Going gluten free helps those with celiac disease or those with Non-Celiac gluten Sensitivity (given after celiac disease has been ruled out). Do you have celiac disease? How was your Bacterial Dybosis diagnosed? How do you know you have a leaky gut?

If you suspect celiac disease, consider getting tested:

I have leaky gut amd celiac diagnosed about a week ago. I just suspect bacterial dysbosis because probiotics have such a profound impact on bowels. Just wondering if the celiac and how badly it impacts the gi is apart of the dysbosis.

I would suggest focusing on learning the gluten free diet. It has a steep learning curve. Your other issues may resolve. It does take time. Most celiacs can take a year or longer to heal. Stick to a diet featuring whole food, avoid processed foods (even gluten free) and do not eat out until you are feeling well. Cross contamination is a huge issue for celiacs. Keep a food journal because many celiacs have additional intolerances (but will not set off an autoimmune reaction like gluten does). Researchers believe it has to do with Zonulin. I would avoid all vitamins and even probiotics which are supposedly better for the colon, but celiac disease affects the small intestine and there is little bacteria there. Focus on foods providing you nutrients. Too much bacteria and you have SIBO which can be treated with antibiotics. Get good follow up care like getting your antibodies rechecked in six months. They should be declining.

cyclinglady do you know if GF flours are OK or is it just a gimmick that can still make you sick? I make almost everything at home but I'm still not getting all that better.

Are there supplements you can buy to stock zonulin?

I use Gf flours, but sparingly. I try to focus on non-processed foods. Zonulin was only just discovered by Dr. Fasano a decade or so ago. There is no drug or supplement to control it.

Look to other issues that could be causing your problems. Have you researched the AIP diet? (It is strict, but a recent study of of Scripps in San Diego studied the AIP diet with IBD patients who stayed on their meds. They acheived a 70% remission rate. That is amazing!

I do not think GF bread, cupcakes or chips is allowed on that diet! Junk food, gluten free or not, is still junk!
