwetting is a serious issue and we have many parents who contact us with the same concern. The fear of discovery can be enormous. A pending school trip or summer camp opens up the possiblity of ridicule and bullying.
An individualized treatment plan designed to end the bedwetting needs to be the focus. Our clinic’s deepest concern is the quality of sleep. Chronic bedwetting, a 10 year old wetting the bed IS chronic, is the result of an enuresis sleeping disorder. Bedwetting occurs in the deepest sleep when the brain is not arousable, an unable to receive full bladder signals.
Why turn to non-professionals for advice regarding something so serious? We have 39 years of experience treating bedwetting and our program medication-free and individualized.

“I’d be grateful for some advice. Ds is 10, in year 5 and still wetting the bed every night without fail. In year 6 they do a PGL trip and go away for a week. It’s in the July but give you from the previous September to pay for it. ds has taken it for granted that he is going. I really don’t want him to go if he’s still bed wetting because he’d be crucified if he had an accident. We are working with an enuresis clinic and follow all the advice, sleep hygiene etc but it shows no sign of abating. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to let him down. He’s a good boy. He strips his bed,opens the window, brings the laundry downstairs. As a former bedwetter myself I know how it feels and how frustrating it is to go to bed dry and wake up wet. I also know how cruel kids can be. Has anyone gone through similar?”

Adult Bedwetter Calls for Help!

A 27 year old named Stan from Texas called our clinic this morning. He has always wet the bed since. He told me he has looked at our website many times over the past two years trying to decide if he could trust what he read, and if we could really end his bedwetting problem.

He said this morning his wife decided for him. She picked up his cell phone, dialed our number, and then handed him the phone. He relayed to me what we typically hear from adults: “My parents tried everything”. He said he finally gave up and buried his embarrassment and pain; accepting his fate.

He told me that by some miracle he found a woman who loved him no matter what, and wanted to help him overcome the bedwetting episodes. She was more concerned for his sleep issue, because she has never known him to get good sleep, and that apnea seemed to be developing as of late.

Then Stan asked a very straightforward question: “What is the right age to begin to challenge the doctors who promised me that I would outgrow bedwetting?”

18% of our patients are 18 – 54
56% of our patients are age 12 – 17

Our bedwetting clinic has a successful program for adults. We don’t have the most accurate statistics on how many adults are out there who wet the bed simply because they don’t report it to their doctor. Some adults don’t even disclose their bedwetting to their own parents, leaving them to assume that it was outgrown. And unlike Stan, there are many adults who lead solitary lives and avoid intimacy because they don’t wish to openly share about their bedwetting with a potential partner.

To have to live with bedwetting one’s whole life is a great burden. There is, indeed, a nocturnal enuresis remedy, and it can liberate an adult from years of shame, isolation, poor quality sleep, and the discomfort and suffering associated with a wet bed.


Warning – Outgrowing Bedwetting – When?

A dad from California called our clinic inquiring about our bedwetting treatment program for his 16 year old son. When I asked if there was any history of sleep disorders or bedwetting in the family, I was met with silence.
Quietly he told me he needed help for his son and then help for himself. He said the first round of wetting his bed stopped around 15, which is why he waited so long to seek help for his son. Plus, his pediatrician reassured him his son would stop by the end of 8th grade. Dad said he knew that was not the truth, because bedwetting showed up again when he was 27 and has continued.
The good news… we have 40 years of experience ending bedwetting for adults as well as teenagers and children.

Anyone have a similar story?

Bedwetting and ADD/ADHD

I have read your post, and I would like to offer some insight.  I am a psychologist, and I have an in-depth understanding about bedwetting and ADD.  Many bedwetters are misdiagnosed with ADD.  Symptoms of a bedwetter’s deep sleep disorder, such as the inability to stay focused or to concentrate, are almost identical to those of ADD.


Bed-wetting is not anyone’s fault; our findings point to a deep sleep that prevents the brain from responding to the bladder’s signal.   According to  the American Pediatric Association, less than 1% of bed-wetting cases are caused by a physical problem.


The only way to end bed-wetting successfully is to recognize that the problem is a SYMPTOM resulting from a genetically determined and transferred deep sleep disorder.  Until the underlying sleep disorder is addressed, a child will continue to wet the bed, frequently have daytime “accidents” and suffer from the psychological distress that the disorder can cause.


Parents naturally turn to their pediatrician seeking information regarding their child’s bed-wetting problem around five or six.  Often the “Medical Advice” is to wait:  Hearing “don’t worry, they will outgrow it“.  This is the worst advice you can get. While the child waits, the enuresis can remain and additional symptoms can result.


According to Harvard Medical School, sleep disorders are commonly encountered problems in pediatric practice, yet under recognized to a large extent. The consequences of under-diagnosed and untreated sleep disorders may include significant emotional, behavioral, cardiovascular and neurocognitive dysfunction.


Dr. Meltzer, Ph.D., from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and associates conducted a chart review for all well-child visits at the 32 primary care pediatric practices affiliated with this hospital.  Included were records for nearly 155,000 patients from birth to 18 years.


Dr. Meltzer stated “We found that all sleep disorders, including those that are less of a concern, such as bedwetting and sleepwalking, and those that are more serious, including obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy, are being under diagnosed in primary care practice,” the researcher noted.”


“Untreated sleep problems can impact every aspect of children’s lives, including growth, learning, attention, mood, and family functioning.”


For over three decades, The Premier Bedwetting Clinic, The Enuresis Treatment Center, has successfully treated thousands of people from around the world who thought there was no hope for their child’s bed-wetting.  Their unique approach to treating children and teenagers around the world, eliminates the bed-wetter’s sleep disorder. If a child does not have true learning disability, the symptoms will disappear.


I always encourage parents to visit our website and take advantage of the extensive knowledge on treating this issue.


Time is of the essence.
