Re: Jaundice?
Sep 26, 2004
Stool color is greatly effected by what you eat. If you eat a lot of green veggies you'll find your stool will be greenish in color, blueberries will also make for some interesting color changes.

If you're eating a bland diet, taking antiacids, little or no dark vegetables, fruits, etc. You're stool will be light in color.

Typically clay colored stools are what tend to raise a red flag.

You mention that because the bilirubin is high in your urine that you're jaundiced. Is your skin or the whites of your eyes actually yelllow? Jaundice means yellowing of the skin, eyes or mucous membranes and it's caused by bilirubin accumulating in the skin not from it only being secreted in the urine.

Light colored stools can be a sign of gallbladder trouble but you would have other symptoms.

Stress can cause numerous problems and changes with bowel habits. It's possible that you are dealing with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Other then the color of your stools has anything else changed about them?

I hope this has been helpful.
