In brief: Liver Problems
The color of stool can help guide your doctor to determine the cause of the problem. White stool is often a result of a liver disease such as viral hepatitis which causes the bilirubin in your blood level to rise.
As a result there can be less of it in the stool and the stool then becomes "discolored" or white, gray, or pale. Note that eating all white foods can cause this as well.
