Leaky Gut Symptoms and Treatment in San Diego

If you have leaky gut, you may experience digestive issues that come and go, and it can be difficult to figure out a trigger. Many foods at various different times can cause you to react sensitively,  and without a consistent pattern.

Common symptoms of leaky gut include gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation and fatigue. Because it can be challenging for patients to identify the root cause of their symptoms, at Spark Health we offer extensive testing that examines the entire digestive tract environment.

Our doctors investigate why your body is suffering from issues such as inflammation, immune response, nutrient absorption or food sensitivity. To treat leaky gut. we remove known food triggers, rebuild the lining of the digestive tract and restoring proper bacterial balance.

Food Sensitivity Testing & Allergy Testing

Food sensitivities are different from food allergies in the reaction that they create in the body. Many doctors test only immediate food allergies, such as peanuts, that cause an immediate, anaphylactic reaction, but this does not give information about how repeated exposure to certain foods over a longer term can impact health.

Patients with food sensitivities experience a variety of symptoms, including diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, fatigue, anxiety, poor concentration, and low mood. By testing for food sensitivities, we take guesswork out of the equation so that you have a clear sense of which foods to include and avoid in your diet, and put a plan in place for symptom relief in both the short and long term.
