What could the root fibers like thing in my feces be since I also have coeliac disease ?

Hi, I just passed a small clump that had a large 4cm flat string coming out. at the tip it seem to break up into fibres like a root of a plant. Curious to see if it was parasites I broke the clump to find more root fibre like... something. It was all connected as two seperate bits. Is this just something undigested or could it be parasites? I have never had parasites so not sure. Also I have Coeliac Disease to can t go off parasite symptoms cause I get those symptoms anyways. Cheers

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It is possible it could be a tapeworm or roundworm. Better to get your stool tested for parasites. Are you having symptoms of diarrhea, dysentry. Drink plenty of water to flush out parasites if present. Coeliac disease causes watery diarrhoea usually. Kindly consult with a Doctor and let him/her examine you properly and get adequate tests done and get you treated in time.
