Intestinal Permeability Assessment for Leaky Gut

How the Intestinal Permeability Test Checks for Leaky Gut:

This test involves taking in two sugars, lactulose and mannitol. Lactulose should not be able to be absorbed through your gut wall. The test then analyzes your urine for the presence of those two sugars. If lactulose is present in your urine, then it has leaked through the gut wall into your blood. It has been carried to your kidneys for excretion through the urine. Read more
