Rice And Constipation
0

7 posts in this topic

I remember my grandma always telling me that rice will bind you up. After a couple months gluten free my D is completely gone! (just on occasion I'll have extra loose stools with some cramping but not quite D) I have been having more frequent constipation and I assume it's b/c of the rice products I'm eating?? I don't eat white rice. I always buy brown rice and brown rice tinyada pasta with rice bran- does the rice bran add more fiber? or does it really make a differance if i buy it with or without? I was always wondering this. Then I saw that some people cant have rice bran or rice at all because of the protien it. :huh:

I eat plenty of veggies otherwise I dont know what I would do LOL - I'd be completely plugged up and dry. I ussually have brussel sprouts or broccolii- theses work the best for me, and I find that canned peaches help also, I eat apples everyday. Carrots I have to stay away from unless they are cooked well and potatoes just bother me altogether...

besides rice for my grains I also eat quinoa, kasha buckwheat cereal and occasionally corn tortillas. If there's anything else natural that helps with dry stools I'd luv some advice :) I cut back on the rice and notice the differance already. I'm not so much C but just really dry. (wow, gotta luv the poop topics) :lol:

This seems obvious, but gotta ask. Are you drinking enough fluid throughout the day?

ahh this sounds familiar, i know drink loads of fluids during the day, as well as more fruits and veggies then any human should, not to mention that i do drink tea that is a detox tea, its gluten free and it just helps things move along, it NOT a laxitive, its mostly green tea, dandilion, and a few other plants, you can get this in a drug store, i use one from Lame Advertisement, most of their products are gluten-free, itll take time but you will find something that works for you! GOOD LUCK!

thanks.

and yes, I drink plenty of fluids, mainly just water. Actually to help me drink more water i will mix it with a little lemon and clear liquid stevia. I often wonder if I drink too much water, but if I dont drink as much as I do I feel dried out. I also drink detox tea occasionally and green tea once or twice a day, they are both gluten-free. I definitly eat an insane number of fruits and veggies, but when I'm working it's hard to eat as much. I will keep searching for something...

A OTC gentle way to help hard stools is Colace Stool Softener

They are non habit forming and do help. One a day (usually) is all you need.

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
