Hi All

I just wanted to throw this question out to the community especially those who have more knowledge about incontinence than I do.

My question is:- Are there are any links between Incontinence and Dyslexia?

To the extent that dyslexics have difficulty communicating their needs to caregivers, and reading and understanding what they need to know in order to manage their condition, I would imagine that there is a relationship.

Interesting question. I'm not aware of an established link. I think it's quite possible, but maybe some other factors need to be present as well.

As to a similar correlation, Wikipedia states that kids with ADHD are 2.7 times more likely to wet the bed, and that intellectually-disabled people have a higher tendency toward bedwetting. There's a study indicating that intellectually-disabled children have a bedwetting rate that's almost 3 times higher than non-intellectually-disabled children (26.6% vs. 9.5%, respectively). However, not all bedwetters have ADHD, not all intellectually-disabled children wet their bed, and some non intellectually-disabled children do.

I think there's a chance that the kind of neurological short-circuiting that happens with dyslexia could cause incontinence as well, and also the stress of coping with dyslexia could trigger bedwetting episodes for people with a history.
