Orange watery stool? Abdominal crming, gasy, watery orange stool.Some solid stool, lack of energy.
Hello. : Hello. I canâ€™t diagnose the reason for your orange colored stool. Passing orange feces may mean the stool either isnâ€™t absorbing or isnâ€™t coming in contact with enough bile salt.

If you have been ingesting a lot of antacids that contain aluminum, that can also cause orange stools. Suggest you consult with your doctor on this one. ...Read more
