Stool color is grey. Help! please?

Stop worrying: Stool color reflects what you've been eating: fatty or not fatty, high or low fiber, plant or animal, etc.Etc.. The two colors that worry me most are black (bleeding in the stomach) or red (bleeding in the intestines). If you feel good and there have been no changes in your health, relax. If you don't feel good and your health has changed, then stool color might be a clue. See your doctor. ...Read more
