Habba Syndrome in Children?

Habba Syndrome is a combination of a dysfunctional gall bladder and chronic diarrhea. People with Habba Syndrome experience frequent loos bowl movements as many as three or more per day for several months. These symptoms normally occur immediately after meals. There is no abnormal pain associated with Habba Syndrome aside from any normal discomfort related to bowl movements. What about Habba Syndrome in children?
Is it possible for the syndrome to affect little kids too?

I watched a show on the Health Discovery Channel last night about a homebound diarrhea sufferer. She was cured by a Dr. Habba in N.J. He calles it the Habba Syndrome.

If you think your children may have this syndrome they can have a scan of the gallbladder. You'll want an HIDA scan. "HIDA scan is an imaging procedure that helps your doctor tracks the production and flow of bile from your liver to your small intestine. Bile is a fluid produced by your liver that helps your digestive system break down fats in the foods you eat."

Not many children are affected by Habba Syndrome so there's not much information on the web.
