Large Bowel Movements

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone knows. Can large bowel movements (ie, the kind that plug the toilet every time) be a symptom? I know diarrhea/constipation but my husband brought the quantity up. My son's going through diagnosis and no one on either side of the family has ever been diagnosed so at the moment it's a guessing game who it came from (we'll be tested, just dealing with our oldest at the moment). So of course we both see signs of it in our own families.

I really don't know the answer to that but my daughter when she was small used to pass bowel movements like that...

We were perplexed, but her Pediatrician never seemed concerned. Now my sister her Aunt was diagnosed with

Celiac and I have gone Gluten Free due to symptoms of chronic constipation...

I have ordered testing from Enterolabs, after testing negative for Celiac through traditional blood Celiac Panels.

Well, evidently my husbands mother used to plug up the toilet "as much as her sons" for years and then she was diagnosed with Celiac years later. Unfortunately my husbands best friend is the plunger, but thus far his Celiac tests have been negative. I think he is gluten intolerant though; he bloats up like Santa Claus after he eats pasta, bread, etc.

One of my daughters also used to pass big bm's until she went gluten free in June.

That poor guy!!!!! :lol::lol::lol:

I think you meant he was the plugger, but your slip of the fingers has given the best laugh I have had in a long time.

Back on topic, the guy should get tested as his symptoms do sound like he could be one of us.
