Re: Severe loss of weight

White stool...
Yellow eyes...
Bile blockage in liver or gallbladder?

Scarring of bile tubes?
Viral Hep?
Liver Infection?

I think you need to see a ...liver doctor... parasites are not fitting very well. I had an unbelievable case of parasites, yet my liver still worked (mostly). In any case, your body cannot take much more of this, how far below 100 pounds are you?

You are loosing weight because you are not absorbing ...any... fat soluble vitamins.


Bile is a digestive fluid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Stool gets its normal brownish color from bile, which is excreted into the small intestine during the digestive process. If the liver doesn't produce bile or if bile is obstructed from leaving the liver, stool will be light colored or white.

Often the problem occurs in the tube (duct) that delivers the bile to the small intestine. This tube can be squeezed shut or blocked — for example, by a tumor or a gallstone — which prevents the bile from entering the small intestine. Some babies are born with constricted bile ducts. Liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis, also can sometimes cause white stool.

Health grades

Stool is normally brown due to the digestion of bile salts, which are made by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. When the amount of bile salts is significantly reduced or they are absent, the stool can be pale or even whitish. Liver disease can interfere with the production of bile salts, and anything that blocks the bile ducts can prevent bile salts from reaching the intestines.

White stool may be caused by conditions that decrease the amount of bile salts that reach the intestines including:

Biliary atresia (a condition present at birth involving abnormal bile duct development)

Biliary cirrhosis (inflammation of bile ducts in the liver)

Biliary stricture (narrowing of the common bile duct)

Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver due to chronic liver damage)

Cancer or tumors of the liver, the bile ducts, gallbladder, or pancreas


Hepatitis (liver infection or inflammation)

Sclerosing Cholangitis (bile duct inflammation and scarring)


The liver releases bile salts into the stool, giving it a normal brown color. You may have clay-colored stools if you have a liver infection that reduces bile production, or if the flow of bile out of the liver is blocked.

Yellow skin (jaundice) often occurs with clay-colored stools, due to the buildup of bile chemicals in the body.
