Darker Stools When Glutened?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone else has darker stools when glutened. Mine have never been light....they actually were a lot darker before going gluten free. And a lot of the time they don't float (sometimes they do though), but actually sink to the bottom of the toilet and stick there (hard to flush). I still feel a little strange talking about my BMs with people, but I don't know who else to ask. And I know you guys will understand ;)

My stools were never light. But they did stick to the side of the bowl. I think I saw somewhere something about fat malabsorption (therefore it ends up in your bowel movements) causing that, but I can't remember where I saw it. Mine aren't sticky anymore unless I'm glutened.

I'm still trying to figure this out too - Because my impression was that when i got glutened my stools were lighter (yellowish)... but lately I've been having clay-y (is that a word?) dark stools when I have GI distress. It could be dairy related rather than gluten, though (in my case)
