Possible celiac disease. Stools light, why? What are the floating seeds?

possible celiac disease , no insurance for medical tests. Stools have been light and puffy and float (almost like they ve been whipped with an egg beater). starting a few days ago, I have white/off white chunks that appear almost see thru and rubbery, not moving. also have floating seed like pods (almost like solid white sunflower kernel seeds) could this be chunks of intestine?

Hello, fuzzyganttperfrction,
I am sorry to hearthat you cannot afford to have blood tests.
There are a lot of free clinics available, some through religious
organizayions such as churches etc. I am posiptive you can find
one in your neighborhood.Doctors volunteer their services and
they enjoy helping people like you.
Be thwt as it may, the simplest thing you can do is go on a very
strict"Gluten FreeDiet".The fact that you are using internet, I am
sure you can look up Celiac disease foundation website for
guidance about the diet.I can assure you that you are not seeing
pieces of intestine in your stool.
Wish you the very best .

dietary guidelines.
Hope you will follow through with my suggestions.
