 obsessedwithhealth - Thu Oct 30, 2008 10:52 pm

Hello i am having a intolerable bad smelling stools from past two years along with very frequent diahherea like inconsistent stools though i left it untreated when i googled about it recently i was feared to see various serious medical conditions associated with it i am normal in weight 6.0 feet 65kgs....

I had a regular stomach pains 7 years ago for 2years now stomach pain has not returned from past 5 years but very very bad smelling stool is dozing me off any idea what it could be?

Many Thanks

User avatar Hello --

You need to be tested for possible celiac disease, an intolerance for gluten in the diet. One of the cardinal symptoms of this is foul-smelling stool, along with diarrhea, greasy-looking or fatty stool, bloating and vague general abdominal discomfort. This would all seem to fit with your complaint, and while there is no cure, it can be managed very well by diet changes alone.

I hope this is helpful to you. Good luck with this and please follow up with us as needed.
