Should I Eat Gluten?

Recommended Posts

I am constipated and have been for 2 days. I went out earlier today and bought myself some prune juice and drank a full glass of it. I am now suffering from diarrhea...if you can even call it that. It's basically water.

However, I can still feel that I am not totally empty when I try to go or when I sit down.

My parents suggested that I eat a few frosted mini wheats because they have been known to totally get my digestive system moving in the past.

Should I give it a shot? Or should I try something else?

so before stopping gluten I tried sooooo many constipation remedies.  If you've already tried enough fiber with water and that's still not cutting it, I would suggest trying Fleet Liquid Glycerin.  It's not the most "attractive" remedy, but it gets the job done.  Plus with the Fleet brand there are no chemical stimulants, it is pure glycerin, so it's better for your body than harsh Dulcolax or Exlax.  Also because the glycerin goes in the other end, the relief is sooooo much quicker.  

 

Don't buy the glycerin capsules because they take too long to melt.  Go to your local drugstore and pick-up a box of Fleet Liquid Glycerin.  

 

Please, please don't eat gluten.  Eventually your body will regulate itself, but until then try and use the least chemical dependent remedies if good old fiber and water don't work for your constipation.  Remember to drink coconut water or banana to balance electrolytes from any diarrhea.  

 

here's a link to the product I've used in the past:

Magnesium can also work well. If you are impacted, though, you may need a bit of additional help?

No you shouldn't eat gluten under no circumstance, before I knew about my gluten intolerance I was actually worried of my constipation which was the first signs of gluten intolerance then what happened next is I ate ramens because in the past they really helped me flush the stuff out. So I went and ate them, 2 pack and nothing came out, so i tried it again the next day and still nothing. So I did what you did and went with prune jucce, drank a full liter and was bloated and got diarrhea and only got water out.

 

I suggest trying to cut oatmeal at least until you don't get constipated and btw make sure it is gluten free oatmeal, as regular one may and surely will have been in touch with wheat(gluten).,

 

Coffee works very well and CASTOR OIL this will work wonder, this is coming from someone who took 4 pills of senna only to get barely anything out, See if you can find one at a organic place and drink 2 tablespoon you will get it out but it won't feel bad , takes 4-10hours.

Thank you for your reply!:) 

I had some pears, a few carrots, and a little bit of turkey for dinner and all seems well thus far.  I was worried to eat anything more substantial in case I am still clogged.

 

I decided to take everyone's advice and avoid gluten.  I plan on drinking some more prune juice in the morning since it is working to clean me out.  I am unsure if there is anything left though.

I am extremely sore from going to the bathroom all day and trying all of yesterday, so I don't know if what I am feeling is just my body aching or if I need to find something else to help with whatever is left.

 

I will look into castor oil tomorrow if nothing changes or I start to feel all nasty and "full" again.

No no and no on the gluten.  You can make things worse for yourself.  Myself, having had issues all of my life, I drink an herbal tea which has overnight results.  It's good if you need some quick help to get back on track.  Sometimes in spite of eating loads of fruits and veggies, water and all the rest we just need a little help.

Didn't I read in another thread that you tested positive for celiac?  If that's true, then you really need to start thinking of gluten as a poison to your body.  Your parents need to think that way, too.  Just because it doesn't kill you instantly doesn't mean it isn't going to kill you.  

 

I'm new to celiac/gluten intolerance myself, and this is the way I am forcing myself to look at any gluten containing foods.  I am much older than you, and have just been diagnosed with many problems stemming from gluten-- brittle bones, kidney disease, liver disease, and many digestive problems.  You don't want to end up where I am in another 20 or 30 years!  I wish I had known I had this problem when I was much younger because I could have prevented so many other problems.  If you take this seriously, you won't have to end up like me.
