The fecal fat stool test assesses the amount of fat (lipids) in a person's stool sample. This test can help determine if a person's body is not properly absorbing dietary fat. Excess fat in the stool can be indicative of a digestive disorder or malabsorption. Malabsorption can be caused by several conditions such as infections in the intestines, pancreatic cancer, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis, blockage of the bile duct, and gallbladder cancer. This test is usually ordered when a person has symptoms such as chronic diarrhea or loose, fatty stools.

A diet including 100 grams of fat per day for 3 days prior to collection and during the collection period is recommended.
