Usually affecting children over the age of four who have already been "potty trained," elimination disorders cause involuntary elimination of feces or urine from the body, usually but not always during sleep at night. Both of the main types of this disorder have some similar symptoms including secretive behavior centered around bowel movements as well as constipation and hard or extremely large stools. The exact causes of these disorders are not known, but if the symptoms appear, getting treatment for elimination disorders is easier than ever thanks to the online therapy available here at GoMentor.com. Before we talk about that, here are some other facts about elimination disorders that you should know about.
Types of Elimination Disorders
These are the two main types of elimination disorders that affect children and occasionally adults.
- Encopresis - The voluntary or involuntary passage of stools in a child who has been toilet trained - typically over 4 years old.
- Enuresis - Bedwetting - involuntary urination - in children over the age of 5 years old is called enuresis.
Symptoms and Risks of Elimination Disorders
Depending on the exact type of elimination disorder, the symptoms are going to vary, but they center around bowel movements and urination, often involuntary. Frequency of the events will vary, but in general if it occurs more than twice a month, it may be a sign of an elimination disorder. The specifics may vary from child to child, but it they appear, getting a proper diagnosis is important so that treatment can begin. If left untreated, elimination disorders can lead to other emotional problems which can spiral out of control.
