Whenever I slack off on my enzymes, bad things happen. Every meal, or anytime I'm eating out/at someone's house. I don't usually take them with breakfast but probably should...

 

We definitely develop more poo knowledge than the average person. I always check it out to make sure everything's looking ok.

Anyway, a friend of mine one took a photo of her poo cause it was such a success. Only a Celiac would appreaciate that!

Also, my man keeps teasing me with this silly "Peeegggyyy, she likes to poooooo" song. I really don't know why I put up with him...

I do the same thing.  The automatic flushers at work really irritate me.  By the time you turn around to inspect your output it's wisked away forever...  :angry:

OK - so today I am experiencing steatorrhea for the first time outside of floaters. Today I have the oil droplets at the surface of the water. I also am having severe diarreha. it feels like I have been glutened (cramps, nausea, frequent bathroom trips) but I cannot pinpoint what could have done it. I can only blame the extra fat I have had in my diet the past few days. And I have been very good this weekend taking my digestive enzymes with my meals (and it contains the lipase so I know it covers fat). Am I freaking out over nothing or should I be concerned?

WOW, I have had this for the past two days and have been wondering what the heck it is...I will be waiting to hear what people have to say. The oil, the explosive (sorry) D. I have been gluten-free and DF but am now thinking it might be corn that's the problem. Do you eat corn products?

Moose, I think you are okay with the oily stuff... as long as it is short-lasting I wouldn't look too much into it.

the love on here is mutual.  ;)

laughter is crucial to healing, reduces stress, knocks down inflammatory cytokines and promotes good circulation.

 

EVERYONE...please believe me...unless you are suffering  serious steatorrhea,  and weak and suffering from continuous expulsions,

you are probably still just healing.

 

DRINK water, hydrate, take probiotics. 

I do......... and I have spectacular poo.

 

there, I said it.  -_-  I had horrible D or C my entire life. Not anymore.!!!

 

Give it time.

 

Omg, I reveal so much to you all ... for the greater good. I am the good poo poster child  :lol:

lol......kind of scary what we have become so proud of, isn't it? 

 

After my mom went G F (3 months after my DX) I insisted she take probiotics. I thought I'd get resistance, but she did it. 

That poor woman had either  "omygawdIhaveotgettothepottyrightnow!!" episodes or she pooped out marbles her entire life.

 

She called me one morning about 3 months later to report her victory. 

It was a ....... OPP.

 

What's that you ask? that 's "mom-speak" for a one piece poop.

 

whooot whoot. so proud, Ma.

Having grown up on a farm, we refer to those as "Nanny Berries".  Why?  A "Nanny" is a mother goat (we had goats) and goats naturally poop out small, perfectly circular, berry-sized terds, in a little perfect pile.  They look like dark brown berries... so "Nanny Berries".   :)
