In Topic: Celiac And Enuresis

06 March 2010 - 06:44 AM

I am new to this board as I have mostly been in the baking and cooking section. Quick intro...My Husband is diagnosed with celiac and has been gluten-free for 1 1/2 years. His brother, 2 sisters, 2 nieces and a nephew also have celiac. We have 5 children, 4 daughters ages 12,8,5,3 and a son who is 9 months. We have had all of the kids tested except for the baby and no one has had positive blood work. I question whether or not some of them have issues with gluten however because of specific behavioral symptoms that have been mentioned here. My 5 year old daughter gets severe headaches, is tiny for her age (33 lbs) and is a terror. I never realized the extent of it until she started kindergarten this year and when I was filling out a "get to know you" form the teacher sent home, I found that the only things I wrote about were how to deal with her mood swings, anger, lack of cooperation, etc. I had a really hard time thinking of positive things to write about her. It was really sad. As I read some of these threads today I am thinking that I will definitely try her on a gluten-free diet to see how it affects her moods. Anyway, I am actually concerned about my 12 year old. I was hoping someone would have some similar experiences and could help me. She has had issues with wetting the bed since she was about 5 years old. She went through a period of about 2 years when she was completely dry at night but then she started to wet the bed again. We have looked for physical issues (none), psychological issues(none) and have simply decided that it will hopefully be something she will eventually outgrow. Currently the longest period of time that she can go without being wet at night is 1 week. Her daytime dryness is fine and we have tried timers and alarms and all of those devices. She also gets frequent bladder infections. Sometimes as often as every 2-3 months. We think those are linked to constipation which is also an issue. In short, as I have been learning and reading about celiac, it occurred to me that maybe the constipation is a symptom of celiac and possibly if she went on a gluten-free diet it would clear up and that would help to eliminate the bedwetting. Am I stretching? Do I have celiac on the brain? Anybody else with experience with this? We have done all of the usual physical tests to ensure her bladder and kidneys are normal-they were all fine. The only thing that has given us a measure of success is waking her up in the middle of the night to try to retrain her bladder. This does not always work though. If anyone has any type of experience with this, please share! Thank you!

I have a 12 year old also who has been bedwetting since 4 years old. He also has Eczema and has had alot of cavities compared to my other 4kids (who have had none). Researching Celiac disease for myself (I have a looong list of symptoms), mademe start thinking he may have it too and could it be the cause for all his symptoms? Nothing has worked for him either, not even medication.

We all have a tough time in the beginning. Do you know where it slipped in? What can we do to help?

The holidays. Plus it feels hopeless, like I'm torturing myself and it probably won't help my issues. :(

This is so interesting to me. I've had SEVERE anxiety and depression for 14 years. SEVERE ezcema type stuff on my ears since I was a child. With each pregnancy-I got worse. (I've had 5) I've also had really bad tooth decay. Just recently I tried to go gluten free for 2 weeks, but failed miserably, which led to more depression. I'm so overweight and my body hurts like I have the Flu daily, and has been for the past 3 years. After reading this thread, I'm willing to give it another shot, I'm so skeptical though.

I was reading last night about too much Candida can cause mouth ulcers/sores. Read up on it if you haven't. Do you take a probiotic?
