Just last week, I took my son for his 8 year well check and needed to discuss some constipation issues with her that have not gotten better since his last visit on the topic. We took some blood from him to rule out any liver or other issues, but feel we know his real problem. When he was a toddler he hated to go #2 anywhere but home. He would hold it all day at daycare and even through kindergarten this was an issue. In those years he trained his colon to stay enlarged and now it is to the point where his muscles that trigger your body that you have to go are inactive right now. The Xray showed a large colon and a lot of stool. So we have to retrain his gut. Not the most glamorous topic to discuss, but apparently this is not uncommon.
In this regimen I will have him on some OTC meds to keep him emptying and some Mylanta daily for 6 months. Diet is a huge key. I am even to stop his multivitamin because the iron affects him so much and can cause him to back up. He is to go light on pasta, bananas, apples, applesauce and standard white bread. I am starting some supplements (Calcium and Vitamin D) and watching the types of bread and grain he does eat. He loves pastas and breads and now have to choose wisely like only whole grains and low on wheat and glutens for now. The day before his Dr appointment a supply of this BFree bread arrived. I went home and read even more and it is great for him! It does not have the wheat, has real grains and no gluten. He is so excited.
Anthony’s favorite after school and before soccer practice snack is sandwiches or roll ups. He thought he wasn’t going to be able to have any before practice anymore. That type of snack holds his hunger so well until the late dinners on practice night. Because BFree is OK for his diet, he had his first turkey and cheese roll up on BFree Quinoa & Chia Seed wrap. He loved it!
