Allergies, Intolerances, Leaky Gut, And...

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, ok so I am a bit confused ! So I did a food sensitivity test that tested positive for the following IgG antibodies/food sensitivities: High Sensitivity to Whole Milk & Whole Eggs; Medium Sensitivity to Wheat (non-gluten) & Cocoa Bean; and Slight Intolerance to Gluten, Rice, Shell Fish, Nut mix, Soya Bean, & Yeast. So, What does this mean? Does that mean I shouldn't eat these things? Also, What is the difference between "allergy" and "sensitivity" ?

I have also been hearing a lot about "leaky gut" syndrome. What is it, and is it common? The symptoms are so many of the symptoms that I have, but then again those symptoms are common to MANY things :blink:

Is this something that a colonoscopy and biopsy would pick up on? (I had a colonoscopy the other day, and they did 3 biopsies)

Thanks, guys :)

I am not qualified to respond to your questions about allergy and sensitivity. I have only found that omitting foods and food groups has helped by trial and error and I learn A LOT on this site. I have been dealing with my second bout of Leaky Gut in the two yrs I've been gluten intolerant. Natural nutritional supplements from my Chiropractor/Nutritionist help me get rid of my sensitivities faster before.

The best explanation for Leaky Gut is on a site posted by Meline recently:

http://www.leakygut.co.uk/About%20Leaky%20Gut.htm

It actually recommended foods to help heal the gut, which I had never seen.

I doubt that a colonoscopy or biopsy would pick it up or that a regular MD would even recognize the term. The people on this forum are your best consultants!

Good luck!

Naturopathic doctors use a simple test to diagnose leaky gut. You drink a solution of water and 2 sugars(I think mannulose is one; I can't remember the other). One is a large molecule sugar and the other is a small molecule. Then you collect all urine for several hours and it gets mailed to a diagnostic lab where they check the ratio between the 2 sugars. An elevated ratio indicates leaky gut. If you have gut permeability issues the small molecule will tend to leak out and therefore cause an elevated ratio of large molecule sugars in the urine. The higher the ratio the worse the gut permeability issue. Glutamine is sometimes proscribed as it is a building block for the intestinal membrane. Of course, it always best to diagnose the cause of the leaky gut and address the root of the problem.Hope this helps. I've been dealing with this issue for years.
