Why Is My Shit Always Runny
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

I take many medications for many things right now. I've struggled with constipation. Recently my stool was dark green and runny. What should I do?
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.

My stool was a greenish blue color being half runny half hard. I drank a blue Powerade yesterday but it has never caused this before. Along with that?
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
White fluffy mucut, red blood. And small white dots in runny stool once a month what can this be?
Good question, but..: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G anorectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
