Hi.

Usually yellow stools indicate a gall bladder problem or poor absorption of all the fat in a diet but not a liver problem. The fact that this is an intermittent event makes it likely that it's just a diet problem or perhaps irritable bowel syndrome. The simplest way to check out your liver would be to have a blood test to look at your liver enzymes

Let me know if you nee more information please
