My almost 4 year old son, who was previously potty trained (albeit not accident free), is having 4-5 accidents a day. It started about 3 weeks ago. There haven't been any major changes in the household and I can't think of anything that would stress him out. He is at home with me and his younger sister.<br><br>
I thought initially that he may be having some sort of potty regression. But, he is almost 4. Isn't that kind of late for this type of thing? What really struck me was that he was peeing his pants, sometimes right after I had seen him pee into the toilet.<br><br>
He is definitely already sensitive to dairy, he can't handle whole milk but he does drink 2% without a problem. I'm questioning whether maybe he has other allergies, though, because for the past week or two he has had a red ring around his anus after he has had a bowel movement.<br><br>
I brought him to the Pedi yesterday, and the Pedi seemed fixated over the fact that he had 1+ protein in his urine. So, instead of examining him properly,. he is sending him to a Pediatric Nephrologist to be evaluated. .<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> I'm just a mess with worry trying to figure out what best to do while I wait for them to get back to me with an apptmt to see someone else. Does any of this sound like Celiac or allergy? Maybe if I did something to his diet it would improve.

If he were mine, I'd immediately pull dairy from his diet 100% and see what difference it makes.

Me too. If you already know he's sensitive, take it all out before you start wondering if it's something else in addition. Wetting the bed was one of the symptoms for DS too. I am assuming that the doctor checked him for a UTI?

Yes, they did check his urine for infection. It was negative. Iwas surprised b/c I thought that it would turn up to be an infection. I wasn't thinking too much about allergy initially, but the red bum has been persistent, in hindsight.<br><br>
I'll try taking out dairy first. Do you know how quickly it would register as being better once I remove it? Have you ever heard of proteinuria with allergy? Thanks for your help!
