Hi Anon

Thanks for contacting us!

You did not ask a specific question - only the words "black stool" so I will assume you are experiencing this.

Black stool often indicates a problem in the digestive tract. This could be due to gastritis, diverticulitis, an ulcer, Chrone's Disease, colitis or from a weakened liver due to alcohol abuse or even a problem with your blood.

Your symptoms of black stools may not be connected to any of the above and there could be a simple explanation for it but you should see a doctor regardless - black stool that is not diet related (ie; coming from the kind of foods you eat) should be checked out.

I hope this helps and please update us when you can,
