Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Fecal Fat"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Fecal fat was analyzed according to van de Kamer et al.

Fecal Fat

  1. Thus, total fecal fat is a representation of dietary intake, digestion and absorption.
  2. The fecal fat test measures the amount of fat in the stool, and the percentage of dietary fat that is not taken in by the body.
  3. A 72-hour stool collection may be ordered for fecal fat measurement; increased fecal fat in the stool collected indicates malabsorption.
  4. Concentration and output of fecal fat was poorly correlated, indicating that fecal output is required for diagnosing intestinal malabsorption.
  5. Fecal fat Fecal fat is a marker of fat in a stool sample.

Fat Excretion

  1. In all subjects, fecal fat excretion, fecal elastase-1 (E1) concentration and basal and secretin-stimulated serum lipase concentration were measured.
  2. Laxative withdrawal and 88 Fine KD, Fordtran JS. The effect of diarrhea on fecal fat excretion.
  3. Improvement of fecal fat excretion after addition of omeprazole to pancrease in cystic fibrosis is related to residual exocrine function of the pancreas.

Stool

  1. Results: The sensitivity and specificity for the detection of steatorrhea by the spot stool qualitative fecal fat were 78 and 70%, respectively.
  2. The fecal fat test measures the amount of fat in the stool, and the percentage of dietary fat that is not taken in by the body.

Pancreatic Function

  1. Several noninvasive, indirect tests of pancreatic function are also available, including fecal fat analysis, fecal chymotrypsin, and fecal elastase. (Web site)
  2. Exocrine pancreatic function was assessed by the indirect para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) test and fecal fat excretion. (Web site)
  3. For the determination of pancreatic function in CF-PI patients, other tests (e.g., fecal fat excretion, coefficient of fat absorption) can be used.

Test

  1. In medicine, a fecal fat test is a diagnostic test for fat malabsorption conditions (also referred to as steatorrhea).
  2. Sudan stain of fecal fat: new insight into an old test.
  3. It is concluded that the 72-h fecal fat determination is not specific for documenting triglyceride (fat) malabsorption.
  4. Shmerling DH, Forrer JCW, Prader A. Fecal fat and nitrogen in healthy children and in children with malabsorption or maldigestion.
  5. Fecal fat balance studies and both breath tests were performed in the same 3-d period.

Pancreatitis

  1. Fecal fat concentration in the cholangiopancreatography in patients with pancreatitis.
  2. Severe chronic pancreatitis and its correlation with chemically measured fecal fat output.

Quantitative

  1. Quantitative fecal fat tests measure and report an amount of fat.
  2. All stools had quantitative, qualitative, and acid steatocrit analyses performed for fecal fat.
  3. Fine, KD, Ogunji, F. A new method of quantitative fecal fat microscopy and its correlation with chemically measured fecal fat output.

Fatty

  1. Fecal fat test shows fatty stools.
  2. The 72-h fecal fat determination is a measure of the total fatty acid content after a specimen is saponified.

Stools

  1. All stools had quantitative, qualitative, and acid steatocrit analyses performed for fecal fat.

Excretion

  1. In all subjects, fecal fat excretion, fecal elastase-1 (E1) concentration and basal and secretin-stimulated serum lipase concentration were measured.
  2. High dietary calcium intakes also increases excretion of fecal fat and may increase core body temperature.

Steatorrhea

  1. Definitions of how much fecal fat constitutes steatorrhea have not been standardized.
  2. This measurement of the total output of fecal fat per 24 hours in a three-day specimen is the most reliable test for steatorrhea.
