    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Ok weird question for everyone.

I used to pee constantly. I'm not even kidding you when I tell you that my friends in college called me "the urinator."

Now that I'm gluten free, I pee sooooo much less frequently! I can get through the workday only peeing twice, whereas it used to be like 7 or 8 times a day! Except when I get glutened. Then I get all bloated and pee every 20 minutes :angry:

I was just curious if anyone experienced the same thing. There 's probably zero correlation between the two problems...

There is a correlation. Same thing. When I've been glutened I feel like I pee every ten minutes. I also wake up in the middle of the night and pee. When I'm as gluten free as can be....normal pee-er again. Body trying to flush out "toxins"?

Now that you mention it, yes!

Wow! I hadn't really thought about why. But I used to pee all the time and now I only do a few times a day. Hmmm, cool.

I agree, I think the gluten makes us so thirsty. I am much more like a normal person in so many ways

I pee all the time! I have been gluten free for about 3 weeks, but I have been glutened a few times. I already feel so much better, it would be nice if I started peeing less as well.

I am in sales so I'm in my car all day long. I can't tell you how many nasty gas stations I've stopped in because there was no other choice.

I can't ever make it throught the night without getting up to pee. Once I wake up, I have a heard time going back to sleep because I've been so stressed lately. I would love not to get up at 4:30 anymore. That really isn't the morning.

How soon did you all notice a difference?

one thing i noticed about before i went gluten-free (or when i am glutened) is that after ingesting gluten, i would suddenly have to pee w/ extreme urgency. I would go, then 15-20 mins later, i had to pee again, and thats when i would get sick-- its weird b/c even if i dont know i am glutened, i will know by the constant peeing w/ urgency after the meal...its like the warning signal now! And also, yes, i have def found that when im glutened i am thirsty to a point where i can never drink enough water (hence all the peeing)

We have this in our family. Mine got so bad I would get up 3-4 times a night and my colleagues in the office used to make jokes about how many times I went to the loo. (about every 30 mins or do). I had a bladder scan, tests for cyctitis and other tests over the years, all negative. My sister is also gluten sensitive and has the same problem. Interestingly it can also be a side effect of taking too much Ventolin inhaler for Asthma.

When I was Dx with fibromyalgia 2 years ago I happened to mention it to the Rheumatologist. He said it was an 'Irritable Bladder' (to go with the Irritable Bowel!) and common with fibro.Now I take 1 Tolterodine tab daily. The difference was amazing, I only get up once in the night if at all. I go 'normally' now, I even have to remind myself to go!.

Since being gluten-free in Mid November it is better still, except when I'v been accidentally gluted. I am concidering stopping the meds now. I am probably drinking more now than when it was really bad so it wasn't a volume issue.

My doctor said in my case it is a neurological problem with the nerve between brain/bladder as tolterodine works on a very specific muscel at the neck of the bladder that gets overactive.

I have also had that problem. I think it has to do with when you get glutend you dont absorb real well, and it just filters thru you like a big britta pitcher. When I get glutened, I get dehydrated real fast. It only takes a matter of a few hours, sometimes.

Wow, thanks for all of your responses! I was just kind of grabbing at straws, but it seems like maybe there is a connection!?!

Last night I literally got up to pee 5 times to pee within an hour and a half period. And I was incredibly hyper. (Needless to say, I didn't get a great night's sleep last night.)

Based on your answers, and even though I didn't feel sick to my stomach, is it possible I accidentally got glutened?

Anyone else feel hyper and agitated when glutened?

Thanks!!!

Yep, hyper and aggitated. If I get glutened later in the evening and then try to go to sleep, there's no way. It's like I'm buzzing. And not "buzzing", but like an internal vibration almost. And my brain goes 100 miles an hour and I get aggitated. Before I knew about gluten, I just thought I was frustrated because I couldn't sleep. But once I went gluten-free, I noticed that if I got glutened in the evening, that's what would happen. Same thing happens if I get glutened during the day - irritable and restless, but I'm also running after my kids, so it's less noticable.

I've also noticed that I'm less thirsty off gluten, and pee less. I was always thirsty before.

Hmmm... now that you mention it yes! I used to get up a pee 3-4 times a night. Now sometimes I sleep right through or just wake up once or twice. Although I have also gotten off dairy too.

It wasn't like my bladder was full either, just a strong urge to go.

I have heard that hyper aggitated feeling described as 'tired but wired'.that fits me! and I notice it much more now i'm gluten & dairy free when I accidentally slip up.

You guys might also want to check out if you have a yeast overgrowth infection. This stopped for me completely (glutened or not) when I began to get control over my yeast infection. Great website candidafree.com.

I had the same symptoms. My bladder would feel full and pressurey alot and I had to go all of the time. Now I think it may have been correlated with bloating. Also, yes, when I get glutened I feel anxious and panicked.
