Pale yellow, greasy, foul-smelling stool: malabsorption of fat due to pancreatic insufficiency, as seen with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, cystic fibrosis, celiac disease.

Keep a food diary and document everything that goes in your mouth. Check your meds, vitamins, shampoos, lipstick, shaving cream and lotions.

Yep. I've been having this problem since January. Sometimes it is just loose but many times I have D, there is undigested fat and and very malodorous. There has been times I have barely made it to the bathroom. In Feb. I had a gallbladder ultrasound (normal) and Hida scan (suboptimal but above the sugical thrrshold), some stool testing in March for parasites/pathogens (normal), and a repeat EGD and biopsy in April (esophagitis, gastritis, stomach ulcer but normal small biopsy this time). I went dairy free thinking it was causing my symptoms and also cracked down on potential CC. I got worse. I definately am not digesting fats well. Avocados and the almond milk will really set me off as well as anything greasy or fried. On my last visit I tried a trial of welchol to control the diarrhea. It helped some but not enough to care. The GI also suggested that I may have a pancreas problem because of the fat in the stool. I'm supposed to call back and let him know about the welchol. I also decided on my own to try some digestive enzymes. They helped more than the welchol (although I was not able to take it exactly as prescribed because of the drug interacting with my thyroid meds), but I ran out and I'm waiting on them in the mail. I think the reason I'm not digesting fats is because of my dysfunctional gallbladder. However the doctor said he thinks I would be hard pressed to find a surgeon to take it out when it is working at 48% when the threshold for surgery is 35%. He did say he likes to see the function at least 50%. I do have RUQ discomfort, but never severe pain. It's more of a pinching/pulling sensation that is very annoying. I'm going to go really low fat for awhile and see how I react. If I still have problems I may go in for more testing/surgical consult. I'm getting very discouraged by all this, tired and a sore butt! :lol:

i have tried the food diary, but i cannot figure out what the culprit is...about how long do you think it takes to eat something and then have it reek havoc on your system? for example...today was a bad day...yellow, frothy and very, very loose and went 3 times after lunch within a two hour time span....thoughts?

As you travel through the gluten free lifestyle, you will notice that your reaction time will vary. That makes it very difficult to pin point and issue. And sometimes, you never know. And everyone is different. You will learn your own clock, once you are healed.

You may be one who reacts to the slightest bit of cross contamination...at home, work or elsewhere.

I have been taking Nature's Sourse Absorbaid. I found these at my local health food store. I did not want one with the betaine HCL or pepsin because I did not know if it would aggrivate my ulcer. So I got this one instead and it seemed to help some. At least the watery stool was gone. I still have soft yellow stool, but at least I'm not going all the time. I may look for one that has ox bile in it and see if that helps any better. I'll wait until I finish this new bottle. I'm also going to ask the doctor if if the betaine or pepsin would hurt me to take now since most of the digestive enzymes supplements with ox bile have the betaine or pepsin in it.

    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Following my official diagnosis of celiac disease I went gluten free many weeks ago, but I have noticed absolutely no improvement in my health since.  I still get a plethora of muscle aches and pains almost constantly, I still feel tired, I still get lots of headaches and I still feel very foggy.  Is this normal? I see health sites suggesting some symptoms go within a few days of the diet while others take a bit longer but I have had no improvement whatsoever.  Thanks
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      According to endoscopy report, i'm parasites free. but i have high IgG to candida albican, which may indicate recent or current infection with it. i spoke with my doctor, his reply was like forget about candida or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth, they only appear in immunocompromised patients! 
    • Italian pasta
      Hi! You will have no problems to eat safe in Italy! Food labeling is much better in Europe  (you can fully rely on labels, they list everything). The only wheat celiacs can have is gluten free wheat starch, used in Schär products and many swedish ones. As italian cuisine is based on pasta and bread, there are a lot of gluten free options, most restaurants are aware of celiacs. All kids age 6 in Italy are screened for celiac. You will find lots of options on glutenfreeroads.com   Enjoy your trip!!
    • Continued Symptoms
      Since she is back on the charts her doctor is generally pleased with her condition. I don't know that I've made it clear enough how persistent and ongoing some of this is for her. She improved so dramatically when we made her gluten free, but there are these couple of nagging issues. I'm beginning to wonder if she has some other food sensitivity... Regarding the speech - we homeschool, will the public schools evaluate her anyway?
    • Italian pasta
      My wife and I are traveling to Italy in October and will be eating authentic food over there obviously. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and extremely celiac. I have heard rumors that people that are celiac don't have the reaction to the wheat pasta in Italy due to the processing of the wheat is different than that of the states. I am curious how much truth to this there is and if anyone has had any experience with this issue or recommendations as to what to avoid. I've never been outside the states and am fearful that I won't be able to eat over there haha

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
