I want to get a celiac panel done, so I'm writing a list of symptoms for my doctor. Since I don't compare my pooh to that of others, I'm not sure what's normal. Sometimes I have white "clouds" attached to the outside of the stool, and floating in the toilet. I was wondering if that is fatty stool, or if it's normal or something else.

Just my personal experience :ph34r:

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. :unsure: I assume that was fat. My stool was also greasy and difficult to flush.

I was wondering too, but yours doesn't sound like mine. Maybe we need a poo analysis forum!

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

Thanks, you guys!

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!)

yeah sounds like mucus. fatty stools look like someone coated them with oil and they're super sticky. they look greasy. oily.

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?

I have a pooy question for all of you. I think my 19 mo DD has celiac disease. I question her BM's. They very very stinky, mustard yellow in color, look as if you sprinkled black pepper in, and last of all they look as if there are tiny marbles (very sm. brown balls ) mixed in. Could this be a celiac disease BM? My 6 yr. old DD was diagnosed ( with a scoping but neg bloodwork ) the end of Jan 2011. My 6yr old's BM's are also mustard yellow in color but no "peppery appearance." I hope someone will be able to help.
