To be honest, I'm glad this thread got started. A serious problem around here!

Much of the time, I'm at 7. Due in part to side effects of some drugs I'm on.

As usual, I seem to live in backwards world and my stomach dumps constantly. During my last test for gastroparesis, I processed the irradiated food in 15 minutes, not 45 or an hour.

Not uncommon for me to experience five or six bowel movements a day. If not that, then days on end without elimination.

I've heard, by the way, that the biggest topic of conversation at nursing homes is bowel movements - good grief!

And then, in terms of David's hypothesis, there's the perennial question of corn, which we all know never appears to get processed, but is nevertheless carby and produces high glucose.

Maybe not because you should also have less bacteria on LC/HF as well as much less gas. Those bacteria thrive mostly on fiber and to a lesser degree regular starches which for one reason or another failed to get digested higher up and make it to the LI where they can't be digested but only fed to the resident bacteria.

I assume you have done all the real allergy testing right? No celiac disease/dairy intolerance....you've rule out IBS/Chrons etc etc etc? What about increasing your fat intake. Tends to slow bowels down. Good luck!

Oh yes, but thank you! Even so, my wife went through a period during which she insisted I eat gluten free, no dairy, etc. I eat fat, of course, but will attempt your advice.

My gastroenterologist seems generally unconcerned over the matter at this point. As he's a terrific doc and also my primary care guy, I live with it.
