What’s your opinion on bed wetting that may be triggered by diet? My son said he’d rather continue to wet the bed than give up fruits 😁, he LOVES fruit. I’m just guessing there is a link to fruit - Helen

Salicylates were certainly a trigger for my son in night wetting - Kelly

One sign of intolerance is often that we crave our problem, kind of like an addiction (withdrawals and all) - Tracy

My 5yr old daughter is the same πŸ˜‚ - Deb

Sals here πŸ˜’ - Rebecca

Amines cause my daughters oppositional defiance and part of that is holding onto her wee until she wets herself - Tess

4 weeks on the full elimination diet and my son (almost 6) has only had 3 wet nights when it used to be pretty much 5/7 days. Yet to find out our trigger, but it’s been amazing for him. He’s so proud of himself - Marie

Sals was definitely the trigger for my almost 7yo. We changed to moderate and low sals last yr and within a month she was dry at night or waking to pee. Was extremely hard as she loves fruit and didn't want to give it up either but we were also having other issues which also got much better when we cut the really high stuff - Peta

Sals triggered bedwetting in my DD but DS doesn't seem to be any food trigger – Lee

Sals cause bedwetting here for two of mine, one is also additives. Having progressed with tolerance to moderate level, now only happens if consuming over threshold so definitively related here – Emma
