Thanks for your question. I would like to have more details from you. The lumps or yellow spots gives a greasy and smelly picture? you are taking any medications right now like antacids? any abdominal pain or yellow colour of eyes? loss of appetite? feeling lack of energy? your age and gender? how long you are passing this?

Thanks for your details. I would say that the yellow spots or lumps in stool are due to fat malabsorption and this term is also called steatorrhea. The important thing is we have to investigate the reason for it. Tab. Zoton do also effect pancreas and there is a possibility that this fat malabsorption is due to that. I will recommend few tests for you.

 

Abdominal scan

stool analysis for fat

serum Lipase

 

I will also advise you to visit your doctor for complete examination and evaluation.

 

I wish you best of luck and keep in touch

 

Regards
