My daughter, (11 yrs old) has hypertension- her regular blood pressure (without meds) is around 165/115. In addition, she still has to urinate about 3x in the middle of the night. Each time she really has to go. How can her bladder be so active at night if she isn't drinking anything? Sometimes she does not even make it to the bathroom on time. We have had a lot of testing done by a nephrology team, and so far everything has come out negative. We have had sonograms, mri's, angiograms...lots of kidney work-ups! The team paid a little attention to the bladder issues, but then decided it was a separate problem. Right now they are keeping her on medication fto regulate the pressure, but doing nothing for the night-time trips to the bathroom. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

  • I was a bed wetter until after puberty and had difficulty even after. I am 53 now and recently diagosed with gluten intolerence. I did not notice the submission of symptoms as I ate gluten free but did notice the increase in difficulty containing myself when I subsequently have eaten gluten. After my torcherous childhood I hope that this simple dietairy experiment may help others. Try guten free for just a month. When I have to have pizza, it usually takes me 2 weeks for all symptoms to subside.
