Hello, I went through your query, Malabsorption syndrome refers to a number of disorders in which the intestine can't adequately absorb certain nutrients into the bloodstream. Causes could be from bile related, pancreatic, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, etc.. other genetic causes. Treatment depends on the cause. Losing 15kg in 6months is a significant weight loss. You need to investigated thourouly to find the cause, please consult a gastroenterologist.
