Hello:

Currently I have REAL FOODS, no allergy but too much constipation, KATE FARMS  is better but there is an allergy.  I have tried othes such as Liquid Hope and got sick.  Please tell me how do you feed yourselves, how do you stay healthy.  I weigh 84 lbs.  I appreciate any help you can give me.

I also experienced constipation.  Milk of Magnesia, suppositories, stool softeners help.  My doctor said eating fiber is very important for both constipation and diarrhea.  So I ate bran muffins.  I also put mineral oil in the feeding tube. Miserable experience but I am a 15 year survivor.  Hang in there.   Exercise is also valuable in getting bowels to move.  Best wishes.  You'll get through it.
