Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, The fatigue could be due to anemia. The abdominal bloating, loose stools along with anemia could indicate malabsorption syndrome. There are different causes for malabsorption and celiac disease is one of the causes. Discuss with your doctor about this possibility and get yourself tested for celiac disease. If it is negative, then other tests for malasorption including those for intestinal parasites should be done. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
