Question Do you think a "gluten free" diet would help alleviate constipation??

Hi,
I've been suffering from constipation for a long time and read about some of the negative effects of consuming gluten and wheat products. My question is, did anyone have any success from eliminating gluten from their diet? And if constipation was your problem, were you able to go again? THanks alot!

I have a problem with gluten. It's in practially all our foods! It's used to thicken soups and flavor things. Arghy if you have bad intestines.

I do have tons of constipation. I can eat certain types of wheat and still go. Try for instance a bread made of potato flour or eggs. It didn't bind me up. I think gluten must be linked to fiber and that always has given me problems.

Gluten-free bread is okay, doesn't taste as good as the normal stuff. Also you can't get a good grilled cheese (lactose free cheese) with it. You could also try cutting out lactose from your diet. I have horrible bouts of constipation when I eat milk.

Good luck!

Kat
