Diarrhea, intestinal: In leaky gut syndrome the lining of the intestine fails to carry out the role of protecting the body. The lining of gut is normally equipped with layers of immune cells as well as mechanisms to deal with changes in the environment in the intestine. When the barrier effect of the lining of the intestinal mucosa is lost, thousands of bacteria and fungi staying at the gut will cause many symptoms.
