My father lives 2,500 miles away (little more actually) so its not like I see him much at all to know what is going on, so I was wondering does that sound legit at all?

Will probiotics help? Maybe
Are probiotics enough? Doubtful
Food intolerances, bacteria, yeast can all play a role in a leaky gut - if food is the cause - it needs to be removed to give the gut a chance to heal. After all what is Celiac Disease - ingestion of gluten that causes intestinal permeability - a leaky gut.
Some think that Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) causes leaky gut and that antibiotics and/or probiotics can resolve this. People show improvement with hefty antibiotic courses, but the SIBO returns - repeatedly. Diet needs to be changed along with meds to end this cycle.
Legit - kinda
Full story - not likely
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
"LTES" a Gem
