|The NY Times recently ran an article called GLUTEN FREE, WHETHER YOU NEED IT OR NOT. A doubting physician stated that the test done to diagnose “Gluten intolerance” is a serum test that shows antibodies to gluten in the blood stream. He also states that this is not diagnostic at all, and he is 100% correct. All it shows, as a matter of fact, is gut permeability.|
Electron microscopy shows that yeast mycelium are capable of penetrating the gut lumen and contributing to gut leakage. The end result of such an occurrence is the passage of antigenic-ally intact macromolecules, including but not limited to gluten. The presence of gluten antibodies in a blood serum test, therefore are more apt to prove yeast induced gut permeability than gluten sensitivity.
