Exams and Tests
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 Reference urine culture to find out if your child has a Reference bladder or kidney infection Opens New Window.
- Psychological testing, if emotional Reference stress Opens New Window is suspected.
If a child has uncontrollable wetting both at night and in the day, other tests may need to be done.
