Still Constipated After 4 Months Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello again! So I went on the gluten challenge for about 3 months, tested negative to blood & biopsy (but positive gene), but responded so badly to the challenge with classic celiac symptoms that I stopped eating gluten anyway.

 

During the challenge I had diarrhea.

 

Then when I stopped, I got increasingly constipated, and have been for nearly 4 months now. The only way I can go to the toilet is with laxatives or coffee, and that's D too. My diet is basically whole foods now, and dairy free.

 

Am I broken?  :(

Wish I knew. True celiac and been strictly gluten free for 4 1/2 years, I take miralax and mag citrate every single day as well as pro and pre biotics, just to go somwhat normally. My diet is as perfect as it can get. I get enough fiber AND enough fat So let me know if you discover the secret

Thyroid problems can cause constipation. Mine is being tested right now. In the meantime I eat lots of nuts - about four or five ounces a day, split up into two doses. One after breakfast and one in the late afternoon. It helps.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
