Gastroenterologist, Surgical Dr. Tapan Shah's  Response
i would agree to the first as it could be bile salt diarrhea or it would be entirely a different pathology. the pathology could be associated to pancreas or psychosis. i would like to further investigate this patient for her reflux and pancreas pathology. for normal endoscopy reflux patient, a 24 Hr esophageal Ph meter is ideal and i guess that could also give us a fair idea
