Could you have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Could you have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Are you suffering from chronic ill health? IBS, chronic indigestion or reflux?   Food intolerance or allergy?   A Skin condition?  An autoimmune condition?   Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia?

New evidence suggests Leaky gut is very likely to be the reason why.

Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is the name given to a condition in which the ability of the small intestine wall to keep out large and undesirable molecules is reduced. Hence the name, as substances that are normally kept outside the body and within the intestines, are "leaking" across the intestinal wall and into the body as a whole

Leaky Gut Syndrome is hardly ever tested for or diagnosed by doctors in general practice but there are vast amounts of research implicating altered permeability of the intestinal wall in a large number of illnesses. To illustrate this, the following definition for leaky gut syndrome is taken from Allergy Induced Autism a UK based Autism charity.

Leaky Gut Syndrome is "an increase in permeability of the intestinal mucosa to luminal macromolecules, antigens and toxins associated with inflammatory degenerative and/or atrophic mucosal damage".

 

 What happens when you have a Leaky Gut Syndrome?

 A leaky gut results in many problems that affect the whole body:

Gastrointestinal SymptomsIrritable Bowel Syndrome   The most obvious problems resulting from a leaky gut are probably digestive symptoms like bloating, flatulence and abdominal discomfort.  If left untreated increased acid is produced in the stomach causing chronic indigestion, ulcers and ultimately reflux.   However leaky gut is a cause of chronic inflammation leading to…

Autoimmune disorders such as;

  • Allergy
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Vasculitis
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Colitis
  • Addison's Disease
  • Lupus
  • Thyroiditis

 

It is also implicated in Chronic Fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia and even Cancer.
