liver disease should not cause diarrhea. Fatty liver in particular does not cause diarrhea. If your gallbladder was removed surgically, this can be a cause of diarrhea. There are so many other things that can cause diarrhea, including things in your diet that you can't digest well anymore (example: dairy products). Gluten intolerance. Parasites (diagnosed by stool samples). There is an entity called Microscopic colitis, which can only be diagnosed by biopsies of the colon - make sure your gastroenterologist took random biopsies of the colon. Some medications can cause diarrhea as a side effect. Drinking alcohol can also cause diarrhea.
