Reduced fat cheese

I am a diabetic and also have elevated triglycerides. These conditions mean I should reduce my fat intake. However, I love cheese. To satisfy my cravings, I go for 75% reduced fat cheddar. Unfortunately, every time I do this I start getting bloody stools. 50% reduced fat causes less of a problem though.

My question to the forum is , should I just refrain from this type of cheese or has  anyone experienced a similar symptom which led to discovery of a more serious issue.

Thanks.

I love cheese too but it does cause constipation and this could be what is causing the bloody stools, did you ever find out the root cause?  Would love to hear an update.
