  1. Need Advice

    Hi Everyone..I am new to this site and was diagnosed with celiac disease (the worst case my gastroenterologist has ever seen) in November 2003. Have been gluten free since January 2004 and am not sure what I am doing wrong. I always had the constipation problem, I eat a lot of beans and vegetables and nothing seems to work. The problem has actually gotten worse since being gluten-free. I have tried laxatives and stool softners and they don't work either. I had a colonoscopy the same time as the endoscopy (which determined the celiac disease) and the colonoscopy was normal. Anybody else out there with this problem. Also severe lower back pain the last three weeks. HELP! Thanks, Christine
