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...

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
