Brief Answer: Please refer to the following suggestions... Detailed Answer: Hi, Having pooping green might be related to: - foods you eat (especially green leaves) - medications you take (like vitamins) - if associated with diarrhea (passing stool more than 3 times/day,fever,etc.) might be because of intestinal infection. I'd suggest to do examination of stool: - for ova/parasites - culture for bacteria/candida - do abdominal ultrasound - consult GI specialist - do testing for occult blood in feces Meanwhile, I advise to: - drink more pure water - take otc o.r.s. - if diarrhea, take tasectan and probiotic to optimize the normal intestinal flora - keep good hygiene - have your meals regularly At last, please consult with your GI as soon as possible!
