    Question IBD, Coconut oil, stools and TMI

    Hello, I am on R1P3D13 and am maintaining well. I have IBD and have introduced coconut oil to my diet. I eat it pretty liberally, probably like 6 tablespoons a day. Lately I have noticed that when I have a BM there is oil floating on the water in the toilet bowl. Is this the coconut oil passing through? Does it mean I am not absorbing it? Has anyone else noticed this with their CO intake?

    My health issues include diabetes, however my A1c went from 8.9 before the HCG diet to 6.2 after, just had it tested. I also have IBD and am menopausal. I am also showing signs of sjogrens syndrome which my doctor is testing me for. So, as you can see I have had a lot of inflammatory conditions and I am trying to navigate all these issues with a healing diet etc.

    If the case is that I am not absorbing the CO, should I continue to take it? Any advice or shared experience would be appreciated, thank you for your time.

    What you are describing is medically called steatorrhea...and my iPad won't let me spell it right, LOL. For some reason or reasons, you aren't absorbing the fat. You may be absorbing some, but not all, and it sounds like you are eating quite alot of it. Your IBS can be the cause, if you've had your gall bladder removed, the lack of bile salts can cause it too. I'd cut back on the CO, see if it improves. Also mention it to your IBS doctor. He might want to look into some other enzyme deficiencies.

    A couple of years back I use to have the same problem with fish oil. Turns out I didn't have enough HCL produced in my stomach to digest stuff. I was put on HCL capsules and everything returned to normal. Hope that helps!

    I just had a colonoscopy last week and my GI doc was thrilled to tell me that he could see no signs of the ulcerative colitis and the biopsy reports all mucosa normal! The coconut oil must be helping to heal my gut, especially since my previous colonoscopy a year and half ago showed significant disease in the sigmoid and cecum. Needless to say I am thrilled. I just started a second round round of HCG and am a bit worried about stopping the CO for fear my IBD will flare again. We'll see what happens! Thanks for the reply and I will check into HCL.
