Mucous in stool...again

Can it be normal for children to have mucous in their stool for no apparant reason (even if a big glob comes out), or is this usually indicative of something, and can she have cf without being profoundly ill all the time.

Re: Mucous in stool...again

Usually when I have mucous in my stool it is when my irritable bowel is acting up. I usually have a low-grade, chronic pain in my bowels, and eating red meat, dairy and hard to digest things makes me have gas and chronic constipation and the afore mentioned mucous. I treat it by having a low-fat, high-fiber diet and limiting fats and sweets. I stick to fish and chicken and when it was really bad had to go to an all vegetarian and soy diet. My children have already shown signs of it as well, at 6 and 9 years of age. Hope it helps.

Sometimes if the child has congestion and swallows a lot of the snot it will appear in the stool. Like if the child had a cold, allergies, or sinus problems.

A systematic yeast infection can also cause this. I am battling that myself.

If she is having muccus in her stool you should have her see a peds gastrointerologist as this is one of the signs of cf and you do not have to be chronically ill appearing to have a mild case of it but it needs to be taken seriously as even a mild case can develop worse if not treated. I am not trying to scare you but I would definitly get it checked out.
