I don't know if this is related or not.   I just had a stool sample come back that showed increase in fat in stool.  We've eliminated most things except bile salts?   I don't know what that is.   Anyway he wants me to try Questran for my diarrhea.  I tried it years ago to no avail but I'm trying it again. So far it's causing a lot of abdominal disress and a sore lower back which I usually get when my intestines are acting up.
