Constipation With Celiac?

Recommended Posts

Ok I go from diareal, to soft mooshy stools, to hard stools, to smooshy stools but feeling constipated, what in the heck is up with me? I have not been gluten free because I have been trying to put tons in my system until I had my tests on Monday, but I was gluten free for a day after my pain so maybe that's where the hard stools came from! Man if I test negative I'm going to scream!!

I had the same thing for most of my life before going gluten-free. I have never tested positive for Celiac though, so maybe I can't help. (The only Celiac testing my doctor did was after I'd been off wheat and had almost no gluten for almost 10 years - no surprise that everything was normal.) All I know is that everything is running "regular" since I got my diet straightened out, unless I get dehydrated.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Hi,

I alternate between C and D.... C for a few days to a week, then D, then back again. Am not formally diagnosed thought the colonoscopy biospsy found chronic inflammation (dr. didn't check the right things to test for celiac). However, diet seems to be helping some (WHEN I manage to get it right - seem to be doing a pretty good job of getting glutened (or whatever it is that upsets me) at the moment).

I had such a combination, such a weird condition, not really diarrhea, but not really constipation, just very annoying, difficult too-much pooping and lots of discomfort and bad things...I couldn't explain it with existing words, so I re-named it constarrhea...for lack of better description.

I was never diganosed by anyone other than myself, but that constarrhea is about history with me now, in my 10th month of gluten free.

I definitely go from one extreme to the other. I found the C weeks were better because I wasn't cramping(eesh), but then I knew the D was to follow sooner than later. I would actually have a few normal days in between as I was moving from one to the other. I found adding fiber like Metamucil really helped to regulate me and my extremes were less drastic... although I still rotated.

I am new so I am not sure how it is all going to go down for me in the future--
