Fatty Deposits In Stool? Rice Krispy Looking? Sorry For The Grossness
0

7 posts in this topic

:blink: ugh this one is a little gross, but im curious to know what the fatty deposits in stool are supposed to look like, i am a suspected celiac, my blood work was negative but had been gluten-free for 2 weeks when they ran it so now im on the diet and my doc says this will be the best indicator. however i had to see a dermatologist for my hives and the rash that i get on my hands and feet (horribly itchy want to use the cheeze grater) so i went off the diet for about 4 days so i would "look sick" ugh it took about 3 days for me to feel the full effects allthough my tummy was sooooo sore after the first day, now i have been back on my diet since yesterday but am still having lots of bm's of course i expect i will for a couple of more days, but it looks like rice krispys in my stools anyone had this? i would love an answere on this because i am getting used to seeing chunks of food (i have absorbtion issues) but this one is a little gross. thanks so much

Hi Nadine, great things we get tp speak about. Not sure if you ever had responses, or updates on your symptoms, but I will add my own experiences and see if this adds to what we know.

I have been gluten-free for nearly 3 months and have noticed changes in stools over the past 4 weeks. Suprisingly I am still not digesting properly, but the color has changed from greenish to brown, less bulky, less floating, and less frequent (now a BM every 2 days, from one per day). What suprises me is that there is still fat droplets on the water surface, and I have not yet recovered weight. I can only assume that the 4-6 months for the intestinal villi to recover is still underway and although I have seen improvements in BM, there are clear signs that healing is not yet complete. Anyone else wnat to add to this distasteful yet important subject?

Anything that looks like rice crispies in a stool might be a parasite, eggs would be my guess. You'd better go see your doctor about that.

Fat in a stool is probably going to be invisible to the naked eye because your body heat would melt it.

My first thought was "parasite" too. Get checked!

Hi, I have also noticed small shaped, oval, tiny things that resemble jalapenos seeds or rice crispies. I have been noticing them 10 years back. I even had my stool examined but they couldn't find any parasite or ova, so the doctor gave me a trial of antiparasite medication but after that I just kept seeing the in my stool. One day I tried to squeeze one of them to see what was inside and it looked like dried fat (I'm sorry for telling you this but I had to know what these things were). I guess these could be fat that got trapped in some kind of intestine tissue that was dehydrated by water absortion however it is always recommended to have it checked by your doctor. Please do so and then tell us the results. ;)

Could be parasites, my thought too.

Also it is 1-2 years healing for adults...

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
