Acid Smelling Stools

3 posts in this topic

Yes I know its a horrid thing to discuss.

I was initially diagnosed withLPR due to an incessant dry cough and voice problems.The camera down my throat showed swollen vocal bits and pieces( cant remember the name).

I have an acidy taste at the back of my throat.foul smelling acidy loose stools,gassy tummy, a coated tongue.

I stopped using a mouthwash and cut out dairy and gluten - probably not 100 per cent but nigh on.The cough stopped and I felt a whole lot better.Then I got my appt through with a new gastro consultant and they want to do a biopsy to test for celiac.I was told to eat gluten for 4-6 weeks prior to test and now my acid stools and breath are back.It almost tastes like those old fashioned pear drop sweets.

I had a 24 ph test for acid reflux and it came back all clear.All my acid suppressing medications had no effect so I stopped taking them.

Any ideas or comments would be greatly received as I know my friends and family just do not realise how ill this makes me feel on a daily basis.

Thanks for listening .

i will be horrid with you!

my stools are ACRID. I think I know what you mean, although not loose but very acidic smelling..as well, i have a crazy coated tongue that feels SO weird and also like it has been hit with some acid. i have never described it that way and my Dr has no idea why although i am very new to this, so maybe stopping the gluten will help.

i went for the biopsy because i wanted something defnite (but I really have no GI symptoms, more neuro, so I wanted to know if we should be looking for something else)...if you need the answers, go for the testing. if you feel better without it and don't want a formal diagnosis, skip it. Did you have any blood testing done for the antibodies?

Yes but unfortunately I had decided off my own back to cut out dairy and gluten and been doing so for 6 weeks prior to my gastro appt.I saw a registrar initially who sent me for the blood test and i explained I had been dieting gluten free for 6 weeks and she said no matter go ahead with the test but I see now that this will give a false result.

Yes I agree as soon as I have had the biopsyon 27th September I am off the gluten irrespective of the results.

I found an interesting sight - have a look - www.cryingoverspiltmilk.co.nz

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
