Mucous - When Does It End?
0

7 posts in this topic

I have been gluten-free for about 6 months now and am still passing this stuff! I take that as a sign that my intestines are not fully healed yet. I am feeling quite a bit better -tons of symptoms seeming to be related to malnutrion are gone. I am assuming my intestines are partially healed, but not all the way? Anyone have any insight or links?

thanks in advance!

Have you eliminated dairy products yet? That's a major source of mucous - which you may already know ;) If so, please disregard this post and good luck finding out what's causing your troubles!

My GI told me that mucous is a sign of problems. It takes a year to heal most people, a recent stufy indicated.

Passing mucous in my stools is also a sign for me that I need to take my antihistamines. It means that my allergies are on the prowl.

From studying in another field, I have learned that when the body is experiencing allergies (food, pollen, anything) that the mucous membranes overproduce. Sounds obvious - snot runs if you get an allergic-causing item near your nose - but there are other mucous-related parts of your body besides your nose (such as breastmilk being produced by one of these....), and of course anything in your mouth/nose you can swallow and it could just pass through (like with a teething mucousy baby, you can often see the mucous in the stool...)

So in all likelihood, it just means your body is still in an allergic state (to gluten or something else).

TMI?

This is sooo helpful! thank you all. I have a suspicion I am allergic to other things as well. I'll have to make an appointment with an allergist soon!

Merika and Dessa,

Thank you so much!! I've been having problem with mucus in stool for several days and was really concerned. I've never been able to figure it out when it happens and Never thought of the allergy connection. The pollens are horrible here at this time of year and I've had to be outside more than usual. Thanks again. granny
