Leaky Gut – Intestinal Antigenic Permeability Screen




Leaky gut, or as we refer to this at Depke Wellness, leaky small intestines, can be recognized as a long term destruction to the lining of your small intestines. This response is due to a breakdown in the musosal lining of your small intestines, leading to intestinal permeability. Simply put, this will most often allow whole food particles to transport from your small intestines into you blood, leading to and autoimmune type reaction and the other functional challenges below.

This will often lead to:

  • Malabsorbtion
  • Food sensitivity
  • Allergies
  • Autoimmunity
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Brain degeneration
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • and so much more…

This test will will review the areas below as markers for leaky gut:

  • Actomyosin IgA
  • Occludin/Zonulin IgG
  • Occludin/Zonulin IgA
  • Occludin/Zonulin IgM
  • Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) IgG
  • Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) IgA
  • Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) IgM
