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

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
