: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...

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
