Abstract

Objective: To analyze our experience in patients with chronic diarrhea by using a noninvasive transit study that measures gastric emptying as well as small bowel and colonic transit. Material and Methods: Results from 94 consecutive transit tests, for which diarrhea was the main indication, were reviewed and correlated with the final classification of patients as having an organic or nonorganic disorder. Results: Sixty patients were considered to have a nonorganic cause of diarrhea, of whom 15 had previously undergone cholecystectomy. The other 34 patients were considered to have diarrhea on the basis of an organic diagnosis. Gastric emptying was more often rapid in patients with a nonorganic cause (P
