i have white poop?

Really?: White poop can be from barium tests; clay colored (pale)poop can be from bile blockage. Some antacids can cause white poop. Pale yellowish (foul smelling, oily) poop can be from fat malabsorption or maldigestion (pancreatic disease, celiac sprue).

Mucus with stool: Additional to dr. Heller's comments, "white poop" may reflect a coating of mucus. Patients often report to me seeing mucus as white stringy material on and/or in stool. Mucus is a colon lubricant, but when present in large volume it may signal problems with colon spasm (ie. Irritable bowel syndrome), partical obstruction, inection, and even sloughed colon lining due to a variety of diseases.
