Who should take the test?
The complex interaction of food allergens, microorganisms, epithelium and immune system influences the development of many chronic diseases. Above all, a permeable intestinal mucosa – the leaky gut syndrome – plays a central role.
The protein molecule zonulin is a suitable marker to measure the permeability of the intestinal mucosa. Zonulin regulates the exchange of fluid, macromolecules and leukocytes between bloodstream and intestinal lumen. High zonulin values can typically be observed in case of Diabetes Type 1, autoimmune diseases, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic diseases.
The test analyzes the values of the following protein molecule:
Our Zonulin Test gives you information about the zonulin concentration in your gut. This value plays an important role in diagnosing the so called “Leaky Gut Syndrome”, as it gives an indication of the gut permeability.
How does it work?
You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each protein molecule and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.
What will my results tell me?
Your results will provide detailed information about whether your zonulin level is normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Although we do not offer therapy service ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
