In Topic: What Do You Use?

One thing to remember (comes from years of IBS) is when you increase fiber, you MUST increase water, so if you take a fiber supplement and it constipates you, you need more water! ;)

I am by *no*means very experienced, but I am planning on using Citrucel, it's methycellulose, which is a man made fiber. That might help. Anytime you change how much fiber you are getting things change. Funny, I have gone from constipation to more diarhea. I have been having a hard time being totally gluten free though. (i just cheat when I am tired). Good luck and let us know if you find something that works!

In Topic: Could I Have Celiac?

Wow, you sound exactly like me, same symptoms, age and everything. I even found out the same way! I have not had the test for Celiac, and have only been attempting to live wheat free for a short time (very unsuccesfully I might add, lol). I have had the flushing before an episode before too. I could have written your post! I've had the hypoglycemic episodes too, just not the lactose... Right now, I am just assuming I am gluten intolerant and not celiac, I will see if my doctor recommends having hte test. My sister has seen improvement off wheat also, so that makes me wonder tho.....

In Topic: Unidentified Food Problem?

I figured out that yesterday's stomach ache was due to aspirin in Excedrine Migraine. But, my stomach hurt today after eating a grilled chicken salad. I'm guess it was something in the ranch dressing or maybe cheese? i need to add, that at this point I think I am only gluten intolerant, not celiac, but I guess you never know for sure unless you have the test....

So the fact that you are just gluten intolerant will show up on the test? Does that mean you are not Celiac if you have no intestinal damage?????? :huh:
