Zonulin Test

KBMO

  • Zonulin

    Zonulin is a protein that is synthesized in intestinal cells and liver cells. It is a key biomarker for intestinal permeability and is the only regulator of intestinal permeability that is reversible. Zonulin is one of three ways the FIT test can diagnose a leaky gut, along with finding a sensitivity to Candida and multiple Food Sensitivities. It is estimated that anywhere between 50 and 100 percent of food intolerance sufferers have increased intestinal permeability.

    Increased intestinal permeability can be caused by food allergies and sensitivities, stress, infections, and low stomach acid, among other causes. In a healthy gut, there are healthy cell junctions and good nutrient absorption. In a leaky gut, however, the Villi are damaged, there is poor absorption and the cell junctions are loose. This means that bacteria and unwanted items can pass through the gut, as seen in the picture to the right.


    Elevated levels of Zonulin can lead to:

    • Autoimmune disease
    • Type I Diabetes
    • Celiac Disease
    • Among other diseases

    Measuring Zonulin can help assess a leaky gut. If Zonulin can be measured in a patient's blood, there is evidence of tissue damage. If Zonulin is present there is more than 95% confidence that there is a loss in intestinal function.

    What is a LEAKY GUT?

    • Having a leaky gut means the functions of the intestinal barriers have stopped working properly
    • The intestinal lining is essentially a wall of tightly joined cells that open and close when necessary
    • Zonulin remotely controls the opening of tight junctions between cells
    • If too much Zonulin is produced, the tight junctions remain open
