In brief: Pale stools

Pale stools can come from different sources.
Usually it is due to poor fat absorption, indicationg a problem with the liver or gall bladder. Sometimes in liver failure, bilirubin builds up in the system, and can cause yellowing of the stools. An evaluation of the liver is usually warranted.
