Diabetes, loose, green stools, eating less than usual. Treatment required?

I ve had bright green poop for over 30 hours now. It s loose stoole but not quite full blown diarrhea . My eating habbits have changed, I am eating less than I was. I was assuming that it was an excess amount of bile/my poop wasn t staying in my large intestine for long enough. I am also type I diabetic. What could be going on, and when should I see a doctor, if I have to, or is this very treatable on my own?

Hello Matt, welcome to HCM.

Green stools for more than 2-3 days needs medical intervention. If you are on iron supplements or have consumed a lot of green leafy vegetables, there might be possibilities of green stools. Also, bile juice can also be a reason but the condition needs treatment then. Try consuming mild foods such as brown bread, wheat flakes, eggs etc and check for the color. If it still persists, kindly visit a doctor as you are also diabetic.

Good luck!!!
