Diabetes and bedwetting (children)
My son has had diabetes for two years (levels between 10 - 15) usually up and down. Bed wetting is becoming a problem. Is this related to the sugar levels. He has also been diagnosed with epilipsy however the bed wetting has been ongoing.

Bridget, bedwetting can definitely be a sign of inadequate sugar control in children and according to the levels you mention it is not ideal in your son's case. I think you need to have his sugar control attended to before considering any other causes.
