Testing for Leaky Gut caused by Candida

Leaky Gut Syndrome Diagnosis – Intestinal Permeability

Candida will cause Intestinal permeability.  If you want to test for this problem then this is the way to do it.

To diagnose Leaky Gut use this most widely used test to date. The test I am referring to is the Intestinal Permeability Test.
Intestinal permeability is another term used to describe Leaky Gut or permeability of the intestinal lining.
This test works by having you ingest two different indigestible sugar molecules. One sugar molecule is small enough that it easily passes through even a healthy intestinal lining. The other is large enough that it should not be able to pass through a health intestinal lining.
After ingesting the test drink, you then submit a urine sample which is them analyzed to look for the presence of these two sugar molecules.
If only one is present then this indicates that you do not have Leaky Gut. However, if both are found then this is an indication that you do.
This simple test is available through diagnostic laboratories such as Genova Diagnostics in the USA or Australian Reference Laboratories in Australia.
