Normal variation: The color of poo is derived from the waste pigment that end up in the bile, which is added to the intestines from the liver. It starts out an intense green & over time may change thru yellow & brown. The germs of the intestine convert the pigment as it transits the digestive tract.

I am having bright green diarrhea and have not eaten anything green.

I am having bright green diarrhea and have not eaten anything green.

See below: Bile is green in color. As it travels thru the gut it's color is changed, eventually to brown. Greenish color can be the result of intestinal contents not remaining in the gut long enough to turn brown. Any condition that causes diarrhea can cause green stool.

Have you had recent travel, use antibiotics or has anyone else been sick? Give it a few days if the answer to all these is "no". If not better or gets worse then go see a doc. ...Read more

I've had green diarrhea for 7 weeks now. I'm worried something major is wrong. What could it be? I tend to defecate 2-3 times a day.

Diarrhea : if you have had persistent diarrhea for seven weeks, and it is a change in your bowel habits, you should see your doctor for diagnosis. Most episodes of acute diarrhea are better within 7 to 10 days, so it is possible you may need blood or stool tests, and an intervention of some sort to solve the problem. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi I just had green diarrhea tonight I don't have a fever what do I have and how can I cure this is it something I ate or am I sick.?

Green diarrhea: Is not necessarily bad. Green indicates that foods have traveled quickly through your GI tract. Manage the diarrhea with fluids containing electrolytes. If you are unable to keep up with fluids by mouth, you may need an IV, this would be to treat dehydration. Blood in your stool would be more worrisome. All the best and be seen if you are not better. ...Read more
