Hey,

I had horrible c problems which I thought nothing could help. But, I found something called Oxy-Powder that has been a huge help. I bet you can find it if you google it. They do recommend using it to do a thorough cleanse first though, which is no fun to go through, but worth it in my opinion. Gets rid of all those toxins,

After going gluten-free 4 years ago, my years of explosive diahrea are over but now am experiencing constant constipation. It seems like I can only go every 2-3 days. I know the answer is fiber and I must not be getting enough in my diet so am looking for a laxative that is gluten-free and will not cause explosions! I drink lots of water so that is not the problem.... Any help out there for a laxative that is gentle and will work.... I sound like some kind of a commercial!!!

Hi Sparkles. Sounds like you need to start a priobiotic. I take Align and its done wonders to the overall intensity of the symptoms. You still get them but they are now manageable. Ive tried knock offs because honestly Align is not Cheap, but always seem to go back to it as the others just dont manage the symptoms as well. Good luck!

You know you are responding to someone who asked this question in 2006? Very few people are still around the forum after 7 years

    The biopsy would need to come from your small intestine. That's where the damage is done from celiac. But you need to be on a gluten diet for the tests to be accurate. How long have you been on the PPIs? My hubby had severe acid reflux issues ...

    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.
