Food choices: Intestinal gas and constipation suggest idiosyncratic intolerances of certain foods. The simple answer is to stop milk products with concern for lactose intolerance and to eat a small amount of oatmeal each morning to counteract constipation. A gastrointestinal specialist can discern if there is an underlying intestinal tissue disorder.
