Anyone have malabsorption syndrome?

I have been poke and scan to death these last few months to find a reason for my chronic diarrhea, which has gotten worse the last 4 years. But it's ok I needed to know!

I was just diagnosed with malabsorption syndrome after a 72 hour stool fat showed high levels of fat. Doctor has rule out about every other conditions.
he gave me a prescription for pancrease. Only been on it for a few days with some improvement.

If you have this, what are your symptoms? I have been feeling so bad I was diagnosed with CFS & Fibro.

Could this be the casue?

Re: Anyone have malabsorption syndrome?

Did your doctor check you for celiac spue? My sister suffers from this and she had to shallowed a capsule to get a biopsy of the small bowel. It is a reaction to wheat. oats and barley etc. Go to your search and type in celiac spue and check a sight out. I hope this helps and I know what you go throught I suffer from Crohn's. Good luck and take care geifer

yes I had a biopsy of the small intestine and do not have celiac disease. I had a upper GI and colonoscopy and he did biopsies from top to bottom. He had meation celiac, that is why I agree to a upper GI.
