Brief Answer: Endoscopy Detailed Answer: Thanks for the reply TO know whether or not you have absorptive defects you need to go to a gastroenterologist for an edoscopy and biopsy of your intestine and stomach. A very good indirect test would be to assess your average dietary intake and get your levels of Vitamins, Iron, Protein etc done. I would like to add here these diseases are very rare and most of them will be diagnosed by adulhood You might be feeling stressed due to daily routine activities like work, home, relationships, etc. Please dont skip meals, get adequate sleep and take some time off to do things you love. Exercising daily is the best way to relax, it calms you down. I hope I was of help, I am sorry for the short delay in my reply I was on call at my hospital Regards
