1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Malabsorption can occur from many different causes.
It is extremely important to see your physician concerning malabsorption as a complete physical with proper testing can usually determine the cause. Once the cause is determined then appropriate therapy can be instituted to help the patient recover.

You may try digestive enzymes if the malabsorption is a result of mild pancreatic insufficiency.
Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics

In brief: Maybe

The intestinal tissue is very capable of healing & completely replacing injured membranes.
To do so requires that you find out what has caused the injury that led to poor absorption. If your pancreas does not make enough enzymes for prober digestion/absorption you can take these as a supplement. If you are gluten intolerant and just can't keep away from the bad foods, you may never improve.

In brief: Probable

It depends on the cause for the malabsorption since the cure is dependent on the cause.
