i have been having health issues for a while so i'm finally giving up gluten to see if i'm gluten sensitive and if that's the issue. it's been 48 hours since i've had gluten and prior to this point i had been constipated for months. in the last two days i've gone 6 or 7 times. is my body getting rid of all the bad stuff like a detox? am i doing something wrong or is my body telling me this is right??

If you aren't constipated anymore - maybe its just clearing out the poop to try to come to a more "normal" amount?  

You might want to run, today, to your doctor and get tested for Celiac before its too late.  I think its important to know how serious you need to be about your gluten free diet and to be aware of the other issues that Celiac may have caused.

I would suggest staying on gluten and going and getting tested now. You have to be eating it daily for 12 weeks for the blood test, and 2 weeks for the endoscope.

This clearing your doing is a sign that gluten is effecting your diet somehow, now if celiac disease or NCGS I do not know but you should be tested prior to trying out the gluten-free diet. NOTE there a bunch you will have to learn about diet, cross contamination, etc. This is no "OH a bit is alright" or "Fad Diet" this is a life changing issues that can lead to much improved health and healing if your have the disease. My issues slowly progressed over years then hit like a hammer when I got older with severe issues. I was prior to all this for years having issues of constipation for 4-10 days average and thought it was normal.

No matter the outcome this is a great community to help you out on your gluten issues. But first really go see about the test and talking to your doctor. MAKE SURE you get the FULL CELIAC blood test.

When I consumed gluten sometime my stool would be so hard it was like crayon.  Eliminating at times would be difficult.  Alternating between that and frank diarrhea.
