    could be a few things. fatty stool is a sign of malabsorption, could be an issue with liver, gallbladder, pancreas, you could have a gi infection. there are a number of issues, you would need to go doctors. what other symptoms do you have, age? etc

    I have had the same issue since Jan 2017 along with upper left abdominal pains. I have had many many scans, blood tests, and endoscopy with nothing to note but Gastritis and low Amalayse. I have found however, only 1 solution which I discovered the past two days has given me non fatty floating stool two days in a row, for the first time since Jan 2017. I have been taking a liquid antacid that contains the following ingredients:

    Aluminum Hydroxide - 400mg

    Magnesium Hydroxide - 400mg

    Simethicone - 40mg

    Regular tablets haven't done a thing, and attempts at probiotics, vitamin regiments, and dietary changes (literally dozens of different ones) have not worked. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the good results will continue and after I finish this bottle that I will remain symptom free. Perhaps may just be severe gastritis causing malabsorption? We shall see.

    It could be any number of things. See your doctor and ask to be referred to a GI specialist to check for conditions like gastritis, h pylori and IBS.
