See your doctor: It could mean anything from high iron in your diet, iron supplementation, or an upper GI bleed. Black, tarry stool is called "melena", and is the signature for an upper GI bleed; I would get it evaluated by a doctor soon, and if it is persistent or is associated with fatigue, low blood pressure, high heart rate, or bleed elsewhere, I would go to the er quickly. ...Read more

Rapid transit time: Bile is green in color and is a component of your stool. As it moves thru the gut it turns brown due to the action of intestinal bacteria on the bile. Green stool indicates that food has passed thru your intestines faster than usual and the stool hasn't had a chance to turn brown. For the various causes of this go to > http://abt.

Color from food dye: The color of your stool is the result of the food you ingested. Nothing in the body causes blue colors. Blue dye is used in medicine for this reason. Blue is used to see areas for surgery because nothing in the body is blue (although veins look this way, they are not blue).
check your stool again in a few days without eating anything with blue dye. ...Read more

My exclusively breastfeed babies stool has mintgreen things and its armygreen in colour & runny, what could be the problem & how do I solve it.?

Baby stool: It is probably normal if the baby is exclusively breast fed. There was some tarry greenish stool in the colon during pregnancy, and it slowly comes out over the first few weeks, which is probably what accounts for the greenish color. The consistency of normal baby stool varies from very, soft, wet mushy (usually sweet smelling) stools to firm. Unless the stools are very watery, don't be concerned. ...Read more
