The whole concept of "leaky gut" syndrome does not have consensus medical studies backing it up.  The same goes for intestinal candidal overgrowth.  There are many homeopathic providers that suggest its effects, but there are no recommendations for treatment made by any medical governing body.  

Subsequently, there are isolated reports and small studies suggesting a connection between leaky gut syndrome and kidney stones.  Again, I am not able to find nor quote consensus, peer-approved medical literature stating a definitive connection.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
