As a part of medical examination routine, the doctor usually ask the affected people about the frequency of bowel movement and stool appearance. In fact, its color and consistency can tell a lot about the digestive health of an individual. This is where understanding stool colors and what they mean becomes important for all of us. Briefly speaking, the color of stool varies from person to person, based on the type of foods consumed and also, by the amount of bile juice (secreted by liver) present in the feces.
Bile is secreted by the liver and is stored in the gallbladder. It is of yellowish green color. Bile juice is present in the small intestine and helps in the process of digestion. When the waste material passes through the small intestine, bile juice acts on it and helps in the digestion of fats. As the stool comes in contact with the bile juice, it undergoes chemical reaction and the green color of bile changes to brown. If the stool passes more frequently than normal, then the reaction is unable to take place which results in green color stool.
Yellow Gilbert's syndrome, malabsorption, giardiasis, and pancreatic cancer Gilbert's syndrome leads to poor processing of red blood cells; undigested fat mixes with stool in case of malabsorption of fats; a parasitic infection called giardiasis can cause yellow stool color and diarrhea
