Leaky Gut 101: Symptoms, Solutions, and Your Path to Healing

Leaky Gut, a term gaining prominence in the world of gut health, refers to a condition where the lining of the digestive tract becomes more permeable, allowing undigested particles to pass through and trigger inflammatory responses. In this blog post, we'll delve into the concept of leaky gut, explore common symptoms, discuss solutions for healing. Additionally, we'll emphasize the importance of the GI MAP gut test for a comprehensive understanding of your gut health and offer 1:1 support from our Lead Dietitian.

Understanding Leaky Gut

The intestinal lining acts as a barrier, regulating the absorption of nutrients and preventing harmful substances from entering the bloodstream. When this barrier becomes compromised, it can lead to leaky gut, causing a cascade of symptoms and contributing to broader health issues.

Common Symptoms of Leaky Gut

  • Digestive Distress: Persistent bloating, gas, and irregular bowel movements.
  • Food Sensitivities: Developing sensitivities to certain foods, especially those once well-tolerated.
  • Fatigue: Chronic fatigue and low energy levels.
  • Joint Pain: Inflammation triggered by leaky gut may contribute to joint pain.
  • Skin Issues: Conditions like eczema or acne may worsen.
  • Autoimmune Disorders: Some autoimmune conditions are linked to leaky gut.
