Intestinal Gas Guide
Weight loss or diarrhea are symptoms that might happen because your digestion is impaired, a medical problem that is termed malabsorption. Malabsorption may cause either persistent diarrhea, weight loss, yellow and oily stools with an exaggerated foul odor, or a combination of these symptoms. These symptoms may be related to your gas complaint.
Malabsorption is a serious problem because it prevents you from getting adequate nutrition.
Symptoms that suggest malabsorption require an evaluation by your physician.
