This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.

How old are you? Do you take any medications? Do you have any medical conditions? Have you had this problem in the past? What color is the diarrhea? Any blood in the stools?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

59 no medications. No blood. Not had before. Colour..mustard now turning brown.

Expert:  DIEGO BONILLA replied 11 months ago.

The problem could be secondary to parasites, bacteria or malabsorption. For now the best approach is to see your PCP and have a full assessment. Let me know if you have any other questions.
