I need help! I’m not sure if it’s gluten or a fatty intolerance that I have but I can hardly eat anything without having a leaky gut ? even just the smell of fast food can trigger my body, and it can happen up to 3 or 4 times within an hour. I am getting checked for it in April (so far away I know) and it’s always leaky gut never vomiting or anything like that. And it just happens, it’s something I can’t control... this all only started happening in December, I was told celiac but I feel like it’s more then just that.

I am a bit confused- have you been diagnosed with Celiac?  How can you tell you have “ leaky gut”?  I am not sure that is something immediately apparent after eating.  It certainly isn’t triggered by smell as it is a condition where food gets out they the intestinal wall into your body - simple explanation . Do you mean diarrhea?  That is definitely a symptom of Celiac.

If you have been diagnosed as having Celiac, you need to eat a strictly gluten-free diet and give yourself time to heal.  If you have not been tested for it, continue eating some gluten everyday until all testing is complete .

Celiac requires you to be eating gluten to get tested, you should see about getting tested if you can. Damage from celiac can lead to leaky gut, food intolerance issues, food allergies, etc. It has many symptoms but requires you to "eat" the gluten or somehow have gluten particles get into your intestines by some means to have a reaction.....http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

Smell, I reacted so badly to things my body started having me feel nauseated by smells it associated with gluten/making me sick. Like that science experiment where they rung a bell every time they fed a dog so when the bell was rung they could make it salivate at it associated the bell with food....you body can do something with nasusa, and smells if it finds them a common factor in something that makes you sick.....Now days this has passed but I do feel disgusted by certain smells now. In order for a celiac to react to a bakery air, flour has to be airborne, inhaled, trapped in the mucus in your nose/throat then drain into the stomach and make its way to the intestines...this takes while to trigger a actual reaction although I have had it trigger lymph reactions much quicker over intestinal.

True leaky gut...odd term to multiple meanings and causes but you often find that the damaged gut is easily permeated by food leading to multiple food intolerance issues....true nightmare. But with a whole foods gluten free diet with common culprits like dairy, gluten, soy, spices, etc. removed and going to a easy, bland, and whole foods diet you can heal it in a few months with the help of a dietician and supplements. Simple, soft, and stewed to mush meals...make digestion as easy as you can with as little irritants as possible. Keep a food diary to track what foods bother you as everyone is different.
