Causes And Treatment Of Fatty Stools?
Dear Doctor, I am 16 years old I suspect I have worms, today I practice worm eggs px at school using my feces. Then the result did not show any worms but the Fat content in the feces was positive. My question is, what are the possibilities in its digestion? I don’t really have a hard time getting on her BB … even though I eat a lot. But because I am a very active child I did not suspect anything. Is it dangerous? Then how about the next treatment without going to the hospital? Thx before
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Fatty bowel movements medically called steatorrhea, can be caused by the following conditions:
Parasitic infection giardia lamblia incomplete absorption of fat in the intestine (malabsorption) Whipple's disease Celiac disease (because the intestines can't digest gluten) Disorders of the bile (inflammation or gallstones)
To ascertain the cause, you should get checked out so that you can do a physical examination and if necessary support examinations such as routine stool checks by a general practitioner. If the cause is known, of course, the doctor will provide the right management for your condition. If necessary, the doctor will refer you to an internal medicine doctor for further tracking.
Some of the things you need to do are:
Limit daily fat consumption Wash hands before eating Avoid foods that have the potential to experience contamination, such as old food or drinks, foods that are not served hygienically. disease) avoid all foods that contain gluten
That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
