Does anyone know what can cause me to have unprocessed food particles in their bowel movements all of a sudden? Does this mean I am not absorbing my food properly?

The simple answer to your question is YES.

Food nutrients are absorbed in the small intestines. When the villi of the small intestines are damaged food easily passes through without breaking down. My own personal record was 15 minutes.

This is very typical with Celiac Disease and/or other food intolerances.

I agree that if there is undigested particles then there is an absorption problem. I think even if your intestinal damage has healed or is healing, you can still have absorption problems due to faster than usual transit of food through your GI tract. So if your tummy is upset and you have diarrhea, things might be traveling through your small intestine too quickly to be absorbed. I believe I am close to being fully healed and this happens to me sometimes when something upsets my stomach, even if it's not gluten.

But also remember that this can happen to anyone now and again. If it keeps happening, you might consider taking a prebiotic, like Digest Gold. I was having D and undigested food for a couple weeks, and started the pills again - now much better...absorbing again!

Hi, Can anyone tell me how long it may take until i have some sort of normality back with my bowel movements. I've recently been diagonsed with celiac and have been on the diet for 2 weeks now. I'm most impresssed with my new found gluten free cooking skills and so is my mum!!!!

My diagnosis came after sufffering from chronic diarhea for 6 months and very low folate levels. I get the impression that it may take some time to see an improvement with my bowels, is this correct?

Cheers :D
