I'm hoping that results will be Celiac's instead of IBD due to the constipation.

Outlook regarding medication is not as bleak, that's for sure!

Yes, chronic constipation and the issues that arise from such is what we're currently experiencing. Don't know from what yet.

Yes! My son had terrible C before he was dx. He would go once a week and it was awful. Now he has normal BM's, once a day. When I got rid of the gluten my skin cleared up.

Yes, C was my main symptom. The breakouts could be the skin form of celiac, DH, you could also read about that and see if it fits.

Many people's C gets better just gluten-free, but not everyone. If you are in that position, keep posting. There are many here who can help. I have finally resolved mine, but not just gluten-free.

I have had IBS-C for 15+ years. The constipation had gotten worse over the last year. I went from taking a laxative once a month to every week--otherwise nothing would happen.

More recently (~past month) I have stopped eating wheat and consuming more butter and coconut oil in/with foods. I have been going every day except for a couple. I also feel less bloated and my clothes feel more roomy.

I did all the "right" stuff to no avail....exercise, fiber, water etc. but elimating wheat and adding fat has made such a difference. I also started eating less fiber (foods) as it seems to make my constipation worse. I still eat well though.
