Parents and caregivers of children are encouraged to attend a free seminar Your Child's Bedwetting Problem at the Georgetown Hospital on Tuesday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. This program, presented as part of Halton Healthcare's Living Healthy public education series, will be led by Lida Jones, RN, Pediatric Surgery, Urology & Enuresis, Childrens' McMaster Hospital, Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation. Attend to learn about the causes of bedwetting, how to know when bedwetting needs to be treated, and what treatment options are available. Fifteen to 20 per cent of five year olds and seven to 10 per cent of seven year olds wet their bed affecting more than 200,000 Canadians over the age of five. It is more common in boys. The causes of bedwetting include: more urine produced at night time than the bladder can hold; slow development of bladder control; deep sleep; lack of the ADH hormone; and/or emotional/behavioural issues. Since this can affect a child's self esteem and can interfere with their social activities, treatment should be considered. To reserve a seat, call 905-3384379 or e-mail elittle@haltonhealthcare.on.ca. If you are unable to attend this event, but would like more information on this topic you are encouraged to speak with your physician.
