What is the possible cause of yellow colored stool or yellow liquid stool.?

Depends on things...: Yellow is one of the normal stool colors, but usually in babies. For non-babies, stool color changes to more yellow if the stool is looser and is moving through the bowels in a shorter time, but that should be only temporary. Older children and adults don't have yellow stool as their normal stool, so a doctor can check to see if there is an infectious problem or gall bladder (bile) problem. ...Read more

Zyrtec: May cause diarrhea / cholestasis (no or less bile flow from bile ducts) which can cause light colored stools.

Incomplete question: Not all of your statement came through. If you have had unintended weight loss, you may have malabsorption and should consult a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Always had bad stool. Past year used toilet paper over finger to push it out since its hard. Noticed little blood sometime and yellow liquid. Is it dange?

Always had bad stool. Past year used toilet paper over finger to push it out since its hard. Noticed little blood sometime and yellow liquid. Is it dange?

Chronic constipation: I would recommend stool softener and soluble fiber such as Fibercon or metamucil. Physical activity and foods high in dietary fiber may also be helpful. The blood is most likely related to minor trauma from the hard stool itself. If these measures aren't helpful I would recommend following up with a physician rather than using harsh laxatives. ...Read more

I've been having fevers and really sharp pains in my lower stomach. At one stage my stool was liquid and the next day is was solid but yellow. Advice?

Need to be seen: Those symptoms can be seen with and infectious gastrointestinal problem that may need antibiotics. A thorough history which would include timeline of the symptoms as they progressed, a physical exam and some labs and possibly radiology studies can determine if it is an emergent problem that needs immediate intervention or something that can be treated as outpatient. ...Read more

Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum.

Liquid stool after a workout, what should I do?

Hydrate: Both a workout and a liquid stool will dehydrate you, so the first step is to hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids, mainly water. Diarrhea will often resolve on its own within a day or so, so it would be reasonable to just keep yourself hydrated and eat a bland diet and observe, but do see a physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I defecate 1-2/day. Starts off every time w/ solid stool but always ends w/ soft or liquid stool for the last 1.5 mo. Why?

I defecate 1-2/day. Starts off every time w/ solid stool but always ends w/ soft or liquid stool for the last 1.5 mo. Why?

Normal: The colon (and rectum) absorb water. The stool coming out first has had more internal contact time with the colon lining, thus more water reabsorption; leading to harder stools compared to the stool that is evacuated after this.
This is normal.
Stool softners would make the harder stool softer, but really not needed unless it bothers you, or it is causing hemorrhoids. ...Read more
