  1. Bad Constipation Help

    Seeking some advice. Been constipated off and on for 2 months. First tried the usual, prunes, figs, gluten-free granola, prune juice, etc. Didn't help. Then I tried Citrucel... not a cure but at least I was going. Finally just wanted to be cleaned out and did an enema. But after that constipated again. I went to my doctor and he said Miralax. I swear it made it worse. Now not going at all for the past 4 days. My friend who is nurse suggested Ducolax stool softner. I took yesterday and nothing. What else should I do? I work out and eat gluten-free oatmeal everyday. I also eat fruit and salad for lunch. I don't eat a lot of cheese. This has never happened before. Any suggestions? I am contemplating another enema.
  2. Soy?

    When I was first not aware of my soy allergy, the cranberry pills made me sick. Most cranberry pills contain soy. Avoid them if they don't say soy free. Also, Rice Chex may be gluten free, but their not soy free. Rice Chex have vitamins which most certainly contain soy. Honey, unless it is locally sources is from China... soy again. Your peanut butter is a legume which you should also be avoiding, but some peanut butters contain soy also (hydrogenated vegetable oils). Hope this helps, but basically you ate soy all day that's why you're sick.
  3. Hi all, Wondering if anyone who has soy allergy has done any alternative to drinking glucola for glucose tolerance test. I refused it when I was pregnant because it contains brominated vegetable oil which contains soy. I have an analphylaxis reaction with soy, so that is out of the question. It appears that no doctors are aware/educated on this because when I questioned my doc, she claimed there was no soy in the drink. I read online about eating jelly beans but I'm not sure the lab would approve of that. Any information would be appreciated. thanks, Fran
