Hey AlwaysRosie and jhmom,
Thanks for your reponses. My thyroid is fine. The constipation is caused by the MS. I have multiple spinal lesions and they have caused some paralysis in my small intestine. Things just move really slowly and too much water is absorbed. It is thought that there are some proteins in gluten that may cause the t-cells to go on the move causing more damage in MS. It is just a theory but I have no way of knowing if this is something that may help me.
I take freakish amounts of fiber both supplemental and through fruit and veggies. So going off gluten won't make things worse for me. I was just wondering what made you think you were better off without gluten. Like jhmom said, joint pain, fatigue or any other reasonably measurable results. I am sure there is no easy answer here for me lol.
This is a nice board! Thanks again for your help.
