I have periodontal disease, hypoglycemia, gluten intolerance. They believe leaky gut is caused by my eating gluten I have IgG antibodies to every food I've ever eaten, I was tested yesterday because they think I'm becoming diabetic.
I am not a doctor so can only ask questions and help you find an answer...
IMO these are all related and dependent on the foods you are eating. Have you been given the protocol to heal the leaky gut?? Have you been given a list of foods that support the gut while it heals???
I eat to keep a healthy gut and prevent leaky gut. I would expect you would need the protocol for healing instead. Maybe someone can point you to information, or google it. Healing leaky guts is a common problem. It is all food related. Like eat real foods, support the gut with probiotics and prebiotics.
Obviously elminating gluten would be prudent and Im sure you must do that.
I can't go on a date, or hiking, I'm eating chicken pot pies right now, shoving it down with a candy bar to try to stop the problem. I will repeat this right before I go to work. It is every hour of every day. It keeps me from sleeping. I'm at the end of the rope and need to find the cause.
Im confused, are these pot pies gluten free?? And Im confused about how a candy bar helps?
Gum disease is also a symptiom of an unhealthy body-- in Dr Lins DMD book he is all for eating high quality foods to support the gums.
The first dr I saw said it was probably aldosterone that keeps me from retaining sodium. It is treated with a small dose of steroids and she refused to put me on. The second dr thought I have diabetes insipidus from a head injury I had as a kid. In getting tested the phlebotomist hand slipped and left me with a painful nerve injury.
"a disease in which the secretion of or response to the pituitary hormone vasopressin is impaired, resulting in the production of very large quantities of dilute urine, often with dehydration and insatiable thirst." Have you had this since a head injury? Or al your life?, or is this new?
Something is very wrong and I don't know how to get help.
Do you have a primary to work with? It is a primaries job to sort thru the fiDo you know what to do to heal the gut?
I can only tell you what I do to keep it happy. Your mileage may vary. BUt perhaps you can use the infor to google for ideas and more solutions.
keifir-- milk based probiotics
kombucha--- tea based probiotics
probiotic pills 50 billions per pill, of 5 strains
raw, not pasturized sauerkraut.
Foods that support the microbes: asapragus, jicama, plantains, artichokes.
