Hi Ayu,


Human feces or feces consists of various components and one of the components of feces is fat. However, the presence of excessive fat in the stool or during bowel movements is not a normal condition and is medically known as Steatorrhea.


This condition indicates a disturbance in fat absorption. The following are some medical conditions that can cause these complaints:

Fat intolerance
Disorders of the bile glands, for example, bile duct obstruction (cholelithiasis) or bile infection (cholecystitis).
Disorders of the pancreas such as inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
Whipple's disease, is a disease caused by a bacterial infection that results in impaired fat absorption
celiac disease

Crohn's disease
cystic fibrosis

etc

Because the complaint is accompanied by fever and dizziness, it is most likely that the condition is caused by inflammation or infection in the body. If this is the case, then you should check with your doctor to determine the cause of your complaint so that you receive appropriate treatment according to the condition that underlies the complaint.


Your doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, perform a physical examination or supporting examinations such as stool analysis, abdominal ultrasound or examination of tolerance tests for certain foodstuffs.


If the complaint is caused by a bacterial infection, the doctor can prescribe antibiotics according to the bacteria causing it and drugs according to the symptoms you are experiencing. If it is caused by fat intolerance, the doctor will advise you to reduce fat consumption and recommend a good diet.


Here are suggestions for you:

Reduce daily fat consumption to help with complaints
Increase consumption of water and fiber (derived from fruits and vegetables)
Do a healthy lifestyle
Get enough rest
Immediately consult a doctor if the complaint persists or worsens
