Is bile acid diarrhoea underdiagnosed in patients with Crohn’s disease?
Definitely, yes. Unfortunately for patients with Crohn’s disease, there is a poor relationship between their symptoms and intestinal inflammation, and a considerable proportion of patients’ present symptoms that are not due to the inflammation but rather to bile acid diarrhoea. These patients could benefit from this diagnosis.

Response to bile salt sequestrant therapy was not dependent on SeHCAT retention values.
