No Diarrhea

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here not ever have diarrhea as one of their symptoms of celiac disease?

I have runny stools but not diarrhea. I have constipation for sure but no D. Does anyone have these symptoms? Is D a main symptom of celiac disease?

Probly soo. (as my daughter would say). The big D is to me the main issue and with that includes the malabsorbtion (sp) issue the includes weight loss, brain fog, I get the hand shakes, and a little speech impared. (also typing impared, as is obvious).

Excuse the discription, but when I have a poop that lookes like a real poop, that is a good day. This issue of poop has been a daily post here. So don't feel that you need to be polite.

Being now gluten free, I am more sensitive to fiber/or lack of it at times. I have a good morning, after lunch I usually stay at home. By dinner I'm ok. Lunch somehow gives me a challenge to figure it out.

You are probable still healing and that will take some time. Stay cool and gluten free, and I bet it will clear up in the near future.

Hang in there. Things will get better.

I typically will have way more problems overall with constipation than "D" . Before my diagnosis I never really had "D" just severe constipation where I might go 3x a week or less if I went away on vacation :( Then just before my diagnosis I did start getting some "D" but still mostly constipation.

Now if I get glutened I get the looser stool that kind of falls into itself in the bowl :unsure: but usually I will go every day now as long as I take 500mg of magnesium 2x day am and pm and also 4 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds. I also take 2 tablespoons a day of carlsons or nordic naturals cod liver oil.

I try to eat as best I can..... but I feel like the above has seriously helped me out both with inflammation and the constipation problem.

I suffered from extreme constipation for years before the D hit. I don't know if this is because of the GI system wanting more nutrients or if it may be from the neurological effects of the celiac. Also some celiacs get mostly neuro symptoms, everyone is different.

I have never had a problem with D - only now if I get glutened I get a short bout.

I have chronic C and have had my whole life. It has not cleared up after 10 months gluten free.

When I say chronic - if I don't take laxatives I just don't go - period. Others mention being constipated and only going 3 times a week. I have allowed myself to go for 3 weeks without a BM before - got really ill and have to pump myself full of laxatives to get relief.

I have spoken to others with the same problem - although not many.

I've always had the opposite problem, years before I started taking iron supplements. In fact, I take a natural laxative with my iron every night. It's rare that I have D. This new diet has been making things work a little bit better though.

I was always, always, always constipated! Even after going gluten-free! I tried fiber supplements, they just made it worse. Castor oil and such helped a little bit. Then a herbal healer friend suggesting taking herbs to stimulate a sluggish liver, and by golly!, it's like a miracle! Regular, daily stools, and not near as tired and worn out as before! I do my best not to miss a day with my herbs now!

I think most of my life at times I would have looser then what is probably normal stools and sometimes I would go more often, like six time a day, but never really noticed this until the past 5 years or so of having a child. Always way worse when I would eat a vegan diet. Then when I started having big problems a year ago I would have C and then very bad D! Back and forth. Then my tests for celiac came back as borderline for celiac and I had been on the gluten-free diet for two months already. Gluten makes me sick and I don't want to start eating it for a biopsy. SO I stay on the diet, but I never have Diarhea at all now, unless I get gluttened. I do still have problems with C! It is very frustrating. I don't know if it is what I am eating or what. I don't have stomach aches like I used to. I am not nauseated anymore or bloated like when I consumed gluten. I think maybe it is eating all these white rice breads and not getting enough fiber, but even when I do get enough fiber, sometimes I think that I just have IBS and celiac. I don't know if others have this problem, but it IS very frustrating.

I was under tremendous amounts of stress when I started feeling very sick. Some of my other symptoms before going gluten free, were my legs ached all the time. Bone pain. Then I was moodier, chronic yeast infections. I do know I am better off without gluten.

So, Dessa, what herbs do you take?

Oh, and my son has celiac too.

What is going on with you Lemonade? What are your symptoms?

I have only been gluten free for about 16 days. Before being GLuten free i would have awful nausea ( no vomiting), indigestion, hearburn, lots of bloating ( like i was pregnant with a elephant), gas, stomach pains, horribel fatigue, muscle aches, constipation, runny stools...SInce being off gluten i have seen some improvement. the symptoms are less severe. My mainn symptoms right now are fatigue, indigestion and constipation and runny stools and the sensation that i have to poop but nothing is going to come out. I guess that it is still too early to expect a complete miracle and feel 100%. Although i know i am intolerant to gluten, i had a endoscopy today and iam waiting for the results. I am also getting tested by Enterolab.
