Frequent Urination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is related to celiac or not. I have been gluten free for about 4 months now but I am still very thirsty causing me to pee a lot. I may pee in the night alone 3-4 times. I've had my blood sugar tested and that was normal. I do not have any problems with my thyroid.

I've been to my doctor numerous times and it was of no help. What could this be and what should I get checked out?

I have long forgotten my source for this, but it's my understanding that you absorb 75% of the fluid intake in your small intestines. If you have villi damage, it's a reasonable cause for extra ordinary thirst. I experienced this in the early stages after my diagnosis.

Listen to you body. But maybe you can concentrate your fluids earlier in the day, so you can sleep at night.

I could just drink in the morning but still have to pee that often. Other times I just wake up in the middle of the night with a mouth so dry it's sticky.

This might sound like a stupid question, but do you just constantly have the urge to urinate or is your bladder just physically full (or both)?

Yes, I too have to urinate 1-2 times a night and have extraordinary thirst. I have also lost some control over my urinating, though this seems to be better when I take my sublingual b12's.

When you've gotten other bloodwork done, have they tested your sugar? Diabetes has a high co-relation with Celiac disease. I'm not a DR so don't let my suggestion worry you, but it's always worth discussing ongoing symtoms with your DR to see if there are other things s/he has missed. My internist said many DRs will just attribute everything to the Celiacs once someone has been diagnosed and as a result sometimes miss other underlying issues (thyroid, blood sugar, etc). Extreme thirst, dry mouth, and frequent urination can be symtpoms of blood sugar problems. Good luck!

My bladder is full when I have to go. What's weird to me is that I'll have days when I'll hardly drink but still be peeing no stop.

Hi, everyone, I hear you. I have been diagnosed with celiac since March of 2006. For about the past year I have had the problem with having to go to the bathroom several times a day and during the night. After being diagnosed, I went off the milk and gluten and felt better after about 6 months. I felt better, but the past year I noticed more about going to the bathroom more and have to way one of those pads due to leakage. I asked my doctor and he said keep doing kegel exercises and it will help. Now I am tryin to see another doctor to get a second opinion. Any ideas, hope you can share. Thanks, if I come across something from the new doctor I will share.
