Has anyone experienced mouth sores due to malabsorption??? I have several and was curious as to why I had them and how to treat them so I went to a medical site and one of the causes of the sores was listed as malabsorption.I just wondered if anyone experienced this as a warning for problems about to arrise.Should I be concerned or am I being too precautious? These sores hurt badly and its hard to eat anything.I know my labs in Dec were acceptable but calcium and iron levels were borderline low. Any advice appreciated.
What was your vitamin A? Vitamin D?

So many things can cause those things. From what I've read even low iron levels can cause them. Stress can cause them!
If you are in pain, you should be concerned. Especially if you are having a hard time eating. I bet your nutritionist would have some great ideas for you! :)

I have experienced mouth sores as well and was told that it is a symptom of malnutrition. What helped ease the pain until they went away was this mouth moisturizer made by Kimberly-Clark. I don't know about you but my mouth had tiny bumps as well as my tongue. Not sure what vitamin I was lacking.
