    I heard they were suppose to sink. I had to change my diet due to floating stools and no i wasnt gassy but being gassy can cause floating stools.

      What sort of things were you eating before that you have changed. Has your new eating made a difference to your stools. Yes I'm gassy I must admit since I've had all my probs going on in pain so much round left rib arms into and fight across lower back an acid reducing tab does nothing

    Stool should sink. If it floats there is too much fat in it, and therefore too much in your diet.
