Hello and thanks for your medical question on E Health Forum.

The description of the history here indicates the presence of a malabsorption disorder.

You might benefit by undergoing tests to rule out disorders like inflammatory bowel disease, enteritis, etc.

Tests including stool analysis, CT scan might be helpful.

You might consult a gastroenterologist for proper evaluation and treatment of your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
