User :   Hello. I have a question about my 3 year old daughter
Doctor :   hi dr xxxxxx here
User :   Her, poop is very dark, very sticky (like mud) and it sticks to her butt and she only goes a little at a time.
User :   this happens a lot, I have suspected a gluten sensitivity
User :   What does this sound like to you?
Doctor :   it depends on what else r the symptoms as well as the stool examination
User :   well, otherwise she seems to be healthy except she does say that sometimes her tummy hurts
Doctor :   it cannot be determined only on the basis of appearence of the stool
User :   ok. So I would have to get a stool sample and take it to her doctor?
Doctor :   yes thats right
User :   Ok. Thank you.
Doctor :   you r welcome
User :   What symptom could this be of though?
User :   Does anything come right to your mind?
User :   I know blueberries cause poop to be like this sometimes.
User :   but she has this sometimes even without blueberries
Doctor :   it does not need to be gluten sensitivity itself
