Yellowish stool

Postby camper147 » Thu Sep 15, 2005 10:16 pm

is there need to be concerned about a yellowish stool that just started today? 43 year old male, non smoker,non drinker. maybe its just a passing thing but I have never seen anything like it before and some sites make it sound potentially bad.
everything else seems normal, appetite,sleep normal,no fever, minor stress,

many times the stools color reflect food intake, however, if you have light color stools, dark urine, and abdominal pain, this might be indicative of some type of liver problem.
" some times jaundice, or yellow color of the skin, eye balls, might be seen). if your symptom continue to occur frequently , i recommend that you see your doctor. other than that, as i said it could be food related, or drug induced (i do not have any info whether you are taking any medication).
thank you
