Does anyone else have an Malabsorption/absorption problems? I am starting to really worry about my weight and do not know what to do. I feel good, not sick, have regular solid bowel movements a couple times a day, have a healthy appitite (eat about 3000+ calories a day, this includes protein shakes), and even exercise a few times a week, but i still cant add any of the weight back that i have lost. I use to weigh 175lbs, and now I am 5'11" 145lbs  and just cant gain any of it back and i am starrting to believe i have an issue with food absorption. Does anyone else have this problem? and are there any natural remidies or vitamins i take to help this? I have been to the doctor's and they just keep telling me that if i feel good to not worry about it, the weight will eventually come back, and there only recommendation is meal replacement shakes and maybe lift some weights.

I have a fat malabsorption probelm, as well as lacking in the enzyme lipase.  I found all this out via a comprehensive stool sample with a Naturopath.  Amazing what they can find there!  I also struggle with fatigue....another side effect of not absorbing all the vitamins and nutrients I put into my body.  I've lost 42 pounds so far, and I don't see it stopping yet.  Of course, I don't eat enough!Since us Crohnies can have damaged intestines, it is very likely that there could be a malabsorption problem.  If your regular doc isn't willing to listen, find another one!
