Diarrhoea and link with Gall Bladder Disease


Posted by Cannux

Recently I was informed of a rare disease that had diarrhoea as it's main symptom. A US doctor discovered that the bile from the Gall Bladder is responsible and a syndrome was named after him but I can't remember his name. This was recently featured on "Diagnosis" on the Discovery Channel. Any information would be appreciated.

I remember that episode! I love "Mystery Diagnosis". The condition is called Habba Syndrome, named after Dr. Saad Habba who discovered it. Hope that helps point you in the right direction.
And here is the Doctor's website which tells all about the disease! http://habbasyndrome.com/_wsn/page2.html
