Green Stool Liver Disease
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
See your doctor.: You must see your doctor to get this fully evaluated. It might be nothing more than being on your meds, but it might be something serious. It might be something to do with your pancreas as you're diabetic, so an enzyme panel including amylase and lipase might help. You're relatively young, so it's unlikely to be a serious issue, but you never know so see your doctor to be sure. ...Read more

Sort of...: The liver makes bile which flows into the intestine to help digest fats and oils. The bile is green, but mixed in with stuff in the colon, it gives the stool colors from yellows through browns. Yellow stool is what we see in babies. Yellow would be too light a color for children and adults. Stool without much color, or with grayish/chalky color, may mean the bile is blocked. A doctor can evaluate. ...Read more
Besides liver, gallbladder, pancreas problems, could ulcers cause pale yellow stool? What about diet?
Yellow stool, no liver, no gallbladder problems. No diarrhea. No pain. Nothing. Just Yellow stool. 1 - 2 bowel movements a day. Malabsorption?
Could be: Neither is normal. Black stools can be due to pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) use or from blood arising from a source in your stomach. Green urine could be the result of some food coloring agents or medications/vitamins you are taking. Either way they should be investigated for underlying causes. ...Read more

Not absorbing fat: Fat in stool can cause bulky foul smelling stool that floats, oily or greasy appearance. Fat in stool is not absorbed by digestive tract. Temporary steatorrhea may result from dietary changes or intestinal infections. Steatorrhea that is persistent may result from block of the biliary tract, pancreatitis or intestinal malabsorption.
