    Hi! I’ve had T1D for 16 years. I was diagnosed later in life(my 30’s). I have not heard about neuropathy of the bowels. Yet, I am curious. I see a gastroenterologist and have been told that I have IBS with constipation. How can one be tested for neuropathy of the bowels? All of the treatments for IBS have been too aggressive. Thank you for sharing your experience.

      probably the same thing I have they gave it a different name because there is not much to be found on my diagnosis I would ask I had problems with Linzess for a long time but over time it all worked out

        I know my system has slowed down. I tried Linzess and had such terrible diarrhea! So I stopped using that. Maybe I will try it again. I’m glad that it worked for you 🙂
