The Leaky Gut Syndrome Test also referred to as the ‘intestinal permeability test’ is a precise, non-invasive test for evaluating the quality of the lining of your small and large intestines. The test involves a urine sample following the ingestion of a sugar solution containing two non-toxic, non-metabolised sugars Lactulose and Mannitol.
With normal intestinal health these two sugars are too large to pass through your intestinal wall and should be excreted via your faeces. The presence of these sugars in your urine indicates that these sugars have passed through your intestinal wall and into your bloodstream where they have been excreted via your kidneys.
The results of this test will accurately indicate the presence of Leaky Gut Syndrome and its severity.
The Leaky Gut Syndrome Test Kit contains a full set of instructions and all equipment required to provide your urine sample for testing. This included express post to the testing pathology in Melbourne.
Once we receive your test results from pathology we will analyse them and provide you with a personalised treatment plan containing lifestyle and dietary advice, strategies to address any underlying causes, recommended nutritional supplementation advice to repair Leaky Gut Syndrome and a long term plan to maintain good intestinal health.
