It is unclear....: What leaky gut syndrome really is. The term is often used by alternative medicine practitioners and does not usually apply to any particular medical diagnosis. The term comes from the belief that toxins from the gut leak because the wall of the gut is not functioning properly. There are specific tests that analyze absorption so i would try to confirm the diagnosis and then treat accordingly.
