DrKnowsBest :

sometimes this is a gallbladder problem

DrKnowsBest :

do you have a gallbladder?

DrKnowsBest :

any abdominal pain or food intolerances?

DrKnowsBest :

yellow stools can be billious meaning there is a gallbladder problem, best way to know is start with some basic metabolic panels and stool specimen for fat to check for malabsorption

Customer:

no gallbladder

Customer:

this is also with loose stool

DrKnowsBest :

ok then this may be due to the fact that you have no gallbladder and lack the bile salts to metabolize fats well, i would do the above but sometimes we put a patient on bile salts to help this-this is like a cholestyramine or welchol, i would do the stool specimen but a trial of one of these prescriptions will likely solve your problem
