Malabsorption syndrome is a medical condition where the patient can not absorb important nutrients, including proteins, fats, and vitamins.

Malabsorption can be caused by conditions such as celiac's disease, Crohn's disease, and intestinal damage. It can also be passed down through genetics.

Malabsorption syndrome for most people is curable with the help of nutrient supplements. But in some very rare cases, malabsorption can be fatal, and the patient will have a shorter lifespan.
With modern medicine constantly improving, hopefully, there will be a cure in the future

A semi-rare medical issue in which the patient cannot absorb sufficient amounts of nutrients, including proteins, fats, and vitamins. It can be caused by conditions such as celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, lactose intolerance, and intestinal damage.
Malabsorption can sometimes cause major stomach migraines and leave the patient hungry for hours.
Most people with Malabsorption Syndrome can survive by taking nutrient supplements and so forth.

But in some highly rare cases, Malabsorption Syndrome can be fatal, the patient may only have a few years before their brain and vital organs shut down due to lack of nutrients. As long as modern medicine keeps improving and patients keep on top of their diet, they can hopefully come out of this alive.
