I am pretty sure I have leaky gut syndrome; how do I diagnose this?

In brief: Leaky gut syndrome
You could have a special test for this using lactulose and mannose.
You could also have an IgG test for a panel if foods, and if you react to quite a few of them, you can assume that you do have "leaky gut" or increased permeability of the gut. In my practice we usually just do the IgG panel.

Leaky gut syndrome is not an established medical diagnosis.
If your have gastrointestinal issues i recommend being evaluated by your primary md or gastroenterologist.
