Is Leaky Gut Syndrome a Real Condition? ,

You may have heard of a condition known as leaky gut syndrome (LGS), which presents with a number of symptoms. It is thought that LGS is the result of larger substances passing through the intestinal structures into the bloodstream. This then is said to result in toxins and bacteria that can cause additional health problems.

As of now, no studies have confirmed these claims have any validity. However, that does not negate the fact that patients present with the associated symptoms of LGS. If you are experiencing digestive health issues, Dr. David Yamini can provide diagnosis and treatment.

LGS Symptoms

A host of symptoms have been associated with leaky gut syndrome. These symptoms are very real and likely suggest some sort of gastroenterological problem. If you are suffering from pain, discomfort, bloating, food sensitivities or other issues with digestion, reach out to Dr. David Yamini today.

An unhealthy gut can make it difficult to eat, or you may experience nausea before or after meals. In many cases, diet is the main driver of symptoms attributed to LGS. Dr. David Yamini’s patients can expect the highest standard of care at his Beverly Hills offices.

Conditions Linked to LGS

Several conditions have been linked to leaky gut syndrome in sufferers of gastroenterological conditions. Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel disease and celiac disease are associated with intestinal permeability. The first step toward finding relief is getting a diagnosis from an experienced gastroenterologist.

When you trust Dr. Yamini with your care, he will quickly seek to identify the symptoms and cause of your condition. For many patients, it is possible to once again enjoy favorite foods with the right treatment plan. However, you may need to adjust diet and lifestyle to achieve your digestive health goals.

Scheduling was extremely easy with Dr. Yamini's staff, I scheduled my Tuesday appointment on Monday afternoon. The staff and Dr. Yamini were courteous and straightforward - even with new patient paperwork I was out the door within an hour!

Bill C.

Dr. Yamini definitely is a great doctor who is very thorough and detail oriented with his diagnosis. He is very passionate about what he does and was able to answer any question or concern. He took his time before my appointment to look through all the documentation to know exactly what was going on. He definitely was able to put me at ease even though I was very worried. I am very satisfied with his services. Thanks!

Mario O.

He was very gentle about my situation yet did not fail to emphasize about the seriousness that could arise from gastrointestinal problems. Few and far between are as professional and caring as Dr. Yamini and his staff. I was 20 minutes late on Friday evening & they still had me in a room in 5 minutes as a new patient.

I can’t say enough great things about my first impression of this doctor and his amazing staff! They got me right in and set me up for everything needed. I’ve been looking for the right GI doctor for years having had a very negative experience with another doctor years ago. Dr. Yamini is not only professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and experienced... this guy is “cool” and nice too! His front desk person, Toni was amazing! She was kind, bright, efficient, patient, and positive! ??

Makes talking about uncomfortable subjects a breeze. Competent and honest: doesn't sell vitamin cleanses and his own probiotics or anything like that. Makes sure your symptoms aren't half-fixed but fully fixed. Gets to the heart of the issue quickly. Good listener. Very sweet receptionist. I hate receiving many phone calls, and she's persistent about making sure you set up an appointment; it was stressing me out. I found the her much easier to connect with once she gave me her cell and said to text.

Babak E.

Thank you Dr. Yamini and Tony. When it comes to patient care and professionalism, I have never received this much care and attention from a physician and the staff. I was able to talk to Dr. Yamini for good period of time allowing me to ask all my questions. Tony you are so cute thank you for scheduling me in last minute.

Kyle K.

I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He's very personable and actually listens to your issues and concerns, then recommends a reasonable course of action. He was able to properly diagnose my symptoms and get me healthy again. Also his admin Toni is great too, she will help select a facility and verify that your insurance will fully cover. She's really nice and trustworthy as well!

Eric W.

Thorough doctor who cares about his patients, and very meticulous about the details of your ailment. Clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. No wait time for appointments, and the nurse (Toni) is very friendly and follows up appropriately. One of the best doctor experiences I've had and I'd recommend it to anyone.
