Don’t Ignore These Gluten Intolerance Signs

Hey, there viewers. Have you been tracking your food intake lately? Is it because your gastrointestinal tract
acts up every now and then? Perhaps a bad case of indigestion? If you have been asking these questions lately,
you’ll want to consider the possibility of a gluten intolerance. What are the first signs of it? Is it heavy bloating or diarrhea? Are those constant abdominal pains and headaches
trying to tell you something? I am always feeling tired… Could that be a sign as well? We’ll talk about all this AND MORE…. What is Gluten Intolerance? Also known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity,
gluten intolerance can be a silent killer. Sometimes the patient isn’t even aware they
have it, which can go on causing chronic damage to their body. Gluten is a specific type of protein found
in wheat, rye, and barley. People with gluten sensitivity experience
adverse reactions when they consume food containing it. Gluten intolerance and celiac disease People often confuse the two, but in their
defence, they do share similar symptoms. Celiac disease is a severe form of gluten
intolerance. It can damage a person’s digestive system. While gluten intolerance does cause significant
discomfort, lifestyle changes can help you manage its symptoms. Another confusion about gluten intolerance
stems from the misconception that gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy are one in the same. Wheat allergy can be very dangerous, as its
symptoms include loss of consciousness and impaired breathing. It is estimated around 1% of the world population
suffers from celiac disease, while 0.5-13% may have a gluten intolerance. Now that you know what gluten sensitivity
is and how it differs from celiac disease, it’s time we discuss the symptoms. #1 Depression
Studies have established a direct connection between digestive issues and mental health. For example, it’s a well-known fact that
Irritable Bowel Syndrome and anxiety can trigger each other. Experts have put forth a few theories on why
gluten intolerance can cause depression. In people with gluten sensitivity, peptides-
called Gluten exorphins- get formed during digestion. There are high chances these peptides interfere
with the central nervous system, increasing the risk of depression. Another probable theory suggests that gluten
sensitivity decreases our level of serotonin. Commonly known as the happiness hormone, serotonin
is a neurotransmitter that facilitates communication between cells. The third and final theory links gut flora
with depression. Gluten intolerance can increase the growth
of harmful gut bacteria and decrease the population of gut-friendly bacteria in our intestine. This may affect the central nervous system
leading to a risk of developing depression. Remember all those times your mom told you
to eat right? She was correct! Our digestive system has a lot to do with
our mood and mental health! #2 Skin Issues You thought gluten intolerance would just
affect your mood and digestive system? Think again! Celiac disease can manifest as a skin problem
like dermatitis herpetiformis- a skin condition that leads to the formation of blisters on
the skin. It has been found that everyone who has the
disease is gluten sensitive. But only 10% experience actual symptoms of
celiac disease. There have been studies showing several skin
diseases improved when the patient switched to a gluten-free diet. These include psoriasis, Chronic urticaria,
and Alopecia areata. All in all, going gluten-free might actually
lead to an improvement in several skin problems. #3 Bowel Troubles Occasional bowel troubles like diarrhea and
constipation are normal. It could be the stomach flu you caught while
eating at the local restaurant, or that scorching-hot pepper you were warned not to try. But if you find yourself struggling to maintain
a normal bowel routine, chances are you could be gluten intolerant. People with gluten sensitivity experience
inflammation of the small intestine, which may damage the gut lining. Poor nutrient absorption resulting from gut-lining
damage can cause bowel issues. More than 50% of people with gluten intolerance,
regularly experience diarrhea while the number for those experiencing frequent constipation
is 25%. If your bathroom routines are changing drastically,
consider getting an expert opinion. It could be gluten sensitivity. Before we move ahead, here’s something you

avoid if you have anxiety. #4 Bloating and Abdominal pain Do you feel puffy after mealtime? Is your belly full of gas after you’ve eaten? These can be signs of gluten intolerance. While there are a number of causes behind
bloating, from that extra helping of broccoli to the chickpea salad, gluten sensitivity
could be a major contributor. Experts have said that bloating is a common
complaint people have when they are suffering from gluten sensitivity. Further research showed that 87% of people
with gluten intolerance experienced bloating. It’s a no brainer that bloating causes abdominal
pain. This is why studies show that 83% of people
with gluten sensitivity report it as a symptom. #5 Anemia Iron-deficiency anemia is often the reason
why celiac disease and gluten intolerance gets diagnosed. People often ignore other symptoms like bloating
and abdominal pain. It is only when they experience symptoms of
iron-deficiency anemia that they reach out to experts. These include headaches, tiredness, fatigue,
reduced blood volume, pale skin, and shortness of breath. Celiac disease and gluten intolerance can
reduce nutrient absorption in the intestine, which results in iron deficiency. A recent study pointed out that iron deficiency
may be significant in people suffering from celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. #6 Unexplained Weight Loss Weight loss seems like a piece of good news
but only when it’s done properly. Weight changes without proper reasoning are
often indicative of an underlying health issue. Undiagnosed celiac disease and gluten sensitivity
can often lead to unexplained weight loss. A study observing patients with celiac disease
and gluten sensitivity pointed out that over two-thirds of patients lost weight six months
prior to their diagnosis. There are a number of reasons behind this
weight loss. They include poor nutrient absorption, frequent
diarrhea, bloating, and abdominal pain. #7 Poor Teeth Condition Just like iron deficiency, celiac disease
and gluten sensitivity can affect absorption of calcium in the small intestine. Calcium deficiency can lead to problems with
teeth and oral cavities. This includes tooth decay, ulcers of the mucous
cavity, and hypersensitivity of enamel. If you maintain healthy oral care, but are
still experiencing issues, gluten sensitivity could be behind it. What to do if you suspect gluten sensitivity? If you suspect you have gluten intolerance,
pay attention to your gluten consumption. Try removing gluten from your diet temporarily
and see if things improve. The most cost effective way to do so is to
add gluten-free foods into your diet. Sneak more fruits and vegetables into your
meals. Dairy products, poultry, meat, fish, seafood,
beans, legumes, and nuts are free from gluten. You can also consume gluten-free grains like
rice, quinoa, corn, and oats. Do you think you have a gluten sensitivity? Have you experienced any of these symptoms? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!

  4. Well, I am one of those people that are gluten intolerant.

    Now I know where does anemia come from as well as teeth problem. All thanks to you guys 😍

  5. Gut lining hurts/extremely tired/head feels black and blue/lose hair/immune system is lower. Gluten is in wheat/barley/rye..oats/corn/rice. Rice is low in gluten. Wild rice has no gluten…is a grass. Organic brown rice has too much gluten for me. Best is 100% no gluten since microscopic gluten may hurt the gut lining and then nutrients don't absorb. To me gluten sensitive/gluten intolerance/Celiac hurts people in the same way. Gluten may cause many health issues since cell malfunction due to low nutrients. Gluten may hurt the brain/body/glands/gut lining/skin/mood/personality issues/addictions/ADD/low thyroid/depression/anxiety/OCD/acne/shortness may happen. Irritable bowel maybe due to gluten and irritable bladder maybe due to dairy.

  6. Hair test shows good mineral levels/heavy metal levels. Gluten may lower nutrients absorbed and not let the liver work well to detox heavy metals. Low thyroid due to gluten may cause constipation. Gluten may cause diarrhea also. Genova tests show vitamins/allergies/hormones. Allergies can be due to leaky gut due to gluten.

  7. Nuts out of the shell may have gluten on them. Buy nuts in the shell. Juicing may help get nutrients into the person. Vit A/glutamine/green tea/aloe vera/slipper elm and more may help heal the gut lining once gluten is stopped. LDN…Low dose Naltrexone helps heal the gut lining from gluten in the air etc..

  8. Have had diarrhea for 35 straight days. Been to 3 doctors. None of them have any idea. Have been taking anti-diarrhea pills and they work for about 8 hours. Then It’s back. Any idea?

  9. Celiac disease results into Cirrhosis of Liver.Does Celiac disease results into Type 1 Diabetes.Immune system weakens malfunctions because of Celiac Disease resulting into destruction of islet beta cells by our own immune system.Proper Research Required.

  10. All I know is that.. I GET ANNOYING HEADACHES after I eat…
