Intestinal Permeability Test (also known as Leaky Gut Test) | Cyrex Labs Array #2
Leaky gut affecting your health?
In many people, gluten and other food proteins cause inflammation in the gut, which eventually leads to intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut”. Leaky gut allows undigested food particles, bacteria, and other materials to enter the bloodstream where they can trigger the immune system creating allergies, sensitivities, and inflammation in other parts of the body.
There are several different ways leaky gut can occur:
- Breakdown of intestinal cells
- Loosening of the junctional between cells
- Bacterial infections
How can the leaky gut test help me?
This test supplied by Cyrex Labs (array #2) pinpoints which of these is causing leaky gut so your practitioner knows what to specifically target for faster and more efficient gut repair. This test can also be used to monitor the intestinal support used by your doctors. As the leaky gut improves, you should see an improvement in your test results.
