Can I Receive Social Security Disability if I Suffer From Leaky Gut Syndrome?

06/18/2013 // Wright Disability Firm // Wright & Wright // (press release)

Many people suffer complications related to what is referred to as leaky gut syndrome. The condition can cause a number of symptoms including pain, gas, diarrhea, cramps, intolerance of certain foods, and other issues that can be life altering. Because leaky gut syndrome is often thought to be related to other health conditions, it creates diagnostic issues so patients who apply for Social Security benefits due to suffering from the condition typically do not qualify if it is listed as their sole disability.

The Social Security Administration requires that individuals meet certain criteria in order to be approved for benefits for a chronic health condition. Leaky gut syndrome sufferers may be able to be approved for benefits if they have been diagnosed with another medical condition in combination with their gastrointestinal issues. Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, anxiety, and autoimmune disorders are a few examples of health problems for which there are disability listings, and are in many cases underlying causes of leaky gut syndrome.

By contacting a disability advocate, individuals can receive help assessing their eligibility in accordance with the SSA guidelines if they have health conditions like leaky gut syndrome that impact their ability to work.

The advocates of Wright & Wright, America’s Social Security Disability Firm? are available for people who have questions related to their eligibility or other issues pertaining to filing for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
