For the past 2months I have noticed that in the morning my tongue is yellow even though I brush before bed what could it be?

Yellow tongue in AM: It may be a sign of mild dehydration that happens overnight while you're asleep. As long as you feel well, there probably isn't anything to worry about.

If you smoke, that can make the tongue look yellow (best to stop smoking, for many reasons). ...Read more
