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?

Anything that looks like rice crispies in a stool might be a parasite, eggs would be my guess. You'd better go see your doctor about that.

Fat in a stool is probably going to be invisible to the naked eye because your body heat would melt it.

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

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...

    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
