  1. Hi, I'm newly diagnosed (June) and have had recurrent urinary infections since I was 18 (36yr old now). I have noticed that since I have gone gluten free I no longer have the problems. I used to get 3-4 infections a year. Every time I went to the Dr. he would ask if I had burning while urinating, and frequency and I would always say NO!! I had pain in my lower abdomen and I couldn't urinate. Now that I have gone gluten free I have noticed that I am "going" like a champ! No pain-no infections....coincidence? I have read that gluten can cause some bad swelling in your lymph nodes, and we all know that we have tons of them in our groin area. Was wondering if anyone out there has experienced anything similar? I also don't seem to be so crabby or tired like before. I have lost 18lbs so far and generally feel the best I've felt in a L-O-N-G time. This life change is, just that. A LIFE change! Any thoughts?
