Weight Gain & Leaky Gut

1 post in this topic

Is weight gain a sign that a leaky gut is healing? I'm suspecting I have leaky gut due to various symptoms, and I don't think my body was able to absorb nutrients from food or vitamins....I looked malnourished even though I was eating all the "right" foods in decent amounts. Since I started a low histamine diet a few months ago, along with regularly eating sweet potatoes, taking digestive enzymes, selenium & vitamin E, and sometimes vitamin C, I noticed that I have put on a few pounds. Could this mean that my gut is healing, since I am able to gain weight?I also look a bit healthier I think, but I still get some mucus in my stools (sorry for the TMI) which is usually a sign of candida so I don't think the issues are completely gone.
