Leaky Gut is due to the increased intestinal permeability of the endoderm during the absorption of nutrients in the small intestine.
Common symptoms include bloating, cramps, constipation, diarrhea, joint pain, and rash. Food allergies, food sensitivities, and a number of other conditions are associated with leaky gut syndrome.
Many factors cause this condition including gluten, antibodies, and medication. Gluten leads to rise of Zonulin and LPS- major players in the creation of Leaky Gut. There are now tests to detect for these factors along with IGG and IGA.
Resolution of leaky gut is critical as a first step in the treatment of decreasing overall bodily inflammation.
