Frequent passing of yellow stool may be a sign of medical condition. People diagnosed with acid reflux disease (GERD) often experience yellow-color stool. It is observed that when food particles pass through the digestive tract rapidly, thus, resulting in decreased absorption of useful nutrients. Other possible causes for yellow stool are bacterial infection and low amount of bile in stool.
Bacteria e.coli and bacteria salmonella may cause green stool; however, the cases detected with the aforementioned causes are rare. You may be diagnosed with salmonella poisoning that is transferred into the system, through consumption of non-palatable dairy products or consuming meats that are not well cooked and remain more than partially raw. The presence of bacteria may cause food poisoning due to which symptoms of diarrhea may surface. Thus, green-colored feces could reflect food poisoning as a major cause.
Light-green colored stool may be because of excess amount of bile juice in the feces. This is not an unusual condition, until the frequency increases. In case of dark green stool, it is observed mostly in babies and toddlers. Other probable causes are too many greens in diet, less absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract, presence of bacteria, and medicine effect.
The high iron content in these supplements is the reason why stool appears greenish in color. Although, iron requirements rise due to increased quantity of blood during pregnancy, there is a possibility that some amount of supplemental iron might not get absorbed. This malabsorption of iron prompts the body to eliminate iron salts during bowel movements. As a result, the stools get an unusual color that is seen in shades of green.
