What Does Fatty Stool Look Like?
0

7 posts in this topic

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.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      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.
