Brief Answer:
Gall bladder dysfunction causes diahhrea for months and requires evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. Gall bladder dysfunction or chronic cholecystitis can cause chronic diarrhea over 3 months. However this condition cannot be confirmed based on a single symptom.

2. There are tests for evaluation of suspected gall bladder conditions like ultrasound scan and gall bladder nuclear scan.

3. You can request your doctor for an ultrasound scan abdomen as a primary investigation to evaluate your gall bladder.

Hope your query is answered.
Please do write back if you have nay doubts.
