Fibromyalgia Inpermeable

Research project

Fibromyalgia is a disease suffered by between 2.5% and 5% of the spanish population.  It affects quality of life, causes sick leaves and treatments are ineffective. Our goal is to carry out a medical research project on fibromyalgia and permeable intestine. The project will be under the leadership of  Dr. Carlos Isasi, rheumatologist at the Puerta de Hierro Hospital in Madrid.

Fibromyalgia and leaky gut / permeable bowel (fibromialgiainpermeable)

The patient with fibromyalgia has a long list of clinical manifestations (fibromyalgia symptoms) such as: chronic fatigue, generalized pain, sleep disturbances, intestinal problems, difficulty in concentrating, etc.

We can generally speaking find a relationship between the symptoms and chronic stress, chronic injuries, overmedication and pathologies of the autoimmune system, neurological system and the intestines.

There are often diagnosis based on, among other things, sensibility at certain “trigger points” on the body.

The causes of fibromialgia are currently unknown, therefore further research in this field is necessary.

Brain - intestine axis: It is known that the alterations to the flora and the intestinal function modify the immune system and in a very striking way the functioning of the brain.

The alteration to intestinal function known as bowel permeability (leaky gut) explains chronic and mental fatigue.
