Yellow Vomiting Bile Causes, Treatment | Throw Yellow Liquid Vomit


I’ve always vomit a yellow liquid taste bitter. What would be the cause of the yellow thing that I vomited?


Causes of Yellow Vomiting

It seems that you are suffering from excessive acidity or a gall bladder obstruction which is resulting in the yellow (bile) vomiting. How often do you vomit? What is your age? What is the kind of diet you have? Do you vomit any time during the day or only in morning? Are you on any medications or drugs? Do you suspect jaundice? What is the color of your stools? Do you have radiating pain in the back?

It is important to ensure that your diet is appropriate to help you tackle the problem of obstruction of the gallbladder.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Consume small quantities of food at short duration. Don’t over eat.
  2. Don’t drink water during or at least half an hour after meal. Consuming water during meals tends to dilute the gastric acids which in turn can result in poor digestive functions.
  3. Avoid oily and fatty foods. Ensure that the food is rich in dietary fiber, vegetables, fruits, oat, cereals, pulses, etc. Don’t consume junk food or aerated drinks.
  4. Visit a gastroenterologist and verify the cause of the condition. It appears to be gall stone but it needs to be confirmed.
  5. You could try homeopathic remedy ‘Lycopodium’ in low doses, taken at least four times a day. This should improve the liver functions and aid in reducing the problem of vomiting.

    I have been diagnosed with stomach flu. After taking medications for 6 days, I started purging and vomited yellow liquid. The next day, I vomited watery liquid along with white phlegm. I have dry cough for the last 2 weeks. It does not subside and is terrible. I was given medications like Omeprazole for gastric ulcer, Hyosine for abdominal cramps, Dimenhydrinate for giddiness or vomiting and oral rehydration salts. What is the remedy?

      Stomach flu or viral gastroenteritis is as common as cold. Aside from the prescribed medications, home treatment found to ease the discomfort are:
      • Sip fluids from time to time. It will help to relieve dehydration. Suck ice when you feel nausea and vomiting.
      • Eat food that is easy to digest. BRAT diet is found useful. Banana, rice applesauce and dry toast. It provides strength and keeps in check stomach acids.
      • Take rest.
      • Drink butter milk as it has probiotics which help to maintain healthy gastric bacterial flora. Yogurt serves the same purpose.
      • Lemon tea helps to relieve dry cough. It is also useful for stomach flu at the same time.

      If you are vomiting frequently and you have yellow bitter taste, the probable cause can be increased acid secretion. It can also be associated with reflux esophagitis or gall bladder disease. You have to confirm the underlying cause with a gastroenterologist who is expert in gastrointestinal tract diseases. Vomiting of such type is not related to breast cancer. However, if your physician is suspecting breast cancer, you can undergo a test called mammography. It is a test similar to X-ray. The test can detect lumps in breast.
      To prevent vomiting, avoid eating spicy and oily food. Eat in small amount at frequent interval. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Drink one glass of milk once or two times in a day.
