So I stayed at my mom's apt. for a few days (def. not a gluten-free apt!! lol) I brought all my own food and used my own silverware/bowls.

anyways, here's my first complaint/question:

I started getting even worse constipation in my time there (I've been having it off and on since going gluten-free), not that I cant go, its just REALLY hard and (sorry) but it comes out in little round balls. I have to strain to get it out or I can feel it just sitting there. kinda like when you geta stone in your shoe and keep walking, annoying!! Even when it doesnt come out in little round balls it is still very dry and not normal, sometimes with mucous. I've even had some blood from irritation. I eat a TON of fresh veggies and fruit and get plenty of fiber/water..ect.ect.. So I bought a stool softener it's this one phillips

the site says its gluten-free, but I have been having gas pains and lots of gas, but it doesnt smell like when I et gluten, its actually odorless :huh:

and moving on. I have ate a couple differant things in the past days. one was kraft ceasar dressing which contains dairy- so I know that botheres me a bit, but not horrible. My gas also seemed to get worse when I tries this ice cream: tutle mountain coconut milk ice cream. Has anyone had this before??? The culprits may be either potato flour or soybeanoil in the ingredients. It was SOOOOOO good though!!!, so I'm hoping my gas/gas pains are not from that! I just felt more gassy and constipated since staying at my moms, it just got really bad after I took the stool softener. So maybe its just a combination of new things I tried along with CC from her apt. grrrr and I have a pain in my head....

ok this is long enough

On a completely unrelated note.... Turtle Mountain has Gluten Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream!!!!!

Back on topic. The Turtle Mountain that you ate seems to be the coconut, and coconut can cause gurglies.


Positive Bloodwork 7/8/05

Inconclusive Biopsy 7/20/05

gluten-free since 7/23/05

Never felt better.

You know....I dont have this problem. But xylitol will give me "D". I wonder if you ate a little packlet of xylitol if that would help.......It isnt harmful. It is a non-digestible sugar alcohol. A lot of fiber is non-digestible too. So similar concept.

Some foods move through me faster than others. Okra is another one that gets things going.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

does regular coconut contain a lot of sulfites??? I eat jennies coconut macaroons all the time (made with sullfite free coconut) and have no problem. high sulfite foods like garlic cause me hell! even red wine....

is this an artificial sweetner? I've heard of it before but wasnt sure....

I refuse to put any artificial sweetner in my body. I dont even chew gum with it in it. mouthwash and toothpaste are the only exception since I dont really consume it lol.

so glad I'm not the only one!!!! lucky you have a doctor. I dont, trying to get one. its scary not having one as I feel there is something really off in my body. I've even been waking up in the morning with a coating in my mouth and sometimes a sour taste. I think all my problems are eeither starting in my stomach or are a hormonw thing since I havent been gettting regular periods either, if any.

xylitol is a natural alcohol sugar from either corn or birch. I believe birch is better. I dont eat corn, so I got the birch. Like Maple syrup comes from maple trees. Xylitol comes from Birch trees.
