What may cause yellow diarrhea and yellow bile in vomiting?

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 your 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. ...Read more

I hav barretts oesophagus & vomit a lot, bile acid malabsorption with loose stools recently been getting a fever after eating a meal what cud this be?

Fever: Your fevers are nonspecific and not clearly related to the barretts or malabsorption syndrome as neither of these conditions are usually accompanied by post prandial fever. Are other symptoms like abdominal pain, sweats and chills or cough also occurring then? Infection or noninfectious inflammation are to be considered. See your MD for further evaluation and testing. ...Read more

My bf is vomiting all night and all day. It prevents him from sleeping. He even vomits bile, and has diarrhea. All endoscopies say normal. Please help.

Gastritis: If he has been endoscoped must assume that he has been seen by a gastroenterologist, and if they cannot find an organic cause for this condition one must consider the possibility of this being a psychogenic disorder. Discuss with the GI doctor and ask if consultation with a therapist might be of value. ...Read more

Yesterday I was vomiting green bile and have had diarrhea with it since sunday evening. My abdomen hurts very badly. Er doctor said it was uti. What's wrong?

Could be UTI, but...: Bile is typically a golden yellow to green color. It mixes with food to help digest dietary fats. When bile backs up into the stomach, it may appear in your vomitus. Lots of common things can cause bilary emesis and affect GI function (causing altered stooling) but if persistent, worsening, or associated with pain, tenderness, weight loss, blood then please have it further evaluated by your doc. ...Read more

Retained stone: Your doctor is making sure you don't have a stone in your common bile duct. It is unlikely but possible. If your enzymes are elevated he/she may want to further study you. You need to avoid dehydration first. If you are holding down food for the most part then you will continue to follow up. Your surgeon who removed the gallbladder will want to know that you had this problem so call please. ...Read more

I have food poisoning or the stomach flu. I woke up at 1 am puking and have continued to have diarrhea and puke up bile. Stomach hurts a lot.?

Could be either: Food poisoning or stomach flu can hit all of a sudden. The key is to get enough fluid down to adequately replace losses. Some electrolyte (lightly salted snack or gatorade) important too. Both can resolve quickly, stomach flu a bit longer. If dizzy and can't keep liquids down, then go to ER. ...Read more

Gastroenteritis: The combination of vomiting and diarrhea is usually due to viral gastroenteritis or food poisoning and either condition is self limiting using symptomatic treatment.

Does pyloric stenosis cause yellow bile in the vomit?

Does pyloric stenosis cause yellow bile in the vomit?

Not bile: Technically, there can be no bile in the emesis of a patient with pyloric stenosis. The pylorus is the muscular valve that controls exit of contents from the stomach. When the pylorus is stenotic, it is virtually closed, and the patient vomits out all gastric contents. Bile enters the GI tract in the duodenum downstream from the pylorus and stomach, so it can't be in the emesis of such a patient. ...Read more
