Bedwetting Could Be Curbed By A Simple Change In Diet

According to experts making some simple changes in the diet will go a long way in curbing bedwetting. Parent’s watchfulness of what their children eat and drink// makes a lot of difference in solving the problem.

Dr. Kirk Pinto, pediatric urologist at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, said that children who are having trouble with bedwetting should avoid the three Cs --caffeine, carbonation, and citrus. While there are medications to treat bedwetting, simple diet changes can help the majority of children, reports

'For bladder problems, anything that is an irritant is bad. Caffeine is number one, and it's the most common thing that these kids get from all the soda they drink,' Pinto said in a prepared statement.

Chocolate is another source of caffeine, and citrus fruits and their juices can also be irritants, the expert said.

'You want to get those things out of their diets. Go back to milk and water -- reasonable amounts of both -- and generally you can get the child to feel better,' Pinto said.

Red dye is another irritant. Parents should read the labels of foods and drinks and, if they contain red dye, keep them away from their children.
