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, whitish, or gray stool is the sign for lack of bile juice in the bowel movement. This condition may be caused due to abnormalities in the bile duct that supplies bile juice. Probable medical conditions for these abnormal bowel movements include gallstones, giardia infection, hepatitis, and liver cirrhosis. If you are taking antidiarrheal medications at present, they might be the reason for passing pale-colored stool.
In case of passing unusual colored stool (besides brown color) consecutively for 1-2 days, get yourself checked by a trusted physician. The doctor will take a note of your diet and predict the probable cause for discolored bowel movement. If required, a stool analysis will be performed to rule out infection and probable medical conditions. And appropriate treatment will be directed based on the test result for combating the condition.
