My 4 year old daughter has been having constipation problems for a few years now, which has lead her to have issues with her bladder. She wets herself almost on a daily basis, sometimes it may only be a small leakage, other times she fully wets herself. I have the constipation under control but the bladder issues continue. She was fully toilet trained for around 8 months before the bladder problems began.

She also has very hyperactive behaviour, both in and out of school. She can be fine and calm one minute then its like something switches and she gets really hyper, which is sometimes hard to control, her teacher in school has complained a number of times the last few weeks about her. Her behaviour can be very impulsive and she does things that surprise me, it can be very unpredictable what she does next.

I have celiac disease, so we had blood tests done on her but they were negative. I’m maybe thinking she may have gluten sensitivity.

Does anyone have any experience of bladder/hyperactive behaviour with a gluten sensitive child? Did cutting gluten out help with symptoms?

Many thanks in advance.

do you have a copy of her test results? what docs call normal isn't always..
load her up and test again....or take her gluten free, but then testing would req a challenge. and it seems that public schools "need" that paper work to help maintain gluten free....

I am going to watch this hoping to hear more. My bladder would be irratated with gluten for sure. For hyperactivity make sure that she gets enough sleep. I have noticed that children act this way when they are tired, even if they are normal kids. Also, keep junk food out of her diet. "The Feingold Diet for Hyperactive Children" is a plan my mother used to help my hyperactive brother. It brought his struggles relief.



Going gluten free brought peace to my bladder.

I wish you and your daughter the best.

I'm asuming they have tested her for UTIs, Bladder infections, bladder injury or malformations? Bladder muscle control? Etc. I would hate for her to have a physical problem that isn't being diagnosed because they want to blame "gluten".

She has been checked for uti & she had had an ultrasound on her bladder & kidneys which were normal. We have tried cutting out certain drinks, doing regular reminders, making sure she drinks plenty of fluids. I have been taking her to an osteopath every week to try helping. The gluten connection is just another thing I'm trying to rule out as myself & a few family members have it.
