... Thanks for your reply, too ALF772. Actually, I have been having some bowel issues as well, mostly diarrhea, but it seems to fluctuate from day to day. I cut out all caffeine products, so it's probably not that, but I guess it's going to be a trial and error thing to determine what all else is causing it. I'm still planning on seeing a gastroenterologist.

At the time, one of the changes I made to my diet was to eat... (5 replies)
