Tmi - Stool Issues

16 posts in this topic

Whenever I get glutened and after the gas and D mixed with C, I get either stool with undigested food or I will feel like I have to 'go' and I get a mucus or oily discharge. The mucus/discharge can go on for a few days. When the mucus/ discharge is over, the pain subsides and I am ok until the next glutening.

Sometimes the mucus/oily discharge is mixed with bits of undigested food. What is this all about? It's really bothering me. Is this part of the fat malabsorbtion or something to do with gluten damaging the mucus layer?

I'd ask my doc but I don't go back until the end of Jan.

thanks - MO

Thanks for the reply. I can't stand the mucus b/c it's the symptom that seems to linger the most for me. I guess it's part of celiac and I should just try to ignore it. :wacko:

Before I went gluten-free, it was like that every day for me. I think it is malabsorption.

My understanding is the gut makes lots of mucus normally to help with the movement of chyme (food). When you are glutened it makes some sense that more mucus would be produced a a reaction to the damage. Or maybe the gut makes moo-cuss?

I ate carrots once and got a nice thin layer of floating transparent tissue and moss-cuss in the returns. I think it was a layer of surface gut material destroyed by the immune reaction. You know how when you get a cut or damage to your skin it can make fluid? I think the mucus is the normal response for the gut cells that compares to that. It's just what they do normally but they do more of it when damaged. 2 cents on the way out please, (Lucy said it wuz ok). :)

Hi LJ,

I am fine, that incident was couple years ago. Learned me not to eat carrots anymore tho. I used to buy bags of them and eat them as snacks. No more. Bugs-bunny can keep 'em. :)

A toast sounds good. I went to Christmas dinner last night and had a couple hard ciders. So for New Year's I'll probably try something else besides water.

Fish oil might be something to try. Maybe I can find some at the vitamin store. I suppose you keep it in the cooler so it won't go rancid right?

Now, vitamins C is not something you should have. How can you get scurvy when we have all those delicious pink grapefruit to eat in the stores? :)

Sorry for the thread detour Mo!

I seem to remember you asking something similar before?

If your intestines were damaged so much by 1 glutening, and the mucus and indigestion were a sign of serious villi damage, then the indigestion and mucus would last as long as it takes to repair the damage. Since villi take quite awhile to heal fully, months (although healing commenses asap so I've read, but it's not a fast process), I wouldn't think the mucus and indigestion are from the villous damage. Celiac's fat malabsorption is due to damaged villi also.

I think pooing mucus is much like a runny nose when you've got a flu or cold. The immune system makes stuff trying to fight off the infection or something and then you have to get rid of it.

The only time I saw this mucus was the first day I reintroduced gluten in preparation for my celiac testing. I had been gluten-free 6 weeks and the first thing I ate led to all the things you describe. I ate the same dish the last day of my 6 week gluten reintroduction period, and saw nothing similar to it.

I agree this could easily be the mucous lining of your small intestine being swept out of your system by the glutening.

That being said, I asked my GI and he was all like "I see mucous all the time and it could mean anything." It must suck to be a GI doctor.

As for me, that's the *only* time I saw mucous, so I'm sticking with my theory.
