Is 2 bowel movements per day a sign of malabsorption?
I used to have 1 bowel movement a day but nowadays I get 2 bowel movements in a day. Is it bad?
No its not. Symptoms of malabsorption include weight loss, undigested food in the stools, unintentional weight loss, weakness, and so forth. Probably is just an increase in digestion. If you have any of these other symptoms, consult a doctor. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/IBS-I … Treatments
No, every person's body is different. If you have no other symptoms, I wouldn't worry, but why not contact your doctor just to make sure.
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.
