What is Malabsorption Syndrome?

Description of the disease:

Malabsorption syndrome is a condition in which the body cannot fully absorb nutrients from the food entering the gastrointestinal tract.


  • Malabsorption syndrome can be caused by various reasons, such as celiac disease, Crohn's disease, diabetes, and other gastrointestinal disorders.


  • Symptoms of malabsorption syndrome can include abdominal bloating, diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, anemia, and others.


  • The causes of malabsorption syndrome may be related to damage to the intestinal wall, inadequate production of enzymes, or impaired absorption of nutrients.


Various tests, including blood tests, ultrasound of the gastrointestinal tract, colonoscopy, and other methods, are used to diagnose malabsorption syndrome.


Treatment of malabsorption syndrome may include dietary changes, taking medications to improve nutrient absorption, as well as treating the underlying condition that caused the syndrome.


  • Prevention of malabsorption syndrome involves proper nutrition, treatment of the underlying condition, timely medical attention, and regular check-ups.


Gastroenterologist is the physician who treats malabsorption syndrome.
