What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

While it may be uncomfortable to talk about, if you experience chronic diarrhea or constipation, fatigue, headaches, difficulty concentrating, acne, rashes, joint pain, or inflammation, it could be a sign that you have leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that impacts the lining of the large and small intestines. With this, gaps between the intestinal walls let bacteria, harmful toxins, and even food particles get into the bloodstream. It's not known what really causes leaky gut syndrome, but risk factors such as poor nutrition, alcohol consumption, lupus, and other autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and even stress could contribute to leaky gut syndrome. At Jarvis Family Medical Services and J Spa, family nurse practitioner Karla Jarvis can help you find relief from the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome. With some diet and lifestyle changes, it may be possible to improve your gut health and relieve symptoms. For more information, contact our Louisville, KY office.

How is Leaky Gut Syndrome Treated?

Because leaky gut syndrome isn't considered a medical condition, there isn't a medical diagnosis. Even so, based on your symptoms, we can help establish the root causes of your issues to help you find relief. We'll start your appointment at our Louisville, KY office with a review of your symptoms, health history, and more to get a well-rounded idea of what could be causing your leaky gut syndrome. From there, we will work to establish the root cause of your leaky gut. It's important to note, that any changes made to assist a leaky gut would focus on treating the underlying cause of the leaky gut. Oftentimes, leaky gut syndrome could be contributed to conditions such as:

  • IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diabetes
  • Food allergies
  • Celiac disease

Any treatments related to these issues may help relieve your leaky gut symptoms. Additionally, changes in your diet, such as avoiding high sugar intake, saturated fats, and animal proteins, may help reduce unhealthy bacteria in the gut, which could relieve symptoms. Some easy ways to improve your overall gut health include eating plenty of fiber, exercising, getting prebiotics and probiotics, limiting alcohol, eating less processed food, and lowering stress levels.

I'm so excited that I made the switch for me and my mother to have Karla Jarvis and associates as our new PCP. From the moment we walked in the office until the time we left, we felt confident in this decision. The staff made us feel so welcomed, the MA and APRN took the time to explain the whole process, and they addressed literally every concern we had. The better part is there was no rush for time. They also explained everything they were doing and why they were doing and I'm glad to have made this choice. Looking forward to improving mine and my mother's health through the hands of Jarvis Family and associates.
