  • uh... green, blue, purple, (just kidding) RED especially because it could be blood... really dark stool sometimes means you're dehydrated. pretty much anything but the normal color... and don't say you don't know because everyone looks! lol

  • If its white I would call your doctor. I read something about what it meant but I cant think of it at the moment, but I think its something to be concerned about. I would call your doc and ask just to make sure.

    Sorry I wasnt much help, but your doctor knows best. Good luck!
