I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 6 weeksish ago, after 6 months of pain. My poop, is still constipated and it has white things in it. I was thinking could it be gluten being wiped out of my body?

 

I KNOW ITS TOO MUCH INFO but we all poop.

Gluten doesn't linger in your body waiting to be pooped out.

It can takes months or longer to heal your intestines. You also have to consider that you are eating differently - maybe more fiber? Or less fiber? Or more fat? etc. Even if your body has healed, the whole system may still be off and probiotics may help that.

I take probiotics. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, that isn't gluten coming out.  It may be mucus, which can happen around stool when you are very constipated as it irritates the GI tract.  Probiotics alone are probably not enough for the constipation.  Take a look at the links below for some ideas on foods that may assist in loosening things up gently.  Also, a fiber supplement or even foods like prunes can help.  Eat your fruits and veggies, limit things like processed foods, dairy/cheese, and choose whole grains over white grains.  For example, brown rice and brown rice pasta over their white rice counterparts.  If you don't get a lot of fiber in your diet, do add it gradually, as the initial phase of getting out the old leftover constipated stuff can cause some discomfort.  Prunes are my magic cure for chronic constipation (we call it "C" around here, lol) and if you want to try that out, just eat 1-2 a day, then you can kind of go by how easy the go is to figure out how many is a good number to eat each day.
