Mucous - When Does It End?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten-free for about 6 months now and am still passing this stuff! I take that as a sign that my intestines are not fully healed yet. I am feeling quite a bit better -tons of symptoms seeming to be related to malnutrion are gone. I am assuming my intestines are partially healed, but not all the way? Anyone have any insight or links?

thanks in advance!

Have you eliminated dairy products yet? That's a major source of mucous - which you may already know ;) If so, please disregard this post and good luck finding out what's causing your troubles!

My GI told me that mucous is a sign of problems. It takes a year to heal most people, a recent stufy indicated.

Passing mucous in my stools is also a sign for me that I need to take my antihistamines. It means that my allergies are on the prowl.

From studying in another field, I have learned that when the body is experiencing allergies (food, pollen, anything) that the mucous membranes overproduce. Sounds obvious - snot runs if you get an allergic-causing item near your nose - but there are other mucous-related parts of your body besides your nose (such as breastmilk being produced by one of these....), and of course anything in your mouth/nose you can swallow and it could just pass through (like with a teething mucousy baby, you can often see the mucous in the stool...)

So in all likelihood, it just means your body is still in an allergic state (to gluten or something else).

TMI?

This is sooo helpful! thank you all. I have a suspicion I am allergic to other things as well. I'll have to make an appointment with an allergist soon!

Merika and Dessa,

Thank you so much!! I've been having problem with mucus in stool for several days and was really concerned. I've never been able to figure it out when it happens and Never thought of the allergy connection. The pollens are horrible here at this time of year and I've had to be outside more than usual. Thanks again. granny

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
