GetTested’s Leaky Gut Test measures zonulin levels, which, when excessive, are linked to leaky gut syndrome. This condition allows particles like undigested food, toxins, and microbes to penetrate the intestinal barrier and enter the bloodstream. Such breaches can disrupt the immune system, increase bodily inflammation, and potentially lead to various diseases.

Our Leaky Gut Test often accompanies orders for the Celiac Rapid Test and/or the Gut Microbiome Small Test.

Understanding Leaky Gut Syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome occurs when intestines become damaged and overly permeable. Consequently, this condition allows particles like undigested food and bacteria to enter the bloodstream, leading to an immune response. This reaction may trigger various conditions such as hypothyroidism, psoriasis, allergies, and fatigue.

Moreover, if untreated, leaky gut can lead to food intolerances, stomach problems, fatigue, brain fog, skin conditions, and depression. Since many individuals may not realize they have it, testing becomes crucial. Significantly, elevated zonulin levels often indicate leaky gut and are common in allergies, autoimmune diseases, and rheumatism. Therefore, regularly monitoring zonulin levels can help in optimizing overall health.

What is Zonulin?

Zonulin, a protein produced by intestinal and liver cells, plays a critical role in controlling intestinal permeability. It regulates the "tight junctions" between digestive tract wall cells, allowing nutrients to enter the bloodstream. However, if these junctions suffer damage, large protein molecules might infiltrate, potentially leading to inflammation.

Who Would Benefit from the Leaky Gut Test?

Our Leaky Gut Test, which measures zonulin levels, is particularly suitable for those experiencing intestinal issues. Additionally, for more complex gut issues, we recommend our comprehensive Gut Microbiome XL test. This test not only assesses the presence of leaky gut but also evaluates the status of your gut flora, including bacteria and fungal overgrowth (such as Candida), and digestive function.

    Growing up, I had always been the person with an 'iron stomach' - able to devour any culinary delight without a second thought. So, when I began facing digestive woes, irregular energy levels, and even cognitive fog, it was both baffling and alarming. Numerous visits to medical professionals yielded a mosaic of non-specific advice, from "maybe it's just stress" to "perhaps you should get more sleep." Nothing seemed to resonate with the actual changes I was feeling within. A well-read colleague suggested exploring the idea of a 'leaky gut,' a concept I had never ventured into. Out of sheer desperation and curiosity, I sought out and found the Leaky Gut Test. From the outset, the journey was comforting. The test kit, which was delivered promptly, showcased an exemplary level of detail, ensuring even someone medically naive like myself could administer it without hitches. The entire procedure felt more interactive than clinical, making it less daunting. When the results arrived, they were an amalgamation of clarity, validation, and education. They didn't just stop at confirming a compromised gut lining; they delved deep, explaining the possible implications and underlying causes of such a condition. The insights were startling; highlighting how a disrupted gut could potentially ripple out, affecting a myriad of bodily functions, even ones I hadn't considered. With the data in hand, I took actionable steps. Partnering with a nutritionist, I embarked on a tailored healing regimen. Slowly but steadily, the fog lifted. Digestive episodes reduced, energy levels stabilized, and the constant mental fatigue began to wane. Reflecting back, I see the Leaky Gut Test not just as a diagnostic tool, but as a beacon - illuminating the path back to holistic health. For anyone submerged in the quagmire of unexplained health anomalies, this could be the guiding light you're desperately seeking. :) :) :)
