63 years suffering from malabsorption of fat. Should I seek any treatment ?

I am 63 year old man. I am fed up with malabsorbtion of fat. I am not able to eat anything prepared using oil. Eventhough my height is 173 cms, my weight is restricted at 50 KGs, since 40years. The doctors whom I approached, advised me not worry but to feel happy that the unnecessary fat is discharged voluntarily, without getting accumulated in the body. What is your opinion? Should I seek any treatment/medication, now, orkeep quite? Please advise.

Hi Varier,

Welcome to HCM.
You have reached the age of 63 without any problem caused by malabsorption of fat, then what is there to worry about?.
The doctors have rightly advised you not to worry about it. Most of the present day diseases are directly related to excessive fat intake. You should certainly consider yourself lucky that nature is taking care of you.
As long as you are otherwise healthy, don't let weight and build bother you.
Wish you all the best.
