Leaky Gut Syndrome

Recommended Posts

In my reading journey I came across this chapter on line from a published book which I thought gave a very good description of leaky gut syndrome that I thought I would share with those interested:

Leaky Gut Syndrome: The Systemic Consequences of Faulty Digestion

Articles - Leaky Gut Syndrome Articles

By Elizabeth Lipski, PhD, CCN

(Chapter taken from Digestive Wellness, 3rd Edition McGraw Hill)

"The gut is a major, potential portal of entry into the body for foreign antigens. Only its intact mucosal barrier protects the body from foreign antigen entry and systemic exposure."

--Russell Jaffe, M. D., ELISA/ACT Clinical Update 2, No. 1 (January 1992).

That is a fantastic article. Thank you for posting. Now I wish I could find a health care professional who actually understands how to test for and treat food sensitivities! I am going to bring this to my next appointment.

It seems sort of like it's been abridged. And while I agree it's a good description of the basic condition, the constant shilling of products (OTC tests, natural products, etc.) reduces my overall rating of the website.

Also, I don't know that all the authors statements have been fully backed up in terms of connections to other diseases. Some of my reading may be out of date, though.


2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable

3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG

4/2010 Negative biopsy

5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)

5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

I wasn't intending for this to be taken as a definitive scholarly article, merely as a good description for newbies especially of the condition and how the transportation works and why it causes us so many problems. As for the advertising, I guess I am pretty much immune to it, but it's how even Scott pays his bills ;)
