RE: [IP] Constipation

Ruth, I think with diabetes, especially for me anyway if I run a high
streak, I got a problem. My understanding is that is dehydration. 
I do the stool softeners and most of the time it works ok.
I ran into a bout with it this past vacation. Its my fault i
Let it go and it caught up with me. Not a pleasant thing.

If I had an ongoing and persistent problem I would check with my PCP, a
persistent problem can be something beyong constipation. I'm not sending
Up a red flag, but check it out.

Dear IP members,
I tried to come up with a more delicate heading for this subject, but
then decided that it might get deleted before reading--sorry!  I've had
Type 1 for 28 years and have always had problems with constipation.
Now, it may not be at all connected with diabetes, but it is a real
problem with me.  I seriously thought I was going to have to go to the
ER last night as a result.  I go over and over my diet in my head; and,
although I do like cheese, I also ate a ton of vegetables last week and
at least my normal fruit servings (and I even took stool softeners).  

I have gotten so much help from the list in the past.  I was wondering
if anyone has insight into this problem.  Thanks in advance!

Type 1 since 1975; pumping 12/01
