Normalization of the increased translocation of endotoxin from gram negative enterobacteria (leaky gut) is accompanied by a remission of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – Source: Neuro Endocrinology Letters, Dec 6, 2007

By M Maes, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • December 11, 2007


There is now evidence that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is accompanied by an increased translocation of endotoxins from gram-negative enterobacteria through the gut wall, as demonstrated by increased prevalences and median values for serum IgM and IgA against the endotoxins of gram-negative enterobacteria.

This condition can also be described as increased gut permeability or leaky gut and indicates intestinal mucosal dysfunction (IMD).

Here we report a case of a 13-year-old girl with CFS who showed very high values for serum IgM against the LPS of some enterobacteria and signs of oxidative and nitrosative stress, activation of the inflammatory response system, and IgG3 subclass deficiency.

Upon treatment with specific antioxidants and a "leaky gut diet", which both aim to treat increased gut permeability, and immunoglobins intravenously, the increased translocation of the LPS of gram negative enterobacteria normalized and this normalization was accompanied by a complete remission of the CFS symptoms.
