Children who are overweight and wet the bed at night may have obstructive sleep apnea, a night-time breathing disorder. Bedwetting raised the likelihood of sleep apnea more than five-fold. Being overweight raised the likelihood more than fourfold.

However, being overweight and bedwetting are not associated with each other, according to the study in the journal Pediatrics.
