My physician never told me about bedwetting alarms, why?

We do not know your physician and his or her reasons for not mentioning bedwetting alarm treatment. However, we do know that bedwetting is viewed as “trivial” and as a non-medical condition by some physicians. These physicians will simply reassure parents that there is nothing medically “wrong”, and that children will outgrow the condition.

Unfortunately, there is a tendency to overlook just how long it can take to outgrow bedwetting, and some physicians don’t understand the true struggles of a bedwetter and his/her family. Furthermore, many family doctors have little training in bedwetting, and even less in bedwetting alarms. As a result, the awareness of bedwetting alarms and how to use them is often low.

Consider asking for a referral to a pediatrician who has more time set aside for each appointment and is generally more knowledgeable about bedwetting.
