Parents and caregivers of children are encouraged to attend a free seminar, Your Child's Bedwetting Problem, on Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Georgetown Hospital in the Activity Room. This program is presented as part of Halton Healthcare's Living Healthy public education series. Lida Jones, RN, Pediatric Surgery, Urology & Enuresis, Childrens' McMaster Hospital, Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation, will be presenting. Attend to learn about the causes of bedwetting, how to know when bedwetting needs to be treated, and what treatment options are available. · 15-20% of five year olds and 7-10% of seven year olds wet their bed affecting more than 200,000 Canadians over five years of age. 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; · 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 for this free seminar, call 905-338-4379 or email 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.
