Why am i gettin yellow foamy stool and i have gas problems after eating my age is 21 may know the apt reason?

Foamy Stool

Flatulence
Foamy diarrhea could indicate various maladies, including IBS, parasitic infections and gall bladder disease. If gall bladder disease is the problem, the foamy diarrhea is often yellow or green in color and can burn coming out of the anus. This is caused by bile acid. Gall bladder disease is often accompanied by a sharp pain in the upper abdomen. Also Celiac disease can cause this.

Occasionally after a cholecystectomy one may see bilous (yellow liquidy) stools especially after eating a fatty meal. This should improve with time. As long as there is no fever, chills or significant abdomen pains you should be fine in no time. If symptoms persist I would call your doctor for further evaluation.

Bile-colored stool

Open-uri20120909-25770-1lpj9qv
The amount, color, frequency of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors. If stool pattern has changed, is unusual for you, & the change persists, or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Does the liver cause yellow stool?

Sort of...

Open-uri20121004-11488-1ywfhhj
The liver makes bile which flows into the intestine to help digest fats and oils. The bile is green, but mixed in with stuff in the colon, it gives the stool colors from yellows through browns. Yellow stool is what we see in babies. Yellow would be too light a color for children and adults. Stool without much color, or with grayish/chalky color, may mean the bile is blocked. A doctor can evaluate.

What can yellow/green stools mean?

Fast gut movement

Intestine
Green/ellow stool could be due to a viral gastroenteritis where the stool is moving through your intestines quickly causing cramping and the green/yellow color because not enough transit time was available for turning the stool to brown.
