Time to see your doc


Diarrhea illnesses are a cause of dehydration. The cause of your diarrhea could range from an infection to a chronic inflammatory condition. Even a viral gastroenteritis can give you these symptoms. See your doc so he can take stool samples and check your blood and your BP.

Gallbladder/Diarrhea


Some patient after having gallbladder surgery will have postprandial diarrhea. This is likely related to bile overflow since your gallbladder is removed and now bile is being stored in the duodenum (could lead to overproduction). AKA post-cholecystic syndrome. Majority of patients will have symptoms resolved within 3 months. If not, can use cholestyramine to control the diarrhea.

That's not an unusual color for a diarrhea. The causes of diarrhea, however, can be as many as you can think starting with infection (stomach flu) to functional such irritable bowel syndrome to malignancy.

Yellow GI fluids


Both the yellow diarrhea and the yellow bile color in vomitus are due to the same chemical, bile, which is produced by the liver. Normally you never see it in the stomach because normal eating keeps it moving down the GI tract. But when you vomit, and if you're stomach has no food, then all there is to see is the bile. When you're not eating regularly, the same bile will make your stool yellow.
