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.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
