Constipation

I wanted to pass along my story about sucralose...
I have had uncontrollable urges for candy and sweets...
My body was just going crazy!
I was finally able to trace these symptoms...
Great pain, cramps, constipation, and diarrhea...
I was eating Blue Bunny ice cream with Splenda in it...
I then became constipated...
Never in my life had I been so constipated...

Is there any link to splenda and severe constipation? I have been using splenda for a few years - in coffee, baking and other fruit drinks and yogurt. I have now developed a severe constipation problem and wondering if this could be associated with an increasd use of splenda.

I feel so sorry for so many, who begin "dieting" and find they have a problem with constipation.

Splenda is the culprit in my body. I am so sensative to Splenda, Sucralose, Maltodextrin, that I can tell, within hours, if I have mistakenly gotten the sweetener. It is in sugar free Jello, ice creams, some granola bars, and even breat mints affect me. There is no doubt in my mind that Splenda causes me constipation.

As I view the Weight Watchers site, at any given time, there are people who start the plan and experience constipation, that previously, had never had this kind of problem. Sadly, they treat the symptoms, rather than the source of the problem, because they just don't know.
