Leaky Gut Syndrome


I have taken lots of antibiotics over the past 6 months -- including real strong stuff over a 7 day period (ceftriaxone injectable).

I've been weak....nauseous....have very dry skin and mouth and despite an advid fitness buff... I can no longer work out for more than 30 minutes before I get shaky and start dry heeving.

I just read about "Leaky Gut Syndrome" and I made the connect between my symptoms and the cause of this disease (excessive use of antibiotics .....#2 was H. Pylori.. which I had this summer as well.)

Could I have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

How do I test for this .. considering I've been tested for every disease under the sun?

Can this condition be cured?

Please help.

Re: Leaky Gut Syndrome

If you have been taking extensive antibiotics, it is possible that your good intenstinal flora (bacteria) is out of whack.

I would recommend a good probiotic and take about 5-10 billion CFU a day.

Oh yeah...DRINK ENOUGH WATER! It has helped me immensely. About 1 ounce of pure water for every pound of body weight.

180lb. active person would need to drink 90oz. of water a day, or ~6oz per hour for a 16-hour waking day.

Re: Leaky Gut Syndrome

Read Rot & Rust on the internet, just do a search. Sounds like a crazy name, but this website is scientific and explains alot of digestive problems. I too have symptoms of leaky gut and am now taking high quality probiotics, along with other dietary modifications. You may need digestive enzymes. I took antiobiotics for lyme disease and now 17 months later, still working on getting well from the drugs. I also had my mercury fillings removed, check for more information on that relationship.
