A 9-year-old boy has been referred to you for evaluation of bedwetting. He is dry during the day but wets every night. His physical examination and urinalysis are normal. Which one of the following is the most appropriate method for managing this child?



1) psychiatric counseling

2) desmopressin (DDAVP®)

3) waking at night

4) nightly diapers

5) limitation of fluid intake

1) psychiatric counseling before all


2) desmopressin (DDAVP®)

3) waking at night

4) nightly diapers

5) An alarm system that rings when the bed gets wet and teaches the child to respond to bladder sensations at night.


What do you think now?
