Hello, chaitanya.krrish,
I am assuming that when you say malabsorption, you are not
digesting foods properly. I am not sure if the doctors diagnosed
malabsorption after doing x-rays and blood tests. Lot of conditions
can be associated with malabsorption such as Crohn's disease,
Celiac disease, Pancreatic problems, Tuberculosis involving the
intestine or other diseases that can affect the small bowel.
Hope you have been tested for all of these.
Gallbladder polypis usually asymptomatic and generally does
not need treatment. If that is very large and occurs in a very
elderly, then we advocate removal because of chance of cancer.
Muscle cramps can be due to potassium deficiency along with
magnesium. Pain in the shoulder could be bursitis or arthritis
and if you have a pinched nerve it could radiate.
I am in favor of taking the supplements that you mention.
I would also recommend a good super B-Complex vitamin daily.
I want you to be tested for Pernecious Anemia due to vit-B12 deficiency.
That can give you brainfog .
If you have not had your stool tested for ova and parasites, get that done
along with a complete metabolic panel of blood tests, thyroid function
tests and a complete blood count.
I wish you well.
