I am reading some really scientific discussions going on today so forgive me ahead of time that I am not that educated on this topic...I have read archived messages in the past where people discussed leaky gut syndrome and/or (I believe) effects on one's gut permeability. I also believe I recall flux and others saying that if the permeability of your gut was truly affected then you would get really sick in other ways and not have ibs only. Only meaning only symptom, not that ibs isn't severe enough in istelf. I may be butchering this whole idea but my main question is, what other kind of really sick...how else would one's body react if gut permeability is your problem? I hope this question makes sense...thanks.
