Teen who wets the bed

Hi I am a 14 year-old, I have started wetting the bed again. My mom doesn't know about it yet. I have never had any problems like this before. What should I do?

It is rare for a boy to have a urinary tract infection.  You might have diabetes.  You might just have turned into a heavy sleeper.  Because it could be diabetes, you need to tell your mom. 

  If it is diabetes, you have to become a hero for your body.  When you have diabetes, instead of your body just taking care of itself, you have to step up to the plate and be in charge.  If you don't protect your body, then there are all kinds of consequences.


My 15 year old wets the bed still. If there's been a big change in routine.. or life (going to high school?) that could be the cause.. It could also be puberty.. if you're just hitting puberty. Your body could be out of sync with your bladder. All in all, the first thing i would do is tell your mom. She's your mom and she wants to look out for you. She's there to help.
