"stool Avoidance"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A friend has a 4 year old daughter who has had bowel issues for a couple of years. They were told by a pediatric GI that she has "Stool Avoidance" and impacted stools. I've heard of this before, but am wondering if it could be related to Celiac. Don't want to bother my friend with any information that wouldn't be helpful, but he wants his daughter to get better. Is anyone familiar with this? Anyone's child been dx'd with it? Or is totally non-related?

Maybe dumb question but is that the same as constipation?

This caught my eye because my son was recently diagnosed with encopresis, which is basically constipation which leads to a blockage of stool in the colon, only allowing watery diarrhea to pass by. This is usually caused by stool avoidence and is usually seen in children who are potty trained or training. we had my son seen for his chronic diarrhea. He GI originally thought that ds had celiac, but his blood test and biopsy were negative so he concluded that he doesn't.

I'm not really sure if these things are related or not. I know that people who have celiac can have constipation, so I guess it's possible.

Sorry I'm not more help. Good luck to your friend.

I have been wondering the same thing. My 5 year old nephew has that same problem. His blood test said no celiac but we all know how that really doesn't mean a thing.

My dd usually gets constipation with celiac disease, I have the opposite reaction. A few times she's had very loose stools as well. She's also had a UTI which sometimes can be brought on by stool holding. She took Murilax for 3 months which helped tremendiously. Now we only use it when she needs it, maybe once or twice a week. Dd's Dr. said it was important for her to use during the time that her body was healing. When she becomes consitpated she tears and it becomes very painful to go. The Murilax helped her go without tearing etc.

Going gluten-free has made all the difference in the world. :) We also avoid dairy and casein which has also helped fight againist constipation. We make homemade fruit slushies with fruit and sparkeling mineral water. You can also add stevia or honey to sweeten it up. We do all kinds of fruit but her Dr. suggested blueberries and watermelon to help her go. Also, we don't do bananas very much because they tend to have the opposite reaction.

Hope she feels better. :)
