I second the dairy free but if the bowel is stretched out as it probably is dairy free will help a little, but the bowel needs help. We noticed with pur youngest milk constipates her, but not till after it had been going on a while so we had to put her back on miralax to give her insides a break.
Occasional constipation thankfully can easily be fixed by diet, chronic constipation sucks, without medical intervention permanent stretching can be done to the bowel and you never get full muscle control back. Hopefully we are passed those days I live not having to wash poopy clothes anymore, just the odd wet thing from my self-potty trained 29 month old!

For a happy update i can happily say I talked to my girl's GI doctors NR. I like her a lot:)

Well she had seen the x-ray and really felt that putting Rebekka on Miralax would be a good next step. And I am making an appointment to go see her in person so we can really make a plan. 

I told Rebekka and she got very happy that maybe we can solve this.

 

Again thank you to all of you for advice, we would not have gotten this far.

That's great! It might take a few weeks to get the dose right nd things moving along again, so don't worry if it isn't working at first. I'd mention a bowel management plan too, I know she's older than my kids but it will help. Even now miralax free my kids go to te bathroom as soon as they get up, before and after eating, before we leave somewhere, before we go somewhere and before bed, and also when thy feel the urge. Our ped said it would help retrain their body into relaxing and get things going.

Good luck

My daughter was diagnosed at 18 months, potty trained as any other kid around 3 years old.

At just past 4 we were still battling the gluten and she was pretty anemic. Got on iron pills that were 3 times the normal and her iron levels stabilized and so has her ttgiga. but since she got on the iron pills (which we took her off 6 months ago) she has had issues with going #2. Basically it feels like she does not realize when she needs to go, which she used to before the iron pills.

 

Anyone else experienced anything similar? Can it be because of her celiac or what do you guys think..

I am asking you, cause I am not very happy with our familydr nor her specialist..

 

Thanks

My daughter was diagnosed Celiac too, her symptoms improved with gluten free diet (she had severe reflux, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, stomachaches, etc) but it was not enough until I went dairy free, sugar free, starches free and basically I eliminated all processed food. I found this "paleo" diet that saved our lives (I had the same problem) and I finally see excellent result.
