  1. holy cow! i was super excited to gluten myself with everything i've been missing, but only for a few days... i don't think i can keep it up for 3 months. it's only day 2 and i've yet to have a bowel movement (my biggest symptom) thank you for the advice. i should probably just assume and accept.
  2. I have been eating gluten-free for a few months now, but want to confirm (or try to) my celiac status. For how many days should I eat gluten before taking the test? THANK YOU!!!
  3. my 6.5 year old daughter has struggled with constipation for over a year, and it has only gotten worse since we took her off gluten, dairy and soy. she has had many episodes with fecal impaction and the requisite clean-outs have been horrible. the leaking described in the above posts is exactly what happens to her... i was extremely reluctant to start, but since taking ex-lax every day, she is finally regular. it's really terrible that she cannot go without it, but i don't know what else to do. if she would eat veggies, i'm sure she would improve but she just won't.
