I was diagnosed with celiac about 3 or 4 weeks ago. When I have a question, and I have many, do I jump in on another's message and add my new questions. Or is there somewhere else I go to post new questions which do not partain to the post I am looking at?

My first question is about constipation and gas/bloating.

With my sever fibromyalgia, I had constipation problems for years. Then I started taking large amounts of malic acid, magnesium, B6, and manganese. This suppliment along with cereal every morning solved my constipation problems. Now that I cannot eat cereal daily or at all, these problems are coming back. Any suggestions on what I can add to a protein drink to solve this problem which I can take daily?

Sorry, I cannot type too much at a time because of the muscle problems in my neck, shoulders, and arms or I would like to go into my story a little more. Oh well, a little at a time.

Thank you for your responses! Nancy

You can start a new thread. The post will not be pinned until a moderator pins it so if you don't see it right away in the section you put it under, that's why.

Nancy - There are gluten-free cereals available. I eat one that is like Rice Krispies, but is really gluten-free and is in the health food section of the store. Maybe you can find one of those you like. Good luck!

Hi Nancy, and welcome to the board!

As far as where to post, if you have a question or comment on a topic that is already started, just add your reply to that thred. If you have a question that you have not seen addressed, you can start a new topic. There are a lot of old posts that deal with many different topics--you can always do a search to bring up info. that way.

There are many gluten-free cereals available--I'm not sure of the fiber content. Maybe one of the hot ones would work for you. I don't have any suggestions on what to add to your protein drink, but I'm sure others will have some ideas for you.

We look forward to hearing a little more about you when you feel up to it :)

Here is a thread that might help--
