We support a wide range of chronic autoimmune conditions, from inflammatory bowel disease to Sjogren’s Syndrome. Many, if not all, originate in the gut, and leaky gut syndrome contributes to worsening autoimmune symptoms. Read on to learn more about the signs of leaky gut syndrome and how our autoimmune specialists help find solutions so that you can reach your health goals.

What is leaky gut?


Leaky gut syndrome refers to your intestine’s permeability, or the ability to allow particles to pass through the digestive lining into your bloodstream. This gut barrier is supposed to protect your body from harmful toxins, blocking their path into the bloodstream; however, a leaky gut occurs when the digestive tract lining is weakened and unwanted substances are allowed to pass through, resulting in uncomfortable, frustrating symptoms. There are many possible culprits of leaky gut, from a diet filled with dairy, gluten, and processed foods to hormonal shifts, cortisol levels, certain medications, insulin resistance, and neurologic factors.

Signs of Leaky Gut Syndrome

So now you know what leaky gut is, how exactly can it manifest? Here are a few of the common signs of leaky gut syndrome:

  1. Gas, bloating
  2. Constipation
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Abdominal pain
  5. Skin rashes, irritation
  6. Joint pain
  7. Low energy

If you have any of these chronic symptoms or are also struggling with an autoimmune condition, help is available! You don’t have to suffer alone with these symptoms because you have options when it comes to getting answers and support- that’s where we come in!
