Tonsils and Bedwetting

Interesting study indicating that about half of the bedwetters (ages 5 to 18) with breathing difficulties while asleep (apnea or snoring) stop wetting the bed after a tonsilectomy. Those who stopped wetting “had significantly more arousals and obstructive apnea episodes but fewer awakenings than” those who continued to wet.

Confirming again a connection between sleep patterns and bedwetting.

  1. So glad I found your site!! I’m a mother of 2 with stress incontinence from having kids. My oldest stopped wetting the bed once he had his tonsils out. He was the worst snorer and would often wet when his allergies were bad. Maybe that’s also a connection.
