Now Only $1. 99 Patients often ask us if tan colored stools are normal? The simple answer is no. In a healthy functioning digestive system, normal stools should be brown colored (similar to a milk chocolate candy bar), not tan colored stools. PStools derive their normal brown color from bile pigments. Bile is a detergent-like fluid made by the liver, and released by the gallbladder. P Bile emulsifies fat, breaking it down into smaller, more easily digestible globules so it can be absorbed into the body. You may be familiar with the process of emulsification that occurs when we use dish washing detergent to wash greasy dishes. Without detergent it's much more difficult to clean a dish full of ribs or cheese enchiladas. PWhen your poop is tan colored, it's a sign that not enough bile is being delivered to your small intestine. Inadequate flow of bile into the intestine is like trying to wash a plate of ribs or cheese enchiladas without detergent. PWithout adequate amounts of bile,Pyou can not digest the fats in your food because your body cannot break the fat into small globules. Inadequate amounts of bile also creates problems with digesting your protein and carbohydrates. That's because the fat coats all your food, not just fatty foods.
When fat coats your food and forms a greasy layer around food, your own digestive enzymes cannot getPaccess to breakPdown the food Pto digest it.

PThere may be an obstruction in the ducts. PGallstones, or more commonly, sludge in the ducts that prevents the flow of bile. Many patients also experience when they are having problems with the gallbladder. P Tan colored stools may be a sign that your stomach is not producing enough stomach acid, as stomach acid is one of the factors that determines how much bile is released by your gallbladder. Tan colored poops often accompany an intolerance to fat, and a deficiency in the enzyme lipase, which Pdigests fat. Poor can lead to problems such as hormonal imbalances, dry skin, and poor immune function. While obstructions are usually addressed by surgery, gallstones and billiary sludge may be dissolved by dietary changes, along with specialized supplements to support the liver and thin the bile.

Diarrhea can come in an assortment of colors, and orange is one of them. If you wish to examine the color of your bowel movements, the best way to do this is to make sure, first of all, that the lighting in the bathroom is good. Next, if possible, urinate before you release your movement, and then flush the toilet so that the yellow of the urine won t taint your perception of the color of your diarrhea. When viewing the color of your bowel movement, lift the toilet seat up for a better view, and better lighting. I spoke with Edward Cruz Paredez, MD, section chief of gastroenterology atP La Jolla. HePexplains, Stool can vary in color for a number of reasons. The common colors of brown and green are due to the digestion of food and combination with yellow/green bile secreted by the liver. But what about orange diarrhea? Dr. Paredez explains, Orange diarrhea can be caused by food or supplements which contain orange food coloring, food with artificial yellow or orange coloring, or foods such as carrots, cilantro, collard greens, fresh thyme, kale, sweet potatoes, spinach, turnip greens, winter squash.
Do you take turmeric supplements? Bright orange specks may show up in your bowel movements, though this should not actually color your bowel movements orange. Dr. Paredez continues, Orange diarrhea may be the result of infectious diarrhea, which causes rapid transit through the intestine, which limits the amount of bile in the stool. Less commonly it could also occur from a blockage of the bile ducts, which can be seen in cases of gallstones or bile duct or pancreatic cancers. Bile duct cancer and pancreatic cancer are the life-threatening medical conditions that can result in orange diarrhea. However, this color in your bowel movements rarely means cancer. In fact, biliary blockage from cancer more commonly produces white, grey or clay colored stools, adds Dr. Paredez. Another potential cause of diarrhea that has an orange tinge to it, isP microscopic colitis, an inflammation of the lining of the large colon. This non-serious condition interferes with food absorption (contributes to rapid colon transit), so if you eat something that s reddish or orange (not necessarily fruit; this could be the contents of a seasoning packet for rice), some of that may not get digested and will end up in your diarrhea giving it an orange tinge.
