7. Age to start treatment
At what age can treatment begin ?
By the age of 5, the bladder and the brain, which control urination, should have reached full maturity. Nocturnal enuresis is generally diagnosed at age 5. As soon as the child is sufficiently motivated (even before age 5), and wants to correct the situation, treatment with an alarm can begin, because the system is easy to use and there are no side effects. Some private insurance plans will reimburse the cost of the treatment as of age 5.
