Longing to be regular
I'm posting on behalf of an elderly friend who has a son with Down's syndrome in his 50's. He swings dramatically between being completely constipated to having chronic diarrohea. He is believed to have early onset Altzheimer's, although this hasn't been formally diagnosed yet, and my friend is wondering whether this is a sign of things to come. Is anyone else experiencing similar problems and, if so, can you suggest a solution? Remedies for constipation simply cause more severe diarrohea and conversely Imodium bungs him up for days so she's reluctant to try either. She's at her wits end.
