Orange grease bubbles in stool. Have had black stools. What about this is concerning?

I am having orange grease bubbles in my stool. I have not changed my diet at all and I do not eat many fatty foods do to the fact that I constantly battle with controlling my weight. I have had black stools in the past but never thought much about it. This is just too weird for me. Should I be concerned? I am a college student with no insurance so I don t want to go to the doctor unless I have to because I have no money to pay them with...

Hello Dear
Black stool with orange bubbles is a matter of concern in any age. Black stool is due to blood in stool. This can be due to liver disorder or infection of lower GI track.
Get your liver function test, stool for occult blood and Colonoscopy done. If you have no money than follow some instructions: Take higher fiber diet, avoid alcohol and smoking, chew your food properly, avoid fatty and oily food, plenty of water and can take laxative or stool softener.
If this helps you than carry on with following the instruction otherwise you have go through the investigation and consult your doctor.
Best Wishes and have a speedy recovery.
