    You said it, Hap!
    No more kisses for me.
    As they will forever
    Be associated with the potty.
    But all that aside,
    The Dude’s got the facts.
    Just be careful when you flush,
    ‘Cause there’s more in the stacks.

    I’m happy for you! There is lots of evidence that folks with celiac have gut dysbiosis, so those probiotics should help crowd out bad bugs and help add to the diversity in there. Unfortunately, for many of us it’s not that easy, because many with celiac and NCGS have microscopic colitis. You might too– have you had a colonoscopy with biopsies? We have to avoid a variety of food triggers (corn, soy, eggs, dairy, many GF grains, etc), NSAIDS and other drugs, and even some probiotics that can make us react.

    A word of caution about B-complex. Many people (especially caucasians) have gene mutations (You’ve heard of MTHFR?) that prevent us from being able to use folic acid. If you have 2 copies of one of these mutations, it can even mean folic acid is downright toxic for you. People with MTHFR mutations have trouble detoxing and need methylated forms of the B vitamins, so methylfolate instead of folic acid, and methylcobalamin for B12. You can find out your MTHFR status by ordering a 23&Me test for less than $100.

    Poetry in motion….. (or should I just say, with eye-roll, “Boys!!”?). A doctor once said that there are two kinds of people – those who look in the toilet afterwards, and those who don’t.

    That said, I’m glad you’re feeling better. I have been a huge fan of probiotics for many years due to yeast overgrowth tendencies (which my 2 kids seem to have inherited. And when I forgot to dole some out to my husband once for a few weeks, he started to complain of jock itch. Since we’re bein’ personal here…..).

    I am “running” to the store to get me some probiotics and B-Complex Dude (or should I say Doody?). Thanks for the tip. I go from one to the other. In other words, I am either so constipated that I don’t go for a week, or I have those darn Hershey squirts! Hopefully it will help either way! As I already take Folic acid daily for megaloblastic anemia (another Celiac problem—YAY…not!) B-Complex would probably do me a world of good!
    Thanks again Dude!

    On the advice of Gastro MD I started taking good quality Probiotic recently. Been gluten free for nine months , but still had gut issues. These probiotics are expensive, but worth every penny. What a difference it’s made in my life. Even my gut pain is gone.
    Started with Florastor a plant based yeast which is not affected by antibiotics ! Switched to Align, I take one pill a day. (No refrigeration needed for both )
    So far best price I’ve found for both is Costco

    Though I hate to admit it
    Stepping back from the booze…
    OK, maybe a nip or a drop
    Can banish the ooze.
