About the Leaky Gut Test UK

 

Collection method: Urine

Measures: PEG 400

Turnaround time: 10 working days

For this test, you drink a sugary solution and collect all the urine you pass for six hours afterwards. Through measuring the types of sugar that end up in your urine (each of which have different-sized molecules), we can work out if you if your gut is more permeable than it should be. You’ll then receive personalised diet and lifestyle advice to optimise your gut health.

Frequently asked questions

Is leaky gut syndrome a real condition?

Yes. Some degree of intestinal permeability, as it’s technically known, is normal. However, there is robust evidence that some people have guts that are more permeable than they should be [1]. There’s also evidence that increased intestinal permeability can contribute to a number of disease states [2].

Who should take the leaky gut permeability test?

This test is especially helpful for people who suffer from autoimmune conditions, digestive conditions and multiple food sensitivities. However, if you recognise yourself in any of the symptoms listed above, this test may be helpful for you.

Do you ship outside the UK?

At the moment we only ship to UK addresses. If you have a special request, feel free to get in touch.

How do I take the leaky gut permeability test?

You can download full instructions here.

Do I need to stop taking supplements or medications before taking the leaky gut permeability test?

The results of this test may be affected by medication containing Movicol (Macrogol), diuretics and the supplement Seven Seas Zinc Plus Vitamin C. However, you must not stop any medication in order to take this test. Please speak to your GP first.

Is there anything I need to do before taking the leaky gut permeability test?

You must fast for at least 3 hours before taking the test. For this reason, most people find it easiest to take the test first thing on waking. The whole testing process takes 6 hours, so you’ll need to make sure you can fit it into your day. For more information, you can download the test instructions here.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t take the leaky gut permeability test?

You should not take this test if you’re suffering from diarrhoea or gastroenteritis. Wait until your digestion is normal before taking the test.

How long will it take to get my results?

Your results will be posted on your online account 10 days after the lab receives your sample. You’ll receive an email notification when your results are ready.

How do I view my results?

Simply log in to your Healthpath account here and click ‘Tests’. You’ll be able to access your results and personalised recommendations 10 days after returning your samples (sometimes sooner).

Why can’t I get the leaky gut permeability test through my GP?

Functional tests are highly specialised and currently not offered through the NHS. At present, the only option is to pay for them privately. We appreciate you want to spend your money wisely, which is why we only offer tests that are genuinely helpful.

How will I know what my results mean?

All your results data is accompanied by clear, jargon-free explanations. Our practitioners also review all results, providing personalised recommendations that are easy-to-follow and specific to you.

Can I claim the cost of the test on my private health insurance?

It’s possible, though you’ll need to check the details of your insurance to see what’s included.
