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.
The food that we eat can also influence the color of the poop. Green vegetables in the diet is necessary for optimal health. Eating green vegetables in large amounts everyday is unlikely to damage your health but this habit can produce a harmless side effect that manifests in the form of green bowel movement.
The food that we eat is broken down into smaller particles with the help of wave-like muscle contractions that push food particles further down from the esophagus to the stomach. This process helps in churning food into a liquid mixture called chyme. As chyme moves back and forth in the small intestine, nutrients are extracted and assimilated into the bloodstream. The wave-like contractions in the large intestine facilitate the absorption of water into the bloodstream, and the waste that is left behind after the absorption of chyme and extraction of water, is excreted out of the body in the form of stool. Stool is the principle waste product of digestion.
There are many other causes also which may result in green color stool. Some liver disorder like jaundice may cause you green stool. Apart from this, the first stool of infants known as meconium is dark green in color and is very normal. Irritable bowel syndrome can also cause green color in stool.
