The term 'poop' refers to the solid waste matter that is eliminated out of the body during bowel evacuation. Usually, a healthy bowel movement produces brown colored stools. A change in stool color to green indicates that something is wrong with the intestines but can also mean too much consumption of certain foodstuffs. It is discussed below:
Before initiating the treatment, the underlying cause of green stool in children or in adults is confirmed with a lab diagnosis. It is done through an examination of a stool sample. The tests which are usually employed include X-ray, blood tests, a procedure known as stool culture, and colonoscopy procedure. The type of treatment for a particular patient is driven by the nature of the symptoms, the causal factor(s) and test results. Affected patients may be recommended changes in their diet, apart from administrating medications for maintaining digestive health.
Chlorophyll rich vegetables may be one of the reason behind dark green stool. If the green vegetables are taken in excess, they may cause your stool green. Hence there is no need to panic, but if you are still worried about it, then stop the consumption of green vegetables for few days and observe your stool. As green vegetables are some of the healthiest foods, start its consumption once your doubts are clear.
Food contaminated with bacteria especially E. coli or any other type of food poisoning can take you to green stool color. Try to avoid stale or contaminated food. If you observe green color stool for more than three days with fever and abdominal cramps, then consult a doctor immediately.
