White Foamy Stool

    
Asked by shabbatshalom (Female; 29 ) on Sat 28, Aug 2010 09:15pm

I have been having white foamy mucuousy stools for a couple of days now. I feel fine otherwise (maybe more tired?) and will suddenly get a small gas pain and when I go to the bathroom there is just white light fluffy stuff. Nothing hard, nothing colored. No blood and no pain. What can this be? Thanks.

Dear Shabbatshalom white foamy mucousy stool is mainly due to over production of mucus in the large intestine. It may occur due to pancreatitis pancreatic cancer; liver or bile duct disease; crohn's disease,celiac disease, food poisoning ,tuberculosis; candida overgrowth in the large intestine; on taking antacids etc. You should get a stool test, liver function test, test for pancreatic enzymes, done for diagnosis. Get in touch with a doctor. Take care.
