A medical history and a physical exam are also part of a medical evaluation of bed-wetting. If you are having your child evaluated for bed-wetting, keep a diary for a week or two before your visit. Write down when wettings occur and how much urine is released.
In some cases, further testing may be needed. Tests may include:
- A urine culture to find out if your child has a bladder or kidney infection.
- Psychological testing, if emotional stress is suspected.
If a child has uncontrollable wetting both at night and in the day, other tests may need to be done.
