If your stool is yellow and contains visible mucus, the first thing I recommend is a comprehensive stool analysis (CSA). Your naturopath, doctor, or functional medicine doctor can often authorize a CSA.
When I think of yellow mucus, I think of a couple of conditions that could be the cause, Parasites, liver problems, and gall bladder dysfunction are all possibilities. Inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome can also present with mucus and yellow colored stools.

- Test Results Should Never Be Considered Exclusively
- Recurring Ringworm: Can It Be Candida?

Initially, there are a lot of questions to be answered when trying to identify the cause of abnormal stools. Think back and remember what kind of medicines you were taking and what kind of stresses you were under when you noticed the changes in your bowel movements. Had you made any changes to your diet? The more information you can provide your doctor, the more likely they will get the diagnosis right the first time instead of the tenth.
I see people in my clinic who have seen 10, 20, even thirty doctors, and no one can figure out the cause of their bowel problems. Everyone’s guessing. Instead of wasting your time with guesses, get checked out properly with a CSA. Then you’ll know what you’re dealing with in your digestive system.
