    I have a sister with Down Syndrome that also experiences bowel problems. Her primary doctor recommended buying an over the counter probiotic and it helped A LOT. Also after having a endoscopy done, the test showed she had Celiac's disease which was a surprise to us. If your teenager has frequent bowel issues, consider finding out if food that contain gluten may give him/her an upset stomach.
