Yet Another Question About Stool...

Recommended Posts

A few weeks after starting the gluten-free diet, I began getting a lot of clearish fluid in my stool (had mostly normal stool before gluten-free diet -- asymptotic except for DH). Best way to describe it is kind of like saliva. I've read several post on mucous in the stool -- this could possibly be mucous, but it seems a lot thinner than what I consider normal mucous. Anyone else have this? It's probably an indication of something ("everything comes down to poo", ya know). I've been keeping a food journal for months and doesn't seem to be related to anything....

We can figure out what's wrong with you by lookin' at your poo!"

I have had this mostly when I was eating gluten. SOmeties it would be with the stool, other times I would get the sensation to go and all that would come out was the mucous stuff, but like you said it is more like saliva, but thicker than water. I recently had this again while gluten free. it happens mostly wheni get constipated. I would really like to know what it is also! I'm almost thinking it is something our bodies make to protect the colon? especially in my case I was severly constipated, it literally was hard as a rock. I need to see a GI doc though becaue I also get blood from irritation...

ok I think I'm done with my poop descriptions LOL!

Now that you mention it, I get the saliva/mucous mostly during bouts of constipation as well. Interesting...

I'd forgotten about that . . . I used to get that quite often before I went gluten free, including the urge to go and there only being the mucus. Huh.


Gluten-free since April 2007.

Also dealing with Fibromyalgia, Depression, PCOS, PMDD, and Menopause, but otherwise extremely healthy. :)

Found out I have Adult ADD in January 2009.
