Malabsorption

You might be making all the right choices in terms of what you eat and what you drink, but if you are struggling with digestive health problems then your body can’t reap the benefits. When gut problems interfere with your body’s ability to absorb the nutrients you need then it’s called malabsorption. If you’ve been looking for a gut health doctor near you, we can help! The Gut Authority wants to help restore gut health and get your digestive tract back in order. Call our office or visit us today!

What Is Malabsorption?

The digestion process begins in your mouth and continues in your stomach. By the time it reaches your small intestine, it’s broken down enough so that your intestine can absorb the nutrients you need. Malabsorption happens when poor digestive health interferes with this process. Some common symptoms of malabsorption include:

  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Excess gas
  • Bulky stools
  • Fat and/or mucus in stools
  • Problems being able to focus
  • Weight loss and muscle mass
  • Chronic fatigue and overall weakness

Your exact symptoms can also be a good indicator of what type of nutrients your body isn’t absorbing. Do you, like many patients, fear colon cancer??? Most of the time people fear having colon cancer, it ends up being something such as malabsorption or similar medical disorders, which are fixable if taken care of! That’s why we’ll take a comprehensive look at your symptoms and overall health so that we can get to the root of the issue. 

What Causes Malabsorption?

Most cases are caused by poor gut health and poor diet choices. However, there can be other causes such as lactose intolerance, Celiac Disease, Whipple Disease, Short Bowel Syndrome, and some medications. In a few cases, malabsorption can be caused by parasites or other concerns, diseases, and disorders.
