I have dark green almost black poop I have been drinking a lot of grape juice could that be the cause?

It's possible.: As long as your stools are not solid black or bloody, it is possible that it is related to the grape juice. You should stop the grape juice for one week, and then resume taking it. If your stools return to normal initially but then return to the odd color, you have your answer. Good luck. ...Read more

Will stool turn dark brown when drink black coffee?

Will stool turn dark brown when drink black coffee?

Too much coffee?: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums...

After drinking for a few nights, I noticed my stool was very dark, either black or dark green, should I seek medical attention?

After drinking for a few nights, I noticed my stool was very dark, either black or dark green, should I seek medical attention?

Yes, immediately.: Black stool, especially when slightly loose and rather foul-smelling, often is an indication of internal bleeding of the upper digestive tract. The black stool is digested blood, and it is referred to as melena. Because the bleeding could still be on going, this is considered an emergency. You should go to the nearest emergency room, or call 911 if you are lightheaded. Do not delay. Good luck. ...Read more

Kind of embarrassing but, I have been drinking dark chocolate Atkins shakes lately. My stool is very dark now. Could that be the reason?

Not sure: Usually chocolate does not cause dark stools. If the stools are black, particularly if they are foul-smelling, you should be checked out to see if you are having internal bleeding. Otherwise, I would stop the Atkins drinks and see if your stools return to normal. Good luck. ...Read more

Will eating dark chocolate turn my stool black? There was a dark purple jelly sort of film over one of the pieces. Haven't been drinking much water so the stool was pretty hard, a little stressed lately should I be worried about things like cancer

Black stool: If all you observed was one questionable piece of stool, it doesn't sound significant. Chocolate would not affect stool color. Obvious black stools can be due to bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract, taking iron, or taking peptobismol or kaopectate. If there is still concern, a simple stool test for occult blood can be done in your physicians office. ...Read more

Hi, My baby is now 1 year old and poops after every meal/drink (almost 5 times a day) the consistency of the poo is normal. Is it normal?

Can be: There is a basic process called the gastrocolic reflex. It is a wave of stimulation that sends a "move on" message to our gut after we take a volume of material into our stomach. The reflex may or may not trigger an emptying, but it is part of normal digestive action. You possibly reduce the frequency of emptying by adding some cereals or bananas to the diet.Plums/prunes/apple juice give more stools ...Read more
