Dr Oz: Intestinal Permeability Test For Leaky Gut Syndrome
Dr. Oz introduced the audience to several women who are all on different medications that treat different symptoms that happen to be the same symptoms for Leaky Gut Syndrome. All of the women said the medicine they are taking has not been helping their symptoms but they have never been diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Could they be suffering from Leaky Gut Syndrome and not even know it?
Dr. Oz gave them all the Intestinal Permeability Test to help them determine if they have the illness. The test involved a drink which includes small molecules and big molecules. After the women drank the drink, Dr. Oz said he would test their urine to see how many of each size molecule were able to get through the wall of the intestines. He said if too many big molecules were able to get through, then he would diagnose the person with Leaky Gut Syndrome.
After drinking the drinks and taking the test, Dr. Oz was able to determine that three of the seven women tested positive for Leaky Gut Syndrome and they were all a bit relieved that they can now treat it properly and get relief from their symptoms.
