Pale Yellow Bowel Movement
Bowel movements were soft yellow stools then yellow diarrhea, been experiencing stomach nausea too.?
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

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. This can happen if the stool is transiting too quickly through the colon. As a result of moving so rapidly, fluid is not be adequately reabsorbed through the colon which results in liquid feces. Sometimes the problem can be that bile isnâ€™t getting through the bile ducts (i.e., like gallstones). Diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones & inflammation of the bile ducts are just a few possible reasons for orange stool. 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

IBS?: Not having the opportunity to interview and examine you, i can only go by what you have described. What caught my interest was your description of your stools.

Have you been given that diagnosis? ...Read more

Stool color: Bile gives color to the stool which is normally yellow to brown. Reduction of bile in the intestines can cause the stool color to be pale. Reasons for this could be obstruction of the common bile duct which prevents release of bile from the gallbladder or decreased production of bile stored in the gallbladder. Your doctor can help explain this process more in detail. ...Read more

7 year old son has had 3 bowel movements on 2/20/2018, and all 3 were white/ pale white in color, no complaining of stomach ache and no fever?
White/pale stools: White/pale stools can be due to abnormality in the bile system which includes the gallbladder, liver and pancreas.

Follow up with a doctor if the white stools persist. ...Read more

Cancer Risk: Bile acids are excreted in the stool unchanged in less than 24 hours. However, if the bile acids remain in the body more than 24 hours, they break down into potent carcinogens. Prolonged contact with the intestines and colon result in carcinogenic changes--i.e., bowel cancer. Vitally important to have a bowel movement every day! You need more fiber (psyllium husks), magnesium, and water. ...Read more

The body churns up food, processes it, and our bacteria metabolize bits and pieces, so one can see all kinds of weird stuff in there. Don't let it freak you out. ...Read more
