There's one absorption test for leaky gut syndrome. Treatment depends on the cause.

Thanks for the info.  What is the absorption test called?

The standard test for leaky gut syndrome is the mannitol and lactulose test.

I do NOT recommend ordering some online tests.

Leaky gut syndrome is usually a result of some well known disorder like celiac disease or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or Crohn's disease etc.

Thank you so much for the information.  Now we can ask our Dr. what he suggests with these tests in mind.
