Hello and welcome!
Any grade of malabsorption can be harmful to the body.Malabsoprtion syndrome can lead to multiple nutritional deficiencies at the same time. Deficiency of calcium affects bone growth, density and strength. Iron, folic acid or vitamin B12 deficiencies can cause different types of anemia which further affect growth and development. During protein malnutrition bone growth is largely halted and existing bone is utilized by the body as a source of protein. If there is associated vitamin D deficiency then bone growth may be further affected. There is no particular cut off which says that bone growth will be affected at a particular grade of malnutrion or malabsoprtion.Treat it as early as possible. Hope it helps.
