Ginny, I have had liver disease for a long time now and fatty liver will cause baby crap yellow, peanut butter poop. When I am sicker, it becomes white or gray and I know I am very ill, this hardly ever happens but has happened recently. It will change from yellow, to lghter yellow to nearly white to white or whitish gray over time with me. The light yellow bulky stools for me are part of my metabolic problems from the liver. Increasing my antioxidants, doing the whey protein sugar free smoothie thing with added fiber and full-spectrum digestive enzymes (since my rheumie saysthe pancreas often doesn't work as good in people with autoimmune disease) have helped and I can actually take a normal crap usually despite my illness (and I am as sick with fatty liver disease as I can be without being in End Stage Liver Disease --terminal-- but I've been at this stage for several years now).
yellow poo can just be normal on some meds I think. or a result of what you ate. One time as a child I pooped tie-dyed green, red,and yellow at a family gathering. It looked like the worst gi infection mess you could imagine. I was terrified and pulled my mom away from all the company to the bathroom to look at the poo, and she laughed. She had put too much food coloring in the press Christmas cookies.
My cousins and I giggled as we watched the adults sweating bullets and looking scared leaving the bathroom. It was so funny because they were just as afraid as we were and my mom was too embarassed to tell them.
So you can poo in many colors, even many colors at once. I would talk to the gi or rheumie about your liver enzymes and try to get a liver ultrasound if they are high since pred and meds can affect the liver and there is medcation for fatty liver that brings the enzymes down to normal and prevents bad stuff from happening. Anyway, I would ask about the enzymes and maybe probiotic yogurt and lots of fiber in the smoothie too. Sometimes just eating something easy to digest like that helps me and takes a load off the liver, sparing it for meds.
and as you all put together the paint swatches, don't forget something for the liver peouple further along, in the yellow white, whites and grays.
