ADHD and Bedwetting

Many children worldwide are diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). They are characterized by lack of attention span and hyperactivity.

Many of those children are also suffering from bedwetting. Is there any connection between those two issues? Much scientific research has been conducted, searching for relationship between the two. The conclusions are very vague and inconstant. It is tempting to believe that there is a connection between the two, however no clear cut proof has been provided.

In fact, each condition is related to different center of the brain. Since the prevalence of ADHD and bedwetting is so high, statistically, the chance that both issues will be found in the same child is very high.  However, many children diagnosed with ADHD do not have a problem with bedwetting and vice versa.
