Did leaky gut cause my intolerance to dairy and gluten?

I have heard that with leaky gut, you would have tons of food intolerances, as things are escaping into your bloodstream and reeking havoc. I could very well have leaky gut since I spent a year taking advil like candy for a problem tooth, plus partied hard for an extended period of time.

Since leaky gut is not really recognized by doctors, there's no way to know for sure if I have it or not, right? Anyways, the only food intolerances I have are to gluten and dairy, and they only started a couple years ago, so is it still possible? If it is, will my intolerance go away if I work on healing my gut? I obviously dont care about gluten, but no dairy sucks, and accidental exposure is a bitch. And I know the intolerance isn't from avoiding them for an extended period of time, since I never stopped eating dairy till I figured out it was bothering me.

Not everyone is a Ray Peat follower.

Gluten may be the cause of your leaky gut, or the combo of NSAID and gluten.

You may be able to tolerate dairy again once your gut is healed. But first you've got to heal the gut. GAPS diet or Specific Carb Diet can help you heal the gut and reintroduce dairy, but gluten grains are probably out for good.
