Bedwetting, also known as nocturnal enuresis, can be influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Studies have shown that bedwetting tends to run in families and that there is a genetic component to the condition. For example, if one parent had a history of bedwetting, their child has a 40% chance of developing the condition. If both parents had a history of bedwetting, the child’s risk increases to 70%.

However, genetics alone cannot explain bedwetting. Other factors, such as the child’s bladder capacity, hormonal balance, and psychological factors, can also contribute to the condition. Additionally, bedwetting can be triggered by environmental factors such as stress, changes in routine, or sleep disturbances.

Overall, while genetics can play a role in bedwetting, it is a complex condition that is influenced by multiple factors.
