Mucus stool hi bili: Constipation? may be hemorrhoids, or food intolerances , or polyp or proctitis, ileitis . Is it blood in stool or food residuals? Would f/u/ w/ GI for colonoscopy Have you had elevated bili before? That is not usual unless lifelong ( disease like Gilbert's, G6PD, thalasemia).

Blood in stool: Fatty liver and & increased bilirubin did need you to change your diet. Blood in stool needs some diagnosis. Overall you are doing the right thing from lifestyle standpoint. Blood and mucus needs evaluation so make sure your doctor knows about this.
