We Can't Seem To Get Color/consistency Together ! in Parents, Friends and Loved Ones of Celiacs Posted December 24, 2006 · Report to Admin Relax. Ryan's poop sounds perfectly normal. Poop is what gets left over after your body has taken everything it can out of your food. His poop should be relatively consistent based on his diet (ie, meatloaf, carrots, potatoes and applesauce should produce similar kinds of poop every time he eats them), but it probably won't ever be "normal" consistency. This is okay. Ryan's body will always work slightly differently from everyone else - and his poop will change colour, smell, and consistency depending on lots of things (his diet, stress levels, his immune system, exercise, hormones, etc). It will probably take about 6 months from the last glutening for Ryan's intestines to completely heal, but this may not result in completely identical poops - if you think about it, you'll probably realise that your poops aren't completely consistent. . .you just never look at yours. Monitoring Ryan's poop is just a rule of thumb to make sure he's relatively healthy - generally there should be less coming out than there was going in. If you're worried, talk to his pediatrician the next time you're in, but so long as Ryan continues to gain weight in his age/height bracket and stays fairly healthy, there's no need to worry about the kinds of poops you are describing. (If it makes you feel better, I am completely gluten-free for six years, and my poops range approximately along the lines of what you describe for Ryan, and my team of docs has given me a completely clean bill of health.) I'm so used to closely scrutinizing what comes out of the kid that I've nominated myself "official poop patrol" lol. I always thought the yellow poops were a bad sign ?
