Leaky Gut Syndrome and Diagnostic Testing

Today we are discussing diagnostic testing as it relates to Leaky Gut Syndrome. Though in previous broadcasts we have discussed Leaky Gut Syndrome at length as it relates to a host of illness including obesity, diabetes, and autoimmune disease, we have not discussed how this entity is officially diagnosed. Today we will discuss different tests on the market but also why we use the Cyrex Array 2, a novel test for Leaky Gut Syndrome, in our clinic on a regular basis.
Please enjoy, and send us your questions.  Please forward us any questions here on our website or go to our Power Health Facebook page http://powerhealthreno.com/Facebook
