I'm glad you asked this question cuz I was curious what exactly fatty stool was too. I think this is the perfect forum for asking this question so I don't think you should be embarrassed for asking it. I'll be watching to see if anyone posts a reply cuz I'd like to know too. I just thought I'd let you know you weren't the only one wondering. :)

This is a very COMMON topic here and it generates no surprise other than an occasional...."Oh Yeah, that's me".

Fatty stools float with perhaps some skim on the water. Your body is not able at the time to absorb fat and it is released and it just takes the direct route.

To make you feel more comfortable, there is not one amongst us that does not turn around a look.

The bottom (pun) line is if it sinks, it's a good day and if it floats, more time or diligence is required.

Steatorrea is generally seen as the typical "classic" celiac stool. It is described as a grey, pale or a yellowish color. It tends to be frothy and or floaty. It can be in the form of diarrhea or solid bulky stools. It is almost always foul smelling. I could see it sorta looking like rice krispies.

re: floating stools

My GI laughed when I mentioned "fat & floating stools". He said something about misinformation on the internet and needing to have the stool samples analyzed (which we did). I'm not the expert but have done some research (ironically on the internet).

"One wrong idea is that floating stools are caused by an increase in the fat content of the stool. In fact, it is increased gas levels in the stool that make it less dense and allow it to float."

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003128.htm

and:

"Another cause of floating stools is malabsorption. More than two weeks of diarrhea with floating stools is often seen in people suffering from malabsorption, a dysfunction in the GI tract that affects the body's ability to digest and absorb fat and other types of foods.

Increased levels of nutrients in the stool (which have not been absorbed by the GI tract) are supplied to the normal bacteria that live in the gut, which in turn produce more gas. This results in more gas-rich stools that float.

Common Causes:

Dietary changes, diarrhea, and malabsorption can cause floating stools. Most causes are benign and will resolve when the infection ends or the bacteria in the GI tract adjust to the changes in your diet.

Patients with the following diseases may also have stool that floats: .....

.....Gluten-induced enteropathy (sprue or celiac disease) "

When I was a little girl (in the 70's) we had neighbor kids that had trouble with pin worms. The doctor told their mother to place scotch tape over their anus when they went to bed or to look at their bottoms when they were sleeping, using a flash light. It seems pin worms like to come out at night. Gross. But she liked to tell about it. So, I would think they could look like rice crispies. But, these kids had a very bad itching problem....

Perhaps it could be some undigested food? Do you eat rice crispy type cereal?

Just my two cents.

:blink: im pretty sure that its not pin worm i looked on the internet about it and i have no itching or anything else down there, and the only time that this seems to happen is when i eat bread, or cookies stuff with wheat and gluten in it. once im back on the diet it stops. plus no one else in the house gets this but me and pinworms is pretty contagious from what i understand. my kids get D quite a bit and my son is autistic so we are figuring that there is some kind of digestive issue in the house. my youngest (14months) just had her BM's tested for any kind of parasites or bugs as she gets quite a bit of D when she is on dairy, and all her stuff came back clean. my celiac blood work came back negative (1.1 and it needs to be a 4.0 for a pos, but i was on the diet for 2 weeks at that point) i've ordered my enterole lab kit so we will see what that has to say. im curious about the dairy one as 2 of my kids have had issues with dairy allready.

thanks for all the input.

hi its me again, just went to the bathroom (again ug!) now my bathroom stinks! ugh this is such an awful topic, im thinking that its undigested food, my bm's are an brown w/slight orange tint, but there is a slight film on top of the water after i go, and i do eat a lot of rice made products as that is what most of the celiac products are made with rather than normal flour. im also still eating dairy quite a bit in an effort to get some protien and wondering if this is what is in my bm's maybe. pinworms are larger than what i have going on im pretty sure, and i have no irritaion or itching on my bumb, which i understand i would have quite a bit of at night. my hubby said his mom used to deworm the family once a year, as we live in the country and have fun things growing out here! but im thinking its food or something.

nadine :P
