orange pee

The Shit Volcano asks:

I recently went to the doctor for a regular check-up, and she decided that my medications needed to be turned up a little. The medication is used for social anxiety disorder.

Okay, don't laugh! I'm self-conscious.

Anyway, since this time, my pee has been orange. Not all the time, but some of the time. A friend told me that this could be due to the medication. I don't know, as I have been on both medications for years without orange pee.

I am drinking plenty of water, so I don't think it's a water issue. Perhaps ass gnomes attacking again? I don't know.

Maybe you have an answer, Poonurse.

Dear TSV,

Thanks for the question!

Abnormal changes in urine color can be caused by many things, including certain medications (although I couldn't find any mention of psychotropic drugs doing this) -- and especially laxatives.

Vitamins may cause orange urine.

Different foods such as beets and rhubarb may cause orange urine.

There are also a host of nasty diseases that may cause this.

I personally do not believe that the Ass Gnomes mess with urine very often.

What you should do is to increase your intake of water (even though you said you drink a lot, be sure you are drinking 8-10 large glasses a day); keep track of the foods you are eating; and make note of any vitamins or supplements you may be taking.

If it continues, see your doctor and find out what's up.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

I need help. I have a pit bull, about 9 weeks old, that we got for my dad. We also have 5 cats. She knows how to pee and poop outside, and she's learned her name. Only problem is, my parents think its okay to throw the dog with the cats (unsupervised) and they say that over time the cats and dog will learn to tolerate each other. As of right now, the pup is chewing at stuff outside and chasing the cats. Calling her name and saying no doesn't help. I know she will form bad habits from this. What should I do?

When your body does something unusual there is always a possibility that something is wrong with it. Food that you eat can change the color of your urine to a nice orange color but, so can more serious things like liver disease. When there is any doubt at all you should check with a doctor.

Well don't worry it caused by too much oils from the food that u eat so the body gets rid of it by making it go out the other end and the orange part is probably a food coloring or by some type of food mixing with something else and I've had this problem for like 4 days because I ate some cashews and peanuts and some fish and orange soda the day before which confused me then I asked my dad cause he is a doctor and he says it just the foods you eat that causes all this so don't panic or worry.

Let's see... on the one hand, you can keep on eating like shit and then pop some pills which prevent absorption of said shit, but that also cause the unabsorbed material to ooze uncontrollably out your back end...


You could just eat right. Then you wouldn't have to worry about wasting money on diet supplements which only work as long as you take them and leave you wondering why your asshole is leaking.

Doesn't seem too difficult to figure out which is truly the better decision here.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

My poop is brown! yay for me. But I'm getting oily spots when I pee and it's freaking me out because I've had other weird things happen to me lately such as headrushes and a bloody nose. I'm not too worried, and I have had a lot of almonds lately but I still don't like it, I like having normal pee's and poops.

News just in.. its actually from my poop! and yay i am taking alli too! i knew that was it i feel so much better now. all that fat is just going down and not being absorbed yay!

I am having redish-orange poop, i have pain the my lower stomach and in my lower back. Can u tell me what it is or do i need to go to the hospital? please, help me im freaking out.

Mee's picture

So, I don't eat cashews, or fish. I mostly just eat junkfood and generally am good. But today I've been feeling sick, pooped this morning it was okay, but felt sick, then around noon pooped and it was a bit diarrhea...y Then tonight I came home and took a shet, felt a lot like diarrhea, but turned out I just pooped a small piece, and also a large orange blob disc. A bit bigger than a 50 cent piece... should I be concerned? What caused this? Too much fatty oil like from fast food?

I've been taking Alli and I have the orange oily poop problem... Alli works by keeping the stomach from absorbing some of the fat you eat. The reason for the orange oily poop is just from eating high fatty foods (like nuts) and not having them absorbed in the stomach. Thus, they are secreted as pure oil, which cannot be retained by the bowels and can cause anal leakage. Hope that helps.

I have had this oil red/orange bubbles in the toilet after having a bowel movement. This isn't the color of the movement but the sides are full of this oily stuff? It is scary as well as gross! Now I don't eat cashews, nor lots of fish. I don't eat potato chips, no diet pills but do like beer now and then? It is scary and haven't found much help out there? Anyone???

I've been on many cashew binges and not had any problems.

Until the 1/2 kilo bag i ate over 3 days (it said eat it within 3 days of opening, no mention of what it would do to someone who consumed that amount in 3 days)

And now i have orange oil poop! Dam it's inconvenient, especially being at university with a 15 min walk there and back, that's a lot of time to risk creating an oil slick in your pants.

Any suggestions as to get rid quickly? Like drink loads of water? or eat a bag of flour to soak it up (lol)

I also now realise that the 1/2 kilo bag had 2,500 calories in it! However, after just recently managing to get my BMI up to 19.1, that doesn't worry me too much - especially with all the exercise i do.

Im eating a frozen pizza and I guarantee you that tomorrow the toilet bowl will be a glowing orange mosaic of oil. It's a dirty job eating cashews, frozen pizza.

For those of you pooping orange oil, have you had Escolar lately? It's a delicious type of white fish. Here's the thing. The fish is actually illegal in Japan. It cannot digest all of the waxes in its diet and so it stores them as fat in its flesh. Which makes it delicious! Eating escolar can be compared to eating a stick of butter and under the right conditions, you can actually set it on fire. However, the human body cannot digest the fat and waxes stored in the Escolar's flesh and so it turns them into oil and eliminates them through our back end. It cannot be contained. Just comes out. It's yucky. It's smelly. It's uncomfortable. It's the fish. Escolar. Avoid it if you can! I unfortunately had the fish and then figured this out when the kids and I were pooping out orange oil. (sigh)

Anonymous Coward's picture

omg...i thought something was really wrong with me...but i ate cooked fish for lunch and the a bunch of sushi and tons of sashimi and i had blue fin toro...guess i couldnt break down the fats from the fish...and then i had a lot of alcohol to drink too...

This morning I went to the bathroom to urinate. My urine had orange cirles that looked like sequoits. (The sparkly things on garments) After ruling out the possibility of actually eating a dress, i realized that I ate a half bag of cashews in one sitting. I was horrified at first. Alhough I am blaming it on the cashews, can this be a serious disease?

I am an old man and easily confused but didn't;t this thread start about orange pee and then sorta turn to poop? I wish no bad luck on anyone but a dog I once owned was peeing bright orange and the vet said it was caused by an excessive amount of biliruben in the urine. Excessive biliruben causes jaundice and is, I believe, a sign that the old liver is not working correctly. Anyone who pees orange should see a doctor. If you shit orange just watch what you eat.

I had a pee this morning, and it had the oily orange circles. i was begining to freak cuz it's the 4th of july and my doctors are closed till monday. :( but this is good, i had a ton of peanuts this tuesday, and fast food alot this week. i'm very skinny, and trying to gain weight. obviously fats arn't the answer. :(
but at least it's not cancer, or fish poisoning.(i've had no fish) thanks a bunch ppl!

Anonymous Coward's picture

I strongly agree with the post made on 2-22-08.
I haven't eaten alot of cashews recently and yesterday I barely ate anything. The day before I ate 2 bowls of Campbells tomato soup that had chunks of tomatoes in it. You can imagine my orange, mushy, oily poop mess in the toilet this morning. Oh, and I drank alot last night. SUMMER BREAK! I feel better knowing it was the tomato soup and I will take that to the bank!

Anonymous Coward's picture

oh my gosh i have been taking alli also and having this problem! i feel so much better now. thank you for the comments haha

Anonymous Coward's picture

Basically I've had the whole shebang described here to cause the orange oil. I ate a can of cashews, a lot of fish, and then I excercised more than usual and today I recieved the lovely orange oil suprise!

yesss's picture

finally an answer, i've been talkin alli too and have had the same problems. at least i know i'm not dying now.

colonchecker's picture

Hi. Yes, you will have the same effect with alli. It's the fat not being absorbed by your colon

Anonymous Coward's picture

i just had the ornage oil gross poop thing too, and i really think it's because of the diet pills i am taking. alli diet pills.

could i be right??

Comment Quality Moderatori 2000+ points

I'm going to go out on the Prarie Doggins limb and break it, by suggesting going to a doctor. If the orange oil pancakes persist and/or are acoompanied by epigastic pain. You could be having malabsorbtion due to a number of reasons like, for example, Pancreatitis. Don't get scared. You probably don't have Pancreatitis because you would get really sick with nausea, vomiting, pain 10/10. If acute, end up with your butt in the hospital. It could be the first sign of Pancreatic cancer, I don't know. If you can't absorb fat then an enzyme that comes from the pancreas is not functioning. Exception is to the side effect of that chemical in the potatoe chips. If it is just that your pancreas is not functioning normally because of diabetes, you have to know . Malnourishment ensues if malabsorbtion is not corrected. Get it checked out .

OP, I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest you stop eating cashews, unless you were planning to erect an oil derrick on your ass.

oilly pooper's picture

I've been eating tons of cashews lately and today I was stunned to see my oilly poop. Ive had nothing else to eat that I don't consume on a regular basis. I'm confident the cashews are at play here.

Anonymous Coward's picture

This is the funniest "shit" i've ever heard of... (altho i have it aswell at the moment)

Damn oil slicks aint fun tho... i'd rather some skid marks instead.. but oil.. hell no.... and i ate a load of cashews explains the oil... and a load of dried apricots explains the more liquid form.

I'm glad theres many others with the same problem.. i was about to goto the docs.. thinking i had some sort of disease..

oh BTW why the hell do American toilets have such small holes... i clog them on courtesy flushes... here in Australia the hole is about 3-4 larger and i clog that without the TP in 1 of 3 chances... damnit i hate my 1KG turds, after around 60-70 days i've done a shit thats equal to my weight.

Dear Anonymous Coward,

After careful review of your case we have to agree that you are not sick. You are, in fact, better than healthy.

The colored poops you've been experiencing have just been trial runs. You are shitting the Rainbow. It seems that the Skittles Corporation has taken up residence in your asshole. They decided that you should be the new location of operations after taking measurements. Your asshole had the largest amount of space to be offered in the tri-state area. This means, of course, that you are the largest asshole around.

We welcome your repeated visits to the site, as they re-enforce the validity of the measurements. Only someone with an asshole as large as yours would constantly post on a site that others visit the same site too much.

Please continue to post in the future, as it will hopefully make you an even bigger asshole, and that, in turn, will give the world more Skittles.

We are always right, and you're just jealous.

Hey guys, good news. Not only did Bilge adopt me before I was put down, he also adopted three more little doggies just like me. I'm busy getting them on line now and we should be having a lot of fun soon!! Oh, LJ have you heard from oily ass while I was gone?

Thanks, AC. We've been waiting around for somebody to suggest that prarie turn himself in to authorities. 3-4 days is a little long to wait, but we'll try to be patient.

Now as to your ass problem. I'm afraid that prarie is the local authority on asses and their problems. We'll try to get Bilgepump in here to help; he has some expertise with ass diagnosis but certainly he's no expert like doggie is (was). So I'm afraid you may be out of luck, buddy.

Good luck, but whatever you do don't go see a doctor. He'll (or she'll) just laugh and make jokes at your expense.

yes and when i asked this question it was directed towards someone smart who could answer it, not a LITTLE DOGGIE.. it looks like you have a little problem yourself... let me help you solve it! let me guess,you'er a lost little doggie... with no hope! you must look absolutely hideous for no-one to want you and thats probably why you spend your time on a poop website minding everyones business but your own. Here's some advise you might want to take into consideration, it will all be over with if you would just take yourself to the pound they will take you out of your misery and put you down within 3-4 days!! you're welcome for the advice i hope that you relieve us all and follow it!

I would say you DO have a problem with your ass, as by your question. Other than making fun of you, I can't be of much help.

One bit of advice, until you get help, please refrain from swimming in the Prince William Sound. The marine mammals are still a bit skittish.

i had the orange oily dots in my poo.. today was the 2nd time in a row and i got freaked out.. HOWEVER.. i also ate the low fat pringles with Olestra that was mentioned above.. maybe its the Olestra.. beings that the cashews or nuts may have been roasted in it?

Anonymous Coward's picture

Well I have a new orange poop idea. Everyone seems to get it from eating nuts which may be true. However, I had a whole can of tomatoe soup to myself yesterday, and this morning my poo came out orangy/red.
You can take that to the bank folks.

Well I woke up this morning with horrible stomach pains. I blew the biggest fart I ever let go, and when i sat down my ass felt kinda slick. Then all the sudden I had to go push some poop outta my butt. I did my work and decided to look and it was Orange and Oily i almost shit myself I thought I had aids or something, but i remember at work I at some kinda white fish and had cashews as well. After all my research everyone said the same thing so dont eat to much white tuna fish or cashews, because you constantly leak outta your ass and you have to hold your farts in or its a mess and by the way the smell is horrible, smells like burnt rubber with garlic in it

Poopin in Ohio's picture

Wow, I can't believe how many people are having this problem!

I kind of have an orange oil poop problem, except mine is not quite orange, it's almost like neon green. Kinda looks like olive oil. But I haven't consumed olive oil recently. No cashews either. A stir fry yesterday, and some greasy chicken chunks last few days, which is my theory so far - the greasy hot sauce is turning colors on me...

Anonymous Coward's picture

I actually ate a whole bunch of raw cashews 2 weeks ago and had the orange oil and the poop and 2 months ago I also got orange oil after I had cashews so for me I'm pretty sure it's the cashews it's probably something that I can't digest

Anonymous Coward's picture

wow. this page makes me feel better. I ate a massive amount of cashews for the last 3 or so days. I just experienced my first orange-oil poop. never again will i eat a nut. It is too disgusting.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I also had the orange oil in my poo, and before I even came across this page I had a hunch that it was all the cashews I had just eaten the day before. I plan on not eating cashews for a few days to see what happens. When all is "clear" I'll binge on cashews again to see if the oil comes back.

recent orange oil pooper's picture

i have been eating frozen pizzas and drinking my ass off for three nights straight. i can tell you that these combined will make you poop orange oil, its nasty. the reason for the oil is that your body cant break down that much grease.

scared shitless's picture

I have no idea what's causing the orange oil slicks, but it's freaking me out beyond belief. I'm already a hypochondriac, I don't need something ACTUALLY going wrong! I haven't eaten cashews, I don't eat fish...what the HELL is wrong with me? I've barely eaten anything in the past few days, but I have had a bit of a cold. My sister seems to think it's mucus that's just taken on some of the colors that go along with poop. I need definite answers and can't find them anywhere, and now am in a state of panic, because I don't have the answer I need, and now it's a weekend. What the hell am I supposed to do? Seriously, I need an answer that can apply to me...seriously scared.
