ADHD Evaluation - Intestinal Permeability and CDSA

At first, our digestive system and nervous system appear to have nothing to do with each other. In fact, both systems are more closely connected than we think. The gastrointestinal tract actually houses the second nervous system within the body and produces important neurotransmitters, like serotonin. Therefore, whatever affects the gastrointestinal tract also impacts how the nervous system functions. Find out for further details right here 

Due to the interconnections of the digestive system and nervous system, leaky gut syndrome is found to be among the top triggers of attention deficit disorder. The tricky thing about leaky gut syndrome is the fact that its symptoms are not as evident as those of an ulcer or other digestive issues. To be able to learn if a leaky gut syndrome is inducing uncontrollable hyperactivity, impassivity, and inattention, your child might have to take one of two specialized tests: the intestinal permeability test or the comprehensive digestive stool analysis (CDSA).

Intestinal permeability test

One of the many triggers of ADHD are food allergies, asthma, and a deficiency in vitamins, nutrients, and essential fatty acids. These three have in common is that they are usually caused by leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome occurs when an irritant, like a bacterial disease or intolerance into a chemical, induces the intestinal lining to swell and become inflamed. While this happens, the intestine becomes "leaky" because it absorbs bad bacteria and toxins instead of vitamins, minerals, and minerals in food that is digested. Take a look at this link for more information. 

The intestinal permeability test, or the lactose and mannitol Test, is designed to identify leaky gut syndrome by detecting the action of two sugar molecules - lactose and mannitol - in the gastrointestinal tract. In a healthy intestine, lactose is stored out while mannitol is absorbed into the bloodstream. If the test finds low mannitol absorption and high lactose absorption, this may indicate that your kid has a leaky gut.

You can get the intestinal permeability test either at a commercial laboratory or by ordering an evaluation kit in the world wide web. Before your child takes the test, your child will have to fast for at least eight hours, then consume a solution containing mannitol and lactose. Urine samples will be collected from your son or daughter during the next six hours. The collection is usually done by a laboratory technician, but if you order a home test kit, then you will have to mail the urine samples into the producer's laboratory and await the results to come within 10-14 days.

Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA)

The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is a useful diagnostic tool, not just for leaky Gut syndrome but to get a host of other digestive abnormalities such as bacterial Infections, gut flora imbalance, parasites, and Candida infections. Health care practitioners also use the CDSA to examine the gastrointestinal tract's Function and its ability to absorb essential fatty acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and other essential minerals and vitamins.
