In brief: See his doctor
In addition to fiber supplements and probiotic supplements, a 76 year old with altered bowel habits should undergo a colonoscopy to exclude other issues.
Celiac testing is also warranted.

The predominant symptoms like diarrhea cramps constipation are the result of autonomic nervous system instability. Pts like you may benefit from a metabolically directed approach check out mdwellnessmd.Com.
