Leaky gut and endotoxemia Zonulin and LBP
This blood test of labstein measures Zonulin and LBP (LPS binding protein) from serum.
Determination of the permeability of the intestinal mucosa.
The zonulin determination is suitable for the elucidation of a leaky gut syndrome in: allergic diseases, autoimmune diseases, abdominal diseases, multiple sclerosis and celiac disease.
Zonulin is a protein that is active in the intestines. Elevated zonulin levels in the blood indicate increased permeability of the intestinal wall due to exposure to too much gluten or harmful bacteria. Too much zonulin is an indicator of Leaky Gut Syndrome.
The result is good if it is less than 48 ng/ml Method
labstein: ELISA (EIA)
Lipopolysaccharide-binding protein is an acute phase protein with the ability to bind and pass bacterial LPS (or endotoxin).
Changes in serum LBP level has effects on the body's ability to respond to endotoxin and protect itself from infection.
The higher the LBP level, the higher the inflammation.
