Campylo enteritis, post-dysenteric IBS and increased gut permeability
There is an important message to take home from this article. The damage inflicted on the GI tract following infection can persist beyond one year. I have talked with a GI specialist and an infectious disease specialist that refused to believe that an infection in the GI tract could have long term effects. This idea that the body comes back to homeostasis is WRONG. If we can accept that these changes become ingrained, then we can begin to treat the altered permeability and upregulated immune cells.
