The Intestinal Permeability (IP) test, which is sometimes referred to as the “leaky gut” test, is a non-invasive method for assessing gastrointestinal mucosal integrity. Damage and inflammation of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract (small and large intestine) is common in people with conditions such as food sensitivity, food allergy, irritable bowel syndrome and dermatological conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, hives and facial flushing.
The IP test is a self-administered test that requires the consumption of small amounts of Lactulose and Mannitol (types of sugars) which come as part of the test kit that we will provide. After consumption a urine sample is collected and sent to the lab for testing. This testing is suitable for patients needing to assess the health of the gut and in those presenting with the above mentioned conditions.
Once your order is complete, you will receive the kit in the mail in 4-7 business days and, using the step by step instructions inside the box, collect the urine sample required and send back to Clinical Labs using the provided reply paid satchel.
Allow 3-4 weeks for the results to be available.
We will email the results to you as soon as we have received them. Should your result be abnormal we suggest that you purchase a Naturopathic booking on-line to discuss, understand your results and devise a gut-healing treatment protocol.
