What's causing my Malabsorption??

I've had changes in bowel habbits for 2-3 months. Sticky, wet stools. More like 'pudding' thand diarrhea (although I get a bit of diarrhea too).

I've been to the dr. who has completed a number of tests, none of which have revealed anything. These are:

FIT (blood in stool) - neg.
Microbiology - e.coli, salmonella etc. - neg
Parasites in stool - neg
hematology - normal
Celiac - IgA / Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA
Hydrogen test for Lactose Intolerance

I feel weak and tired from this. Anyone have a similar story? I've also lost a bit of weight (5 lbs). I'm a 44 yr old male.

At this point, I'm trying to eat 5 or 6 small meals a day that are easy on the tummy, to see if that makes a difference. Otherwise, I'm at a loss as to what to do.

Thanks for any suggestions....
