Sooo Thirsty, Frequent Urination, Celiac Related?
0

8 posts in this topic

I am 7 weeks pregnant, and went gluten free a little over a month ago due to positive celiac blood panel (Couldn't do the endoscopy due to pregnancy). I have been a little more "regular" but so far no other changes. However, the last two weeks (every day seems worse) I have been so ridiculously thirsty and urinating as soon as I drink something. I'll drink a glass of water then have to use the restroom about 10 min later, it's like my body isn't retaining ANY of it. I have also lost 6 lbs. I am worried the baby isn't getting any nutrients, I will be calling my GI tomorrow but anyone have this happen or know what could be going on?

Definately be seen by your doc. I almost wonder if you might have a bladder infection.

You may want your doc to check your blood sugar.

I'm 12 weeks now and have been doing the same for a while. I know I lost some, but I'm not sure exactly how much I lost with my morning sickness and just plain not being able to eat. I'm also a member at babycenter.com and many others have also experienced the same. Yesterday during the 30min or so that my husband and I were in the grocery store picking up superbowl snacks, I had to pee three times. And I'm getting up sometimes as many as 4-5 times each night. But if you're worried, I'd definately talk to your OB/midwife about it and get their opinion.

Hspichke & Jswog, if you not experiencing a bladder infection it could also be gestational diabetes, less common but it does happen during pg. I had it and low blood iron with my last pg. I was real sick, lots of nausea, energy would just quickly drain my body. I started taking a iron supplement, not something the doc suggested for me. Do take a look at your labs if they are testing your iron levels. And docs put me on a low carb diet and that fixed it. I pretty much ate fresh veggies and meat, eggs and the like but stayed away from sweets and I was fine.

I've had similar thirst and frequent urinating too but I was informed by a doc that it could be gestational diabetes so I need to cool it on the sugars, I'm pregnant so water is huge during this time (needed for baby's growth and flushing out toxins), and being pregnant will cause one to urinate alot anyway. There is pressure on the bladder now more than ever. ;)

If your labs come out good than don't worry, just keep drinking water, baby's whole development and the womb will need it for expantion.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.

      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.  
    • Kidney disease question
      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
