I'm posting about my MIL because I'm concerned about advice she's receiving from her doctors. She's always had issues with GERD and her thyroid, and is on medications to deal with both. Her doctor diagnosed her with leaky gut last fall, and she's been a very strict diet after seeing an allergist. I'm not sure all that they found her allergic or intolerant to, but she was put on a dairy and gluten free diet, along with being told to avoid this looong list of food items such as blueberries. She just saw the allergiest again a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to take her off of all fruit and sugar, which now has her questioning his suggestions. Even her regular doctor is very confused by it all.
For those of you that have dealt with leaky gut, what type of restrictions were you on?
