What does a stool of yellow watery mean? I've been fine stool wise all day, and have eaten normal healthy food

Something you ate: Didn't agree with you. A single stool of watery yellow has very little clinical significance. Colon transit time determines stool color and consistency. The faster the transit time, the more watery and lighter in color the stool. If the loose stools continue for more than 24 hours or if you see blood in stools you should seek medical attention.

If these symptoms last more than a day and you cannot keep fluid down, then see your doctor or going to an urgent care center are the options. ...Read more

Diarrhea.: Sounds like you have an intestinal infection. The diarrhea raises concern that you are becoming dehydrated, and that can affect your kidneys. If your urine is dark/amber, you need to drink more water. The rumbling noise is the stool passing quickly through your large intestine. Eat a bland diet: bananas, rice, bread. Avoid milk. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Viral, food related: Watery and loose stools without the fever and abdominal pain could be due to multiple causes. Food poisoning, viral or bacterial
gastroenteritis could be some of them.
Yellow or orange stool could be secondary to the color of the food: carrots, cilantro, squash, sweet potatoes. Lack of the bile in the stool because of fast passage through the intestine could cause the yellow color too. ...Read more
