How Common is Trouble with Urinating Among Children?
Though not often talked about, trouble with urinating is a common problem, and families are not alone in dealing with these issues.
About 40 percent of pediatric urology visits are related to lower urinary tract disease (LUTD), or the condition that can lead to issues like nighttime wetting, daytime wetting and other urinary problems. Furthermore, 5 to 7 million children 6 years or older have reported issues with daytime wetting. Daytime wetting occurs in 10% of 5-to 6-year-olds, and 5% of 6-to 12-year-olds.
