Leaky Gut Test - Intestinal Permeability Test

The Leaky Gut 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 Leaky Gut test involves a urine sample following the ingestion of a sugar solution containing two non-toxic, sugars Lactulose and Mannitol.

With normal intestinal health the Lactulose proves too large to pass through your intestinal wall and should be excreted via your faeces. Mannitol can be absorbed but only in small amounts. Elevation 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 the intestinal permeability test will accurately indicates the presence of Leaky Gut Syndrome and its severity.
