In this video, we’re going to talk about bile acid diarrhea.

Bile can cause diarrhea as a side effect. Why? Because bile inhibits H2O reabsorption.

Since too much bile can cause diarrhea, you don’t want to take purified bile salts if you already have diarrhea—it can make matters worse.

The gallbladder stores bile, so your body has plenty when it needs it. Many times when you have the gallbladder removed, there’s no way to regulate the release of bile. This can cause too much bile in the small intestine, which may lead to diarrhea.

97% of your bile is recycled for future use. If you have damage to your intestines, you may not be able to reabsorb and reuse bile. This can cause you to have more bile in your intestines than you need. If you have this situation, it could be a sign of IBS or SIBO.

You can have the bile levels in your stool tested to check for high levels of bile.

Consuming fiber may help with symptoms. Fiber can bind with bile and potentially help regulate your stool. You want to cut back on your fat consumption. Fats stimulate the production and release of bile.

A low FODMAP diet may also help with a bile acid diarrhea situation.
