Tmi - Stool Issues
0

16 posts in this topic

Whenever I get glutened and after the gas and D mixed with C, I get either stool with undigested food or I will feel like I have to 'go' and I get a mucus or oily discharge. The mucus/discharge can go on for a few days. When the mucus/ discharge is over, the pain subsides and I am ok until the next glutening.

Sometimes the mucus/oily discharge is mixed with bits of undigested food. What is this all about? It's really bothering me. Is this part of the fat malabsorbtion or something to do with gluten damaging the mucus layer?

I'd ask my doc but I don't go back until the end of Jan.

thanks - MO

Thanks for the reply. I can't stand the mucus b/c it's the symptom that seems to linger the most for me. I guess it's part of celiac and I should just try to ignore it. :wacko:

Before I went gluten-free, it was like that every day for me. I think it is malabsorption.

I had that mucus a lot when I was suffering from C, before I went gluten free

My understanding is the gut makes lots of mucus normally to help with the movement of chyme (food). When you are glutened it makes some sense that more mucus would be produced a a reaction to the damage. Or maybe the gut makes moo-cuss?

I ate carrots once and got a nice thin layer of floating transparent tissue and moss-cuss in the returns. I think it was a layer of surface gut material destroyed by the immune reaction. You know how when you get a cut or damage to your skin it can make fluid? I think the mucus is the normal response for the gut cells that compares to that. It's just what they do normally but they do more of it when damaged. 2 cents on the way out please, (Lucy said it wuz ok). :)

Hi LJ,

I am fine, that incident was couple years ago. Learned me not to eat carrots anymore tho. I used to buy bags of them and eat them as snacks. No more. Bugs-bunny can keep 'em. :)

A toast sounds good. I went to Christmas dinner last night and had a couple hard ciders. So for New Year's I'll probably try something else besides water.

Fish oil might be something to try. Maybe I can find some at the vitamin store. I suppose you keep it in the cooler so it won't go rancid right?

Now, vitamins C is not something you should have. How can you get scurvy when we have all those delicious pink grapefruit to eat in the stores? :)

Sorry for the thread detour Mo!

I seem to remember you asking something similar before?

If your intestines were damaged so much by 1 glutening, and the mucus and indigestion were a sign of serious villi damage, then the indigestion and mucus would last as long as it takes to repair the damage. Since villi take quite awhile to heal fully, months (although healing commenses asap so I've read, but it's not a fast process), I wouldn't think the mucus and indigestion are from the villous damage. Celiac's fat malabsorption is due to damaged villi also.

I think pooing mucus is much like a runny nose when you've got a flu or cold. The immune system makes stuff trying to fight off the infection or something and then you have to get rid of it.

The only time I saw this mucus was the first day I reintroduced gluten in preparation for my celiac testing. I had been gluten-free 6 weeks and the first thing I ate led to all the things you describe. I ate the same dish the last day of my 6 week gluten reintroduction period, and saw nothing similar to it.

I agree this could easily be the mucous lining of your small intestine being swept out of your system by the glutening.

That being said, I asked my GI and he was all like "I see mucous all the time and it could mean anything." It must suck to be a GI doctor.

As for me, that's the *only* time I saw mucous, so I'm sticking with my theory.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
