Hi all,

My DD has been gluten-free for 3 yrs. We have prior to and still currently are dealing with excess stool in the colon. We have been told to treat with Miralax and he occasional weekend of Exlax "clean out" . The Dr's keep saying its safe to treat her with miralax daily but I don't feel good about it.  Anyways, to add to her problems she has been seeing a Endo for 5 months and is now on the medication Levothyroxine.   

 

I have read that constipation can be a symptom of Hashimoto's disease (which is what she tested positive for ) 

 

ANyone with similar experience ?

 

I am hoping the poor kid can get some respite from the miralax etc..

miralax  is  a  safe  non habit  forming medication... its  things  like  "EXLAX"  &  things  like  that  , they  are  habit  forming &  one  can become  addicted  so to  speak. Plus  they  can  make  a  weak  colon  stop  trying all together..I  would  stay  clear  of those  drugs.... another  one  is  mineral oil  which is  a  safe one. But  again for  daily use  I  would  stick to miralax  &  maybe  add in  Alig

Levothyroxine   may not  take  care of  her  thyroid  but  mainstream  docs  will only  prescribe  the  synthyroid  or  generic  drug.... sad  in my book.... I  almost  fied  on  that  stuff....I now  take  whole  glandular  thyroid  med  &  got my life  back....after  seven years  of  hell....

Like Mamaw, I did not get any better on Synthroid. I had to see an "alternative" doctor to get Erfa's Thyroid (like Armour) and I finally feel better.  My C did improve slightly while on Synthroid, but I was also starting the gluten-free diet at the time so I'm not sure what effect that had on it. Erfa's Thyroid straightened it out (almost) completely for me.

    • I had horrific leg pains when celiac first reared its ugly head in my childhood. My Mom used to try warm compresses but I don''t remember them helping. Don't know if they were from vitamin deficiencies or not but I had them off and on throughout childhood. I would get cramps in adulthood almost anywhere. My back was the worst. The cramping did resolve gluten free. Don't know if that will be the case for you daughter though. One last thought I know many places are having a very warm summer. Dehydration can also cause muscle cramps so if your dealing with a lot of heat make sure she is weel hydrated. I hope she is feeling much better soon. Do get a full panel done on yourself and all first degree relatives. Testing is advised even if folks don't seem to have symptoms.
    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
    • It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it.  With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative.  But in looking at previous blood tests-she had a cbc run about a year ago that showed that her MCV was high and there was no mention of it.  Makes me wonder if that along with a deficiency in her vitamin D levels can be attributed to celiac.    On a side note--she has been experiencing lots of leg pain-to the point where she is sometimes in tears because they hurt so much!  She had her endocrinologist appointment yesterday and mentioned that and he didn't think that this could be attributed to the celiac.  Is that true?  As I stated before she is having the biopsy this Tuesday but I think she is hoping that this is a symptom of the celiac so that it will resolve going gluten-free.  Any thoughts?
