My dd4 has been on movicol for while to help with constipation and try and stop her having accidents. We have noticed that she seems more
constipated with bread and does a number 2 a day with cereal and milk. She intermittently complains her tummy hurts. Could she have a wheat or gluten issue or both? I am confused. Can she be tested at 4 by a gp?

Remove those from her diet and do a test. Try a week or two removing everything with wheat in - breads, cereals, check everything. There are wheat free alternatives use these. Use oat milk as an alternative or soya/rice etc. Then reintroduce one or the other not both. Keep a food diary and see what days are corresponding with the tummy pains.

All this will help you if you do need to go to GPS for tests as you have a good food history and yes they do test at pretty much any age.
