Celiac With Constipation

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I meet with my gastro doctor soon to discuss some blood test results I got back that may point towards Celiacs Disease. I am hoping to get sent in for a liver biopsy. I have been researching a lot about the disease and I have a lot of the symptoms. But one symptom I am questioning is diarreah. I do get bouts of diarreah but not as bad as I get chronic constipation with cramping. If I don't have severe diarreah is that a sign that perhaps I don't have Celiacs? I am often nauseas after meals with gas pain, but constantly have to take miralax,fiber supplements and even use suppositories to help with constipation problems. I want to be sure I have all the information I can before discussing all of this with my doctor. Thanks for any input.

Constipation is a common symptom, although not as common as diarrhea.

I did not suffer from diarrhea, but constipation and was diagnosed in December at the age of 32. God bless and hope you get answers!

You can have constipation with celiac disease.

Many of us have thyroid problems too, which can be a cause of constipation.

Its a common symptoms for sure, not sure why you would want a liver biopsy if the results are pointing towards Celiac?
