Bile Acid Malabsorption: In normal intestinal function, bile is released from the gall bladder into the intestine to facilitate fat digestion. Most of the bile components are absorbed by the small intestine and recycled back to the liver. In some conditions like Crohn's disease, celiac disease, and after intestinal surgery and radiation treatment, bile acids in bile are not absorbed efficiently. This can cause diarrhea, frequent, watery stools, flatulence, bloating, etc. Over time, this also significantly reduces the absorption of important fat soluble nutrients and phytochemicals.
