Green Poop

My daughter still having problems. She has to remain on miralax or she goes right back to being constapated. Also she constantly has really green poop. Do I need to bring the green poop up to Gastro?

For my son green poop is usually a sign that his system is off so I would bring it up. When Josh's system is off, we see runny neon green poop. I think there is often a cross contanimation issue going on but sometimes I've felt like everything has been done right and we've still had green poop.

Was she checked for impaction? When my son was first diagnosed, we had to clear up an impaction before he could make any progress with diahrea/constipation issues? He had 10-12 slight diahrea bm's daily when he was impacted. He was also on miralax but we haven't needed it for 10 months.

My son was dx last December and went from a short, skinny 7 year old wearning size 5 slim to a medium to tall, somewhat pudgy 8 year old wearning size 10.

That's interesting. My son has had green poops for years. I have been asking his pediatrician about it for a long time, and I never seem to get any answers. I had him evaluated for celiac last month, and so far his blood tests are normal, but I was just diagnosed and carry DQ2, and I just know that at the very least he's gluten intolerant. I really want to start him on a gluten free diet, but we have to go back and see Dr. Fasano at University of Maryland in December for followup to see if his constipation issues have resolved with miralax. So, I want to wait and see what he suggests.

He'll be 4 next week. At his three year appointment, he weighed 30.4 lbs. In September, he weighed 31.7 lbs. When he stepped on my scale the other morning he was 32.0. He's constantly complaining about his tummy hurting. He's very short for his age. He is very moody. In addition to being green, his poops are very bulky. He also gets canker sores. I know something is going on...

In contrast, my two year old has never had green poop (except once when he was breastfeeding) and is already 29 lbs. AND he is considered to be in the 50th percentile. So he's not even a very big two year old.

I'm confused about my daughter's green poop, too. I'm glad you brought this up! She's been on a gluten-free diet for a few weeks, and we're still seeing the neon green poop. She recently had a KUB X-Ray and she definitely has stool backed up in her system. She's been on miralax on two separate occasions (a week each time), and she still has the back-up. I'm not sure what to do--what length of time has everyone else been on prescribed to take miralax??

Are you feeding your kiddos anything grape or artificial grape flavored? Grape Kool-aid and grape juice can make the poop a green color, as can some of the other artificial colors. You might try switching to Apple based products and not deep purple artificial colored items for a couple of days.

I am so glad you brought up the "grape" artificial coloring. My daughter, who has Celiac has suffered on and off with green poop for years, she is now 10. When talking to my mother-in-law a few years ago, she mentioned to me that my husband had green poop as a child after eating anything with artificial grape flavoring (jelly, jam, kool-aid, grape flavored medicine, etc...). When I asked my husband about this, who is not Celiac, he confirmed the story and said he still reacts that way to grape flavoring. I am as guilty as the next to blame every intestional reaction to gluten but could you child just be reacting to an artificial coloring? I hope you find an answer soon- Please excuse any spelling errors, I could not get my spell check to work :lol:

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      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,
