For some reason i have become bloated, and only able to have a bowel movement every four plus days ?? Prior to being on gluten free diet (since Dec 2009) I was the most regular human in the world, my b m were faithfully every morning. Any suggestions or advice?
Thanks for any and all input,

Eat more fiber, cut out dairy, and take probiotics and digestive enzymes if you're not already. Since your diet change, you may have started consuming something else in place of gluten that you're intolerant to. Try to investigate what you're consuming regularly and try cutting it out for a while.

2010- Gluten, Soy, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Nut free. Sugar, non-gluten grains lite(Yes, still plenty to eat!)
2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life
2009 Low T3 thyroid hormone, muscle twitching and adrenal fatigue
2006- Elevated Speckled ANA. GI suggested Celiac. Started gluten-free diet, but sloppily
2005 - Thought I had wheat "allergy." Stopped eating bread, oats problem too
College years - Still vegan -sickest point in life. Every classic celiac symptom
Teenage years - Stomach pain prompted veganism -> BIG mistake!
Child - Awful gas, D, C. Chronic infections, appendix and tonsils removed

I found that the digestive enzymes and probotics help me also. One other suggestion would be flaxseed oil. I use this along with the other items.

I have had this problem for a while now. My gastroenterologist actually thinks it's gastroparesis. I got an upper right quadrant ultrasound (history of gallbladder issues on my mom's side) and a gastric emptying scan yesterday. I go back to my ge next Wednesday. It may not just be a food issue.

Gastroparesis is just another name for decreased gut motility. Did your doc consider what causes your 'gastroparesis'? Constipation (which often occurs with delayed gut motility) can be a symptom of celiac disease, food allergies, bacterial overgrowth, parasites and/or candida, as well as hypochloridia (low stomach acid) which can also delay digestion and prevent absorption of vital nutrients.

Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

Thanks for responding. I just got the test (and a gallbladder ultrasound) done on Wednesday, and my follow up with him is this coming Wed. He didn't talk about the reasons behind it at the time, but I'm sure we'll talk more about it this week.
