At Physio Logic, we leverage intestinal permeability testing to evaluate the strength of the tight junctions of your gut lumen, aka the lining of your GI tract. When the gut lining is permeable, food particles and other proteins can pass through the gut lining triggering an immune response and inflammatory reaction in the body. You may also have heard this referred to as “leaky gut” testing. This noninvasive, at home urine test measures intestinal permeability, or how ‘leaky’ your gut is. The test involves ingestion of a sugar-solution, followed by a urine sample that provides valuable insights about the integrity of your gut lining. Once we receive the results, we work with you to heal, seal and strengthen your gut lining through diet, supplementation, and lifestyle changes.
