Pale yellow, greasy, foul-smelling stool: malabsorption of fat due to pancreatic insufficiency, as seen with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, cystic fibrosis, celiac disease.

Keep a food diary and document everything that goes in your mouth. Check your meds, vitamins, shampoos, lipstick, shaving cream and lotions.

Yep. I've been having this problem since January. Sometimes it is just loose but many times I have D, there is undigested fat and and very malodorous. There has been times I have barely made it to the bathroom. In Feb. I had a gallbladder ultrasound (normal) and Hida scan (suboptimal but above the sugical thrrshold), some stool testing in March for parasites/pathogens (normal), and a repeat EGD and biopsy in April (esophagitis, gastritis, stomach ulcer but normal small biopsy this time). I went dairy free thinking it was causing my symptoms and also cracked down on potential CC. I got worse. I definately am not digesting fats well. Avocados and the almond milk will really set me off as well as anything greasy or fried. On my last visit I tried a trial of welchol to control the diarrhea. It helped some but not enough to care. The GI also suggested that I may have a pancreas problem because of the fat in the stool. I'm supposed to call back and let him know about the welchol. I also decided on my own to try some digestive enzymes. They helped more than the welchol (although I was not able to take it exactly as prescribed because of the drug interacting with my thyroid meds), but I ran out and I'm waiting on them in the mail. I think the reason I'm not digesting fats is because of my dysfunctional gallbladder. However the doctor said he thinks I would be hard pressed to find a surgeon to take it out when it is working at 48% when the threshold for surgery is 35%. He did say he likes to see the function at least 50%. I do have RUQ discomfort, but never severe pain. It's more of a pinching/pulling sensation that is very annoying. I'm going to go really low fat for awhile and see how I react. If I still have problems I may go in for more testing/surgical consult. I'm getting very discouraged by all this, tired and a sore butt! :lol:

i have tried the food diary, but i cannot figure out what the culprit is...about how long do you think it takes to eat something and then have it reek havoc on your system? for example...today was a bad day...yellow, frothy and very, very loose and went 3 times after lunch within a two hour time span....thoughts?

As you travel through the gluten free lifestyle, you will notice that your reaction time will vary. That makes it very difficult to pin point and issue. And sometimes, you never know. And everyone is different. You will learn your own clock, once you are healed.

You may be one who reacts to the slightest bit of cross contamination...at home, work or elsewhere.

I have been taking Nature's Sourse Absorbaid. I found these at my local health food store. I did not want one with the betaine HCL or pepsin because I did not know if it would aggrivate my ulcer. So I got this one instead and it seemed to help some. At least the watery stool was gone. I still have soft yellow stool, but at least I'm not going all the time. I may look for one that has ox bile in it and see if that helps any better. I'll wait until I finish this new bottle. I'm also going to ask the doctor if if the betaine or pepsin would hurt me to take now since most of the digestive enzymes supplements with ox bile have the betaine or pepsin in it.

    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come!
