I need to ask if anyone has experienced D that floats.... (I never thought I would ever be so nosy)#sorry# My husband says that is how his are, he wondered if this was common. I know in children it is a sign of lactose intorlence. SHRUG!!! I don't know. If you have any ideas pass them through. Thanks... kathy

I know that this can happen as a result of gas within it but I have also heard that it can be a result of not absorbing fat.Tim

As far as I know it's from gas. But not absorbing fat makes sense also. You might want to do a search on this. Hope others can be of more help!

Only gas can do this. The belief about fat is an old medical myth.

Not so sure flux. I was always told that bm's should float, or at least not sink staight to the bottom. My D floats sometimes and is pretty horrible, and makes it smell worse too.
