What do white spots in stool mean if there are no other symptoms? Is there cause for concern?

No: It is not feasible to know what the white spots are without examining the material. However, if you do not have any symptoms it is not likely to be any thing serious.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Constipation, 120 ALT liver enzymes, stomach pains, black and white spots in stool for 3 months. I'm a 30 yr/old male. Doc doesn't seem concerned. Help?

Constipation, 120 ALT liver enzymes, stomach pains, black and white spots in stool for 3 months. I'm a 30 yr/old male. Doc doesn't seem concerned. Help?

Get checked: Constipation, abdominal pain, black and white spots in the stool are very vague non-specific symptoms. Alt of 120 is concerning as it is high. If you drink alcohol, it may be related to that, so stop and get it rechecked. If that's not the case, i'd press on and have your doc do further work up - first recheck it. If still elevated, i'd go with hepatitis panel, liver ultrasound, etc. ...Read more

Stool paler than normal with mucus and white spots. Should I be worried? Had liver/pancreas blood tests done recently, normal results.

Stool paler than normal with mucus and white spots. Should I be worried? Had liver/pancreas blood tests done recently, normal results.

Stop worrying: If you feel generally well, are maintaining your weight, and can take part successfully in sports, then there's no reason to concern yourself with the vagaries of stool color and complexion. You describe some abdominal pain and you do need to find out whether this should be managed as functional bowel disease, or whether you have gallstones, or if there's any evidence it may be something else. ...Read more
