So i thought celiac disease usally gives you D but almost always i seem to be constipated, never remember reading this as as symptom, When i was sick with the flue about a month ago i had really bad D that continued for over 2 weeks until they moved me back onto reguler foods, i continued to eat and continued to eat, was having better movements but malaboshion was obviuse * food was coming back out htat i ate but not D* then i went out to eat and had a club sandwich with batterd cross hatch frys the next day the blood stools started. After about 4 days of these my doctor finally saw me and said i may have IBS but to also do some research into celiac disease and eat as if i had it, thats when i joined this site. After following the diet for about 2 days the blood went away and i started to be reguler again * and started to feel great :)* then last week i had D for one day and my symptoms started to come back the D went away but now im all plugged up, i dont really feel like i need to go but i know i should since i have only gone once today and never really yesterday. Can celiac make you plugged or am i eating something wrong or maybe its not celiac that is really causing my symptoms i dont know. Not to worried about it just looking for some opinions on my corked bum

As many questions as you've had, you should be getting to the top of the learning curve fast. Yes C can be a symptom of celiac disease. That's what I have now, but i did start off with the classic D of celiac disease. (floating, frothy, pale and oh so very very stinky). Certain foods bind me - cheese, rice and bananas. But I can usually counter that with dried apricots, raisins and pears. Lots of water. Whenever things don't go as needed, I use Citucel - it's gluten-free and was recommended to my by my gi. I know the dosage seems excessive, but I start out with one dose at night, then again in the a.m. if things still aren't going, and keep it up until things do move along. Since I've upped my fruit intake, I haven't had to resort to good ole Milk of Mag. That's a sure fire unstopper!

You can absolutely have C. I did. The "Old Paradigm" of Celiac says D only, but now we know that paradigm was wrong. You can have one or the other or alternate between.

Lister--I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but bananas are constipating for a lot of people. That's why when kids (or anyone) gets D, they're told to eat bananas. How about an apple or some other fruit that you like?

i was staying away from other fruits because of acidic content, my stomic still gets upset really easaly and bananans are cheap. Oh well i guess just rice chips today for me then, as the only food i have is some rice chips bananas and some pork and potatoes but i cant cook the pork or potatoes because i cant get a email back from ajax about there soap

im not really eating too many bananas either, i had 1 that one day and 2 yesterday unless thats alot?

A little good news for you here--according to the CSA Gluten Free Product Guide, Ajax dish liquids--all variants--are gluten-free! Now you can make yourself a good meal! :) Cause you're not getting enough protein ;)

I think I am the queen of C, I pretty much never get D so when I do I know something really is not right with my system.

What works for me with the C is drinking hot water with lemon juice from about 1/2 a lemon. Also eating watermelon often does the trick.
