Purpose : Diabetes mellitus (DM) is known as one of the common causes of secondary enuresis in children. However, enuresis in diabetic children is overlooked only as a symptom of polyuria due to hyperglycemia. We evaluated the prevalence of nocturnal enuresis in children with diabetes mellitus in this paper.
Methods : Among children with diabetes in three hospitals in Daegu area, 117 agreed to 'Tele research by means of a questionnaire'.
Results : Diabetic patients were divided into two groups: Nocturnal enuresis and nonnocturnal enuresis group. thirty-two of 117 (27.0%) patients were in enuresis group, with more daytime urination than non-nocturnal enuresis group ($4.2{pm}1.6/3.6{pm}1.2$ times, P=0.016). HbA1c at diagnosis was $12.0{pm}2.3%/12.0{pm}2.5%$, and at follow-up $9.3{pm}2.3%/8.3{pm}2.3%$ (P =0.042). Insulin was administered at $1.1{pm}0.5/1.1{pm}0.4$ units/kg/day. Ten children of enuresis (31.2%) group were monosymptomatic (MNE) and 22 (68.8%) children were non-monosymptomatic enuresis (non-MNE). Fourteen (43.8%) of enuresis group had persistent symptoms, with 5 MNE and 9 non-MNE each. HbA1c at diagnosis was $11.1{pm}2.5$, $12.4{pm}2.1$, higher in non-MNE (P=0.144). Average arousal during sleep was step $3.3{pm}1.2$, $2.5{pm}1.0$, higher in improved enuresis group (P=0.059).
Conclusion : Nocturnal enuresis among DM patients is underestimated. However, considering psychological and social effects of enuresis in children, extensive and long-term studies are needed in the future to clarify relationship between prevalence and DM control.
