Leaky Gut Syndrome
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
The small intestine digests and absorbs food while acting as a barrier to the absorption of toxic compounds. When the lining of the small bowel becomes damaged, the intestine is permeable to toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles. These toxic compounds may enter your bloodstream to cause even more damage. This increased intestinal permeability is called Leaky Gut Syndrome.
What is the Sucrose Breath Test for Leaky Gut Syndrome?
The sucrose breath test is a tool developed for medical researchers to assess the presence of Leaky Gut Syndrome. It is a non-invasive, low risk, accurate and fast test that uses sucrose (common table sugar) to challenge the gut. We make it easy for you to test for Leaky Gut Syndrome by providing sucrose breath test kits that are designed for home use.
Who can benefit from being tested for Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome are numerous and diverse. They can range from gluten intolerance, muscle cramps and pains, bloating, heartburn and constipation, to fever, depression and anxiety. If your physician has been unable to identify the root cause of your symptoms, the sucrose breath test could be beneficial to you.
