Fascinating article here for you today from Chris Kresser on the link between gluten, leaky gut and the effect that has on the biliary system. I didn’t know that liver and bile duct cell barriers are also controlled by tight junctions and are therefore subject to leakiness! Another body barrier for us to consider.
I do come across a lot of people who need fat digestion and bile flow support so maybe I now need to think ‘gluten related disorder’ for those people too? I have found that a trulyglutenfree diet helps with gallbladder pain – and this now gives me a good explanation of why.
Do have a read. Quite technical but very useful if this fits you.
