  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    .  Edema  Hypoalbuminemia from chronic protein malabsorption or from loss of protein into the intestinal lumen causes peripheral edema.  Extensive obstruction of the lymphatic[slideshare.net] One or more boratory alterations (increased erythrocyte sedimentaion rate, anemia, hypokalemia, and low serum albumin vel) were found in 62% of patients with organic diarrhea[doi.org] Waldman et al. [ 77 ] reported the first cases of such intestinal lymphangiectasia, associated with edema and hypoproteinemia (along with hypoalbuminemia and hypogammaglobulinemia[pubs.sciepub.com]
