    laxative or stool softener

    Does anyone know of a laxative or stool softener than is free of propylene glycol & polypropylene glycol? I have kidney disease & can't take miralax (which is also propylene glydol) When I ask my Dr what to take I'm told Miralax so you see I need help. Prune juice is also out of the question. Any advice is very much appreciated.

    My transit time is very slow. I've tried probiotics & fibre supplements even olive oil etc. My IBS is so bad the foods that would help the constipation gives me colon cramps to the point of passing out. I also have multiple food allergies. I can't take anything with sodium because of kidney disease. I seem to be out of options. I am trying to eat low fodmap & IBS diet. Thanks for suggestions.
