Bile acid diarrhea is a disease where the bile juices are not able to be processed through the digestive system. It is also known as the BAM(bile acid malabsorption). So, in an individual who is suffering from bile acid diarrhea, there is a large volume of bile acid that is getting into the patient’s large intestine. This leads to the enhancement in the volume of fluid within the system. As a consequence of which, there is an increase in the conduction of the fluid through the patient’s intestine, causing watery stools.

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is a disorder in which there takes place the accumulation of the fats within liver organ. Due to the excessive build-up of fat, there can be inflammation as well as potential damage to the liver organ. This syndrome may also cause liver scarring. There is another disease known as portal hypertension. In this particular syndrome, the patient can have a rise in the pressure taking place in the portal vein.

Some of the symptoms of this portal hypertension include swelling in the abdomen, stomach discomfort, and bleeding taking place within the digestive system.
