The following tests and procedures may help you determine what’s causing Leaky Gut Syndrome:

  • Online Self-assessments – Self-assessments, such as the Candidiasis Self-assessment and the Magnesium Assessment can help you determine some of the root cause(s) of your chronic conditions. Learn more about Self-assessments.
  • Intestinal Permeability Assessment – This test is administered by a healthcare professional, and it involves drinking a liquid solution of mannitol and lactulose. Urine is then collected over a 6-hour period. If high levels of both molecules are found, it indicates a leaky gut condition. If low levels of both molecules are found, it indicates general malabsorption of all nutrients.
