Clinical features can be grouped into those suggestive of:

  • macronutrient malabsorption
  • micronutrient malabsorption

Clues in the history include:

  • medication - alcohol, neomycin, cholestyramine, metformin, and antimetabolites e.g. methotrexate
  • previous gastrointestinal surgery
  • health of siblings and parents - impaired growth compared to other family members suggests chronic malabsorption
