In brief: Habba Syndrome

Here's something else to try.
If you've already been through the million-dollar work-up and have no relief, consider a red herring. There is a condition that causes your symptoms that is due to excessive production and output of bile, which can act as a laxative and cause chronic diarrhea. The treatment is Cholestyramine 4gm twice daily - this will absorb the extra bile and normalize bms. Try it!
