To be honest, green stool in children or adults is usually not a cause for concern and does not demand any medical treatment. Many times, modifying the diet works to restore normal color of the stool. However, if this doesn't work and green defecation is accompanied by persistent abdominal pain and strange bowel pattern, it suggests intestinal issues. In such cases, taking medical assistance is necessary so as to find out the exact cause and as per diagnosis, take the required treatment at the earliest.
A major defect in the digestive system may cause malabsorption of food particle consisting essential nutrients in the intestinal tract. Digestive problems also include constipation and diarrhea. An inadequate fat breakdown or an individual who endures lactose intolerance may encounter this condition. Lactose intolerance may also lead to an individual having a bout of diarrhea.
The term 'poop' refers to the solid waste matter that is eliminated out of the body during bowel evacuation. Usually, a healthy bowel movement produces brown colored stools. A change in stool color to green indicates that something is wrong with the intestines but can also mean too much consumption of certain foodstuffs. It is discussed below:
Dark red or maroon Internal bleeding of the lower section of the GI tract, internal hemorrhoids, anal fissure, colon polyps, diverticulitis, or colon cancer Internal bleeding causes blood to seep into the colon and get mixed with the waste
