Have had "really" dark green stools 4 2 days. Been fighting a bad cold 4 2 wks, but also diagnosed w/gastritis yrs ago. Stool color cause 4 concern? : (

Green stool: Occasional green stool color is normal, usually due to passage through the digestive tract with some degree of rapidity such that bile is incompletely metabolized (which contributes the brown color). Diet high in leafy greens can also cause this. Or iron supplementation. Read more

Bile: Diarrhea after cholecystectomy is common, and often caused by bile (green). This may even rarely last an year. Avoid milk products, oily foods, caffeine, and very sugary food/drinks, and ask your gastroenterologist about some anti-diarrheal medications like loperamide (if diarrhea persists) or bile binders like aluminum hydroxide or cholestyramine.

If this pain spreads to the right and you get loose stools you might need an ultrasound to exclude gall stones or gall bladder infection or inflammation.

Hi I have reflux, gastritis, lots of gas and intestinal rumbling followed with dark green loose stool that's foul smelling. Is this ibs? If not help!?

Hi I have reflux, gastritis, lots of gas and intestinal rumbling followed with dark green loose stool that's foul smelling. Is this ibs? If not help!?

Not irritable bowel: Reflux isn't IBS, gastitis is inflammation of the stomach. Foul-smelling stools sometimes mean gastroenteritis or malabsorption. Sounds like it is time for a GI specialist or at least a visit to your usual physician for stool studies if the problem continues and even a gluten sensitivity panel with a later GI referral. Irritable bowel synd is a diagnosis of exclusion, although real and painful. Read more

Light beige stools despite all that I have ate. Started 3 months ago. Blood work shows normal. HX of gastritis. No other symptoms.

Light beige stools despite all that I have ate. Started 3 months ago. Blood work shows normal. HX of gastritis. No other symptoms.

Need stool studies: I'm not sure what "light beige" means, but I assume there was a change in stool color over the past 3 months. A stool analysis could help. Assuming the stool is solid, a fat analysis could tell you if you have a problem with fat malabsorption. Too little points to a change in your diet. Too much points to a pancreas or biliary problem. See a doctor / GI or talk to someone on HealthTap Prime. Thx. Read more

Hello, I am suffering from gastritis since 5 days which now has resulted in diarrhoea with very watery stool. Should I have any medicine?

Hello, I am suffering from gastritis since 5 days which now has resulted in diarrhoea with very watery stool. Should I have any medicine?

See a doctor: The only manner in which this can be accurately diagnosed is to examine the stool and get a thorough history and physical exam. Stool may need cultures, exam for inflammatory cells, etc, before an accurate picture of the problem and plan for treatment can be created. For medication you can try imodium, (loperamide) but would still get evaluated. Read more

Before Endoscopy: Of course you should worry about this and so should your family doctor. You need to know if you have H. Pylori infection caused Peptic ulcer disease and if you are anemic. These are diagnosed easily by blood test. Read more
