I have Bile Acid Malabsorption; suffered chronic diarrhea maybe 6-12 times per day for the last 14 years or so.
Only 2 things have helped.
1, a med called Cholestyramine or Questran. It is a horrifically disgusting powder that you mix with any liquid besides milk, and drink 30-45 minutes before you eat. It DID SOLVE my problem, but to the extreme— it made me constipated and gave me excruciating hemorrhoids.
That was worse than having to be in the toilet constantly.
2, what I do NOW, that has made me need to use the restroom only twice per day: psyllium husk fiber.
It TOTALLY cured me. Literally LIFE CHANGING.
I take three tablespoons per day mixed into a drink, between meals, and my life is normal again finally!
The brands I use are Organic India Psyllium and Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks.
I know this post is old, but I hope the OP sees this, because the psyllium is a miracle for me.
My diet (in case anyone was interested,) is:
2 cups black beans
2 cups fairlife lactose free whole milk
6 oz chicken breast
6 oz 93% lean ground beef
4 hard boiled eggs
2 tbsp olive oil
1 slice of whole grain bread
8 tbsp peanut butter
2 scoops (50g protein) NOW whey protein isolate
1 piece of sugar free chocolate
Lots of water with lemon
About 2900 calories.
I feel fantastic.
I’m 5’11”, and have gone from 247 at 35% body fat to 230 at 25% body fat. I do bodybuilding exercises 6 days a week, no cardio.
