when my son was on gluten and horrible horrible gas pain/ abd. bloating (belly looked like  a 9 month pregnant belly) he would start holding his urine for long periods of time,and he was not potty trained yet. Once when he was hospitalized he didn't urinate for 24 hours, until they placed a catheter-and it wasn't dehydration because he was getting IV fluids. Strangely, nobody seemed concerned about this, except me!? For weeks following his episodes of bloating, he would got 8-9 hours without urinating.


Now that he is off gluten, he urinates much more regularly - like every 3-4 hours. Is there a link related to gluten , or maybe just because the bloating was blocking his bladder?
