I don't think it is gluten. It is kind of embarassing to ask, but I have to go number 2 3 times after I wake up. Is there something I could do, eat differently so I only have to do this once? It is holding me back from going back to work. I'm a school sub and you can't go to the bathroom if you sub and I don't want to say I can work until I can figure out how to eat to not have this problem? :blink:

Not gross- just a fact of life. :)

Do you mean D?? or firm BMs ??.

Because those are two different issues.

Do you take probiotics?

Your system may be trying to balance. (took me a while, but I used probiotics to speed things along)

This took some time, but resolved itself for me after a while. It can take a while to get the right fiber balance and as you heal, that balance changes.

Eating gets the system moving. Maybe eating as soon as you get up and having some warm tea or coffee, would get it moving earlier?


I guess you have the summer to work it out?

I was a three times a morning person. Not exactly D, but loose, and by the third time, looser. And the third time was always after eating breakfast. It changed pretty quickly, within a couple of weeks I think, after I went gluten-free.

But whenever I would eat salads or asparagus or sweet potatoes, there it was, back again. Maybe you're having trouble with too much fiber? I think for me it was pesticides. I could eat organic sweet potatoes but not grocery store ones.

Until just recently. I think my system healed enough to settle down and let me tolerate more. I still haven't tried salads again because I am taking a break from adding new foods for a while. I'm not taking any chances with this new-found good health. Maybe in the fall I'll try again.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I know coffee does me in and I need to get rid of it. It is just so hard. Thanks for your ideas. What should I eat for breakfast to try to lesson this situation? Is there a good gluten-free cereal or I just have no clue. I have to eat some fiber because I had a precancerous polup2 years before my celiac diagnosis. That Dr. told me I should be eating more, but then I get this problem. It is gross, but gets progressively looser. I have to drive my kids 20 minutes each morning to the gym so this is an issue. :huh:

Maybe some decaf in the morning or tea and wake up earlier and eat...affording you more time before work. Add you fiber intake later in the day, after your road "work" (It is road work, been there :P )

If I need to be somewhere when I'm out of routine, Immodium helps and relieves some of the anxiety too (which could add to the issue).

...just my little tidbit of suggestions. B)

Just try cutting the coffee out for a while and see if it helps? :)

I eat gluten-free Rice Krispies sometimes or I may also have some fruit and toast (I make my bread with a high fiber flour blend)with Pb or almond butter. I have smoothies with fruit, kale and ground flaxseed meal, which is great for fiber.

You can try a TBLSP. of ground flax seeds in 16 0z. of water twice a day --it's a good amount of fiber and Omega3s (along with your vegs and fruits and brown rice ) to keep things in check.

Hope this helps. Most of us have been where you are and we sympathize.

I have that problem with gluten cc. I had it big time pre diagnosis. It came and went for quite awhile when I was learning about what diet worked for me. It helped me to keep a food/symptom journal tracking everything I ate.
