Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

:blink: ugh this one is a little gross, but im curious to know what the fatty deposits in stool are supposed to look like, i am a suspected celiac, my blood work was negative but had been gluten-free for 2 weeks when they ran it so now im on the diet and my doc says this will be the best indicator. however i had to see a dermatologist for my hives and the rash that i get on my hands and feet (horribly itchy want to use the cheeze grater) so i went off the diet for about 4 days so i would "look sick" ugh it took about 3 days for me to feel the full effects allthough my tummy was sooooo sore after the first day, now i have been back on my diet since yesterday but am still having lots of bm's of course i expect i will for a couple of more days, but it looks like rice krispys in my stools anyone had this? i would love an answere on this because i am getting used to seeing chunks of food (i have absorbtion issues) but this one is a little gross. thanks so much

Hi Nadine, great things we get tp speak about. Not sure if you ever had responses, or updates on your symptoms, but I will add my own experiences and see if this adds to what we know.

I have been gluten-free for nearly 3 months and have noticed changes in stools over the past 4 weeks. Suprisingly I am still not digesting properly, but the color has changed from greenish to brown, less bulky, less floating, and less frequent (now a BM every 2 days, from one per day). What suprises me is that there is still fat droplets on the water surface, and I have not yet recovered weight. I can only assume that the 4-6 months for the intestinal villi to recover is still underway and although I have seen improvements in BM, there are clear signs that healing is not yet complete. Anyone else wnat to add to this distasteful yet important subject?


Gluten free June 2008, candida/yeast free Nov 2007, dairy free 2001, dust mite avoiding 1997.

Cold water urticaria, DH.

My first thought was "parasite" too. Get checked!


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Hi, I have also noticed small shaped, oval, tiny things that resemble jalapenos seeds or rice crispies. I have been noticing them 10 years back. I even had my stool examined but they couldn't find any parasite or ova, so the doctor gave me a trial of antiparasite medication but after that I just kept seeing the in my stool. One day I tried to squeeze one of them to see what was inside and it looked like dried fat (I'm sorry for telling you this but I had to know what these things were). I guess these could be fat that got trapped in some kind of intestine tissue that was dehydrated by water absortion however it is always recommended to have it checked by your doctor. Please do so and then tell us the results. ;)

Could be parasites, my thought too.

Also it is 1-2 years healing for adults...


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

The last 6 months I have found hard rice Krispy like blobs in my stools, some days my stools are so loose bright yellow up to 5 times per day and others dark and hard to pass, I did a coeliac test and it cam back negative. I do suffer from non alcoholic fatty liver disease and googled that and was scared stiff, I know wheat, bread biscuits,pasta and such upset my digestion I wondered if anyone could throw some light on my symptoms .....I feel really lethargic and tired some days and have abdominal bloating and pain ......thank you in advance x

What does your doctor say? What did they find those blobs  to actually be when they sent them to a lab?  Sounds like you need to see a doctor.

They have done a colonoscopy and said I have diverticulosis I've recently had a ct scan abdomen as I had cancer three years ago but that was clear, it's feels like cramp around my liver and paracetamol don't take the pain away I'm at a loss what to do next as I'm beginning to think people think I'm a hypochondriac ......I'm not the pain and blood in my stools are real, I'll see my G/P Monday and ask for a referral to gastro x
