Leaky gut syndrome is not something accepted in/by traditional medicine. Proponents of leaky gut syndrome claim that it is the underlying pathologic etiology for a multitude of issues including but not limited to joint pains, skin conditions, chronic fatigue, depression, malaise, diarrhea, abdominal pain, feeling infected but your physician can't find any infection, etc. As you can see, these are quite general & vague complaints which could be accounted for by a multitude of other conditions.
On the other hand, proponents of leaky gut syndrome claim that by avoiding non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), avoiding alcohol, taking dietary supplements such as L-glutamine & N-acetyl glucosamine, and adopting an anti-inflammatory diet can help treat leaky gut syndrome.
And just what is an anti-inflammatory diet? Avoid high glycemic foods and saturated fats. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables daily and lots of fish weekly. And get tested for intestinal parasites & celiac disease. In the end, the dietary recommendations are pretty commonsense and don't step on the toes of most other nutritional suggestions for heart disease and diabetes.
