How is bedwetting diagnosed?

In most cases, the child’s pediatrician will be able to determine if a medical condition is causing the bedwetting by taking a detailed medical history and performing a physical examination. The doctor may request a urine sample to rule out a urinary tract infection.

If your doctor suspects that the bedwetting is due to a medical disorder, he or she probably will order blood tests or a radiological exam.
