Stool Color
My stool is sometimes 2 different shades of brown.  For instance, it will be light to medium brown with darker brown in different areas.  

Is this something bad?

Thank you for your advice.

This is likely normal stool color variation.  Colors to be concerned about would be red (blood), black (which can indicate upper GI bleeding), or clay colored (which can indicate gallbladder disease).  

You can discuss this further with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
