I was just wondering if frequent urination could be caused by a food allergy. I introduced eggs into my diet just recently with the most obvious symptom being frequent urination, specifically at night. When I mean frequent, I mean every 15-20 minutes, sometimes not complete but just a small drizzle. I remember I had the exact same symptoms when I introduced tomatoes into my diet after avoiding them for so long. Can a food allergy cause this or should look our for other possible causes?

When you mentioned tomatos I immediately recalled reading about salicylate intolerance causing "urgency to pass water," but I don't know about eggs.

I practiced Elimination Communication (also known as Infant Potty Training) with my third and fourth kids. I didn't notice a correlation but many of the other moms I knew noticed that unusually frequent urination was connected to food allergies. Of course, adults are toilet trained, so it's a little different, but I'd say you were spot on.

Try removing the eggs from your diet and see if it gets better. Then, reintroduce them and if it returns you've got your answer.

I have multiple hidden food allergies and YES they can cause frequent urination. Try eliminating eggs from your diet for about 3 weeks then reintroduce them and see what happens.
I have dealt with this problem so long I now use frequent urination as a sign of something I shouldn't be eating. Listen to your body, it will tell you everything you need to know when you learn to pay attention to what it is telling you.
