I'm not a medical doctor just a wife and Mom. My husband and 9 year old son are both adhd but only my husband has both adhd and enuresis. Our nephew (husbands side) is 13 is adhd and also has enuresis. So I do believe that there is a link. don't forget not alot of people will discuss enuresis with you.. so there may be more..

I have one daughter with ADHD and one with ADD both have enuresis. Many parents I have spoken with have the same issue.

Yes. And a link between encopresis (pooping in the pants) and AD/HD.

The same brain areas which deal with behavioral monitoring, control and inhibition/disinhibition are also responsible for the problems with these functions. People with impulsive-type AD/HD have the most problems.

No-one could teach my son to use the tiolet appropriately until he was 6. The symptoms abated markedly once we started him on methylphenidate. Prior to this we had no end of problems with school teachers and incompetent paediatricians who diagnosed it as "poor parenting".

OTOH, I have ADD, and had no problems of this nature as a child other than severe constipation. I suppose I coudn't focus enough to produce, while my son couldn't focus enough to prevent. Same underlying mechanism, different ways of showing it.

Investigating Potential Causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ?

It is uncertain what the exact causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are, but medical and psychology experts suggest that there are specific factors closely associated with the disorder. Scientists believe that in addition to genetics, environmental factors can contribute to ADHD. Researches also believe that diet, traumatic brain injuries, and the patient's social environment play an important role. Genetics Genes are the "blueprints" which dictate what mental and physical qualities any given person carries. Experts believe that genes play a major part in who does, or does not, develop ADHD. Several genes have been identified as being responsible for ADHD, and being the case, future prophylactic (preventative) treatments for the disorder are being investigated. Studying these specific genes could also help scientists make improvement in the symptomatic treatment of ADHD. Neurophysiology experts have conducted imaging studies which show that some children who carry these ADHD genes have thinner tissue in the areas of the brain which correlate with attention. This difference in the brain is not believed to be permanent, and a healthy level of thickness is usually achieved by early adulthood. This may explain why symptoms of ADHD more often than not improve with age. Environmental Factors Specific environmental factors which may cause or antagonize ADHD include prenatal alcohol exposure, lead poisoning, and second hand cigarette smoke. For instance, some studies have shown a link that children who live in homes with older or outdated paint jobs and plumbing have an increased chance of developing ADHD than in those who don't. Diet Recent research has shown a potential link between the intake of specific food additives including preservatives and artificial colors, and an increase in ADHD diagnoses. However, while the notion that sugars cause or aggravate ADHD in children has become popular, recent studies disprove this theory. Further research is being conducted to determine the exact role that nutrition plays in the development of ADHD. Brain Injuries Some children who suffered a traumatic brain injury exhibit behaviors which are not unlike those of ADHD. However, it is thought that only a fraction of children diagnosed with ADHD previously received any type of brain injury.
