So I was glutened recently, (had chili I made and froze, forgetting the chilis I put in it were not gluten free, so I rediscovered this), but I was wondering. Is it common to always have to go to the bathroom and/or feel like you are constantly wetting your pants when glutened?

I get the symptoms of cystitis or urinary tract infection when glutened. When I get a UA done it never shows bacteria but I have the sudden and constant urge to pee. I never connected it to gluten until I went gluten free and was on antibiotics for interstitial cystis for years. No longer need those but I do get that when glutened. I have read of three or four others here who do too.

But to be on the safe side, make sure you don't have a UTI that just happens to be coincidental with your glutening. Better safe than sorry.

So this has me wondering...I am just discovering that I might be gluten intolerant and am not gluten free yet. For over a year now I have had a sort of discomfort in my bladder-it feels somewhat like I am getting an infection, but not as intense and an infection has not happened in about a year now. It comes and goes. I also urinate kind of frequently and can't seem to hold a lot. Now I'm just wondering if it might be a symptom...

This was one of the many symptoms I accumulated over time... this was one of the first I had. And 6 yrs later... I am gluten sensitive. So, could be... but not necessarily.

Thank you for starting this thread! This symptom is how my hell began. Three years ago, I thought I was getting a UTI (got them all the time in college) so of course I made an appointment with my GP. He said "well I don't see any evidence of infection, but here's an antibiotic". I had no reason not to trust him. Of course, antibiotic didn't work so he gave me a "stronger" one. All the ladies know what happened after that. Because (I now know) my immune system was already compromised by the inflamation response, the two courses of antibiotics caused persistant yeast infections (have only been infection free for about a week or so at a time over the course of three years). I was diagnosed with interstial cystitis, but I KNEW that wasn't what was going on. Never would have put the two together though. Glad to know that I wasn't crazy. Been feeling much better since going gluten free - have only had a couple uncomfortable days in the two months since I went gluten free. :)

    • Ah ... so that's why I've got a sweet tooth! Now I understand! Oddly enough I don't drink, smoke, do drugs or eat fast food either (although I did have a Gourmet Kitchen Burger the other day - did you know they did gluten-free? It was amazing!) So before I leave the doughnut question behind I'd just like to say, if a food manufacturer is reading this, please take note - there is a hole in the UK Doughnut market.   
    • Ah to hell with it. Most of the time these days I'm super good. I have so few vices now. I don't drink, smoke, explore the cosmic depths within my soul via chemical enhancements or eat fast food.  God I'm boring. The way I look at it the odd frozen gateaux or cheesecake is owed to me for all this forbearance. Besides we have an excuse for slipping below the standards of our American cousins. We sent all the puritans across the pond on the Mayflower leaving our island stuffed with hedonists and gluttons. Can we really be blamed for the odd sugary overindulgence? Living on an island of perpetual rain whilst they sun themselves in Florida or California? I think not!     
    • That's such a great idea. I'm all for buying locally. I only thought I might find a nut tree in a forest or something, lol. Like you do. But I'll search online for local farms that might have some, or ask at the local markets. That sounds kind of fun & could lead to finding other local stuff that maybe I could eat. Thanks!
    • That's a cute way of upping her iron intake   You can get a similar affect by cooking with cast iron pots: http://universityhealthnews.com/daily/energy/use-cast-iron-cookware-as-an-iron-deficiency-treatment/  so you could look for a couple of those if the fish ever swims off  
    • Welcome Betty Yes! I could pretty much have written your post myself.  I know exactly how you feel and how little the thought of going back on gluten appeals now you're feeling so much better. You have a tough decision to take. There's a forum faq stickied above and I tried to collect some answers and useful links awhile ago in this thread:  Hopefully they are of some help If its any consolation, many of the people here did exactly the same as you in removing gluten, realising it had a big effect then finding out that they should've been tested beforehand. I did it and managed 8 weeks of a challenge before testing negative for coeliac. I tell you this because you should know that even if you test negative it could be worth removing gluten from your diet as there are some that test negative but still react to gluten. Whether you choose to test or not, you've found a great site here and there's lots of good information and support available. Everyone here understands just how lifechanging your discover is to you and how bittersweet the realisation can be too.  Best of luck to you!
