Stool

Steatocrit

A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 14.9 %.

The steatocrit is a measure of the amount of fat in faeces. Fat content is expressed as a percentage, derived from the volume of fatty layer by the volume of liquid-free faecal layer after centrifugation. It is a more convenient alternative to the 72 hour faecal fat test as it requires only a single stool sample. Steatorrhea, or fatty stool, occurs when there is too much fat in the stool. Stool or feces contain a mixture of undigested nutrients. These include proteins, fibers, and salts.

What does it mean if your Steatocrit result is too high?

An elevated steatocrit is indicative of fat malabsorption resulting in steatorrhea. This generally results from pancreatic exocrine insufficiency but can also occur with severe small bowel disease i.e. celiac disease, liver diseases such as Primary Biliary Cirrhosisor medications that inhibit fat absorption such as orlistat.
