Pediatric researchers offer solutions to bedwetting by children

That was the case for one 8-year-old who started having urinary incontinence issues in early grade school. And the problem was only getting worse, says her mom, Caroline, of Westbrook.

"One day my daughter had an accident on the playground but told the other children she was just sweating," Caroline says. Despite the child's quick thinking, the embarrassment of having urinary incontinence issues was becoming a daily struggle. Problems continued on and off for months, until the family sought medical care and learned the main problem was constipation.

This is not uncommon says Israel Franco, MD, a Yale Medicine pediatric urologist whose new program, called the Pediatric Bladder & Continence Program, helps children ages 5 to 21 gain bladder control.

"The first thing I tell parents is to make sure their child is not constipated," he says, adding that after potty-training, many parents have no idea if their children are having regular and normal bowel movements. When a child has constipation issues, it can lead to urinary incontinence because the nerves for the rectum and bladder are close to each other in the spine, and the nerve signals can get crossed. When that happens, the bladder may be led to contract instead of the colon.
