I have had bloating and fatigue for years. My GI doctor told me I should try to go gluten free. I have been for two months. I feel a little better but I have noticed that my stools are really soft. They are formed but not "normal" like they use to be. Has anybody else had this experience? Does any one know if this is a result of giving up gluten? Is it just my intestines healing? Thanks.

I had the opposite reaction to eliminating gluten - stools were soft trending to mush until I gave up the wheat etc.

You might try taking psyllium to bulk up the stool?
