Recommended Posts

HI Everyone

I was diagnosed over a year ago, been gluten free ever since, no accidents I am aware of, was seeing a great Naturopath, I have many food intolerances (egg, nightshades, soy, sugars quite a few fruits, artificial colours and more. I also suffer from constipation or the runs on and off. I am taking quite a lot of supplements, my naturopath thinks I am on the way to recovery, she said I still have to work on the repair of my gut and have a few allergies present but she doesnt need to see my regularly now, just wants me to continue with my supplements a prebiotic mix, lectin control, protein digestive aid and a couple of supplements to help my hormones. She will see me again for a consult in 12 months.

I have felt much better, then got hit bad with Pneumonia. I am on two lots of very strong antibiotics and now my gut is back to severe runs. I hate been on antibitoics, I am also taking a probiotic whilst on the antibiotics.

Could I have leaky gut, can leaky gut be tested by a GP?

Thanks

Lisa

Antibiotics will play havoc with your gut regardless of the use of probiotics, unfortunately. They can limit the damage, but in an already damaged gut it is hard to keep things in balance. Since it seems like you can do dairy, eat tons of yogurt (plain yogurt, not the sugared up kind), keep up the probiotics and wait and see. It could well be that once you are through with the antibiotics things will return to normal. Bad luck about the pneumonia, though. I don't know about testing for leaky gut; but if there is any I would wait until you have finished your course of antibiotics and stabilized a bit.

Thanks for the reply, I am not doing much whilst sick, just came across this a few posts and now curious if I could have leaky gut.

Antibiotics are horrible. Unfortunately dairy is also out, missed that one of my list of intolerance's. I am taking a pre and pro biotic and zinc, C, and a few other supplements, hoping to try help as much as I can.

Thanks
