Hello and welcome to e health forum.

You have not mentioned what symptoms and issues you have been facing, which does not help to make a independent assessment.

If you have any doubts, regarding your diagnosis, and you are not happy with your current doctor, you should seek a second opinion, with another gastroenterologist. If not done earlier, a endoscopy procedure and intestinal biopsy, should be done, which can help to diagnose or rule out malabsorption syndromes.

I hope this helps
