Has anyone looked into the Bile Acid Malabsorption aka BAM Or BAD. Symptoms looks a lot like what we are experiencing with IBS-D. Watery stools, urgency, bowel inconsistency, pain in lower abdomen. I would be trying out the treatment drugs if i had the insurance. If anyone looked into it please let us know?

Yeah theres a lot of threads on that condition here. Lots of us have tried the common meds for it including welchol or cholestyramine. Seems to help some so youll probably have to try it to know for yourself. Wish there were a way to know before buying though. Good luck.
