Gut Barrier Panel Bloodspot Home Test




The Gut Barrier Panel Bloodspot Home Test checks for  leaky gut  which occurs across a spectrum and includes the following gatekeeper markers: Candida, Zonulin and Occludin. For each marker IgG 1-4 /C3d in addition to IgA 1 and 2 is measured.

We measure and use any candida overgrowth in the stomach/dysbiosis as a precursor to leaky gut occurrence
Is a marker of intestinal permeability, otherwise known as leaky gut. If a patient has elevated Zonulin levels, the normal regulation of the tight junctions is compromised.

Is a marker of tight junction stabilization and optimal barrier function. Elevated occludin indicates that the tight junctions are breaking down.

Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are a major structural component of the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria. Elevated levels of antibody against LPS may be indicative of Leaky Gut Syndrome and other gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases.
