Leaky Gut syndrome is recognized as a cause of insulin resistance, allergies, ulcers, and diarrhea and off behavior in people and horses. Being a syndrome, leaky gut is a very complex condition that is not caused by any one single factor but usually occurs in response to trauma, stress, metabolic challenge or a combination of one or more factors. Intense exercise is a documented trigger for leaky gut syndrome, therefore, high performance horses are very susceptible to this condition which may be confused with and/or occur concurrently with gastric ulcers.
