What Does Fatty Stool Look Like?

What you described sounds like mucus. I still see that when I get glutened. Before I stopped eating gluten, I also saw little white blobs that looked like corn... only I wasn't eating corn. I assume that was fat. My stool was also greasy and difficult to flush.

Sorry bout this but ... it sticks to the sides and looks greasy/sticky. Every time I have gluten - or corn/rice for that matter!

Maybe this could be a poo analysis forum. Or we could start another topic just called something like, "pooperama". If not on a celiac site, where else?
I got a blood test, but unfortunately where I live they don't do the full panel. They just test for one thing, and if you test positive then they test for one more. My doctor said she's requested more in the past and she just gets a letter back from the lab saying, "no". But I had already decided to go gluten-free, regardless of the test results, and see what happens. And she's going to send me to a gastroenterologist either way. I hope it's not the same doctor that she requested to do a colonoscopy after an infection I had. He didn't do the procedure because he said it sounded like food-poisoning, so it was unnecessary. Fair enough, but he then said I might get irritable bowel, which is why I didn't question my digestive system problems for so long. And a friend of mine went to the same doctor for a stomach scope, and he said she didn't need the scope because her pain was due to her divorce ten years earlier! She knew it wasn't that, of course, and insisted. So he did it, and she had a bleeding ulcer.
Well, I'm optimistic about the diet. It seems to fit.
Happy New Year! (hopefully, a happy poo-year!)

when I went 100% gluten-free, I was excreting mucus for a couple days. just mucus, nothing else. It was weird. like my intestines were coated with mucus and when the gluten went away, my intestines decided to shed it all and get on with life. ha. then my digestion slowed down a lot and I could actually 'hold it' until I had time to get to the bathroom, not like the dire emergencies I'd lived with for years and gotten used to. Amazing huh?
