[In pediatrics,] first-line treatment for most dysfunctional voiding patients is to vigorously alleviate constipation. This can be done gently with robust daily hydration, mild laxatives, and prompting to the bathroom after mealtimes. This lays an excellent foundation to diminish other correlative symptoms of incontinence, bedwetting, and recurrent urinary tract infections. — Coleen Rosen, DNP, Milwaukee, Wis. (189-6)
