No, tnvstar, two bowels movements per day, in itself is not a sign of malabsorption. Generally, an overview picture of malasorption includes diarrhea, which is excessive fecal excretion of unformed, soft or loose stools; steatorrhea, which is defined as 'fatty' stools, (in excess of 7g/day fat excreted). Steatorrhea is the hallmark of malabsorption, characterized by foul smelling, pale, bulky, greasy stools. In addition, abdominal bloating and gas often accompany the symptomatology of malabsorption. Usually, sufferers lose weight despite adequate food intake and develop nutritional deficiencies due to defects in digestion, absorption or transport.
