If you suspect malabsorption you reallly need to tell your doc. I have always been told that malabsorption is when you are not getting your required nutrients in your food and yes it can be caused by your transit time. But are you sure you are pooping what you just ate? Can you identify most objects in your poop? (I know gross) but these are signs. Your doc can tell if you are not absorbing your nutrients by doing blood tests to see where your iron, b12, etc. levels are. You will also feel weaker than usual so let him know if you are having those problems.
