Gluten Intolerance?


Gluten is a protein found in the wheat plant and some other grains, but here are many other food items that may contain gluten, often in hidden or unexpected ways. Gluten intolerance can lead to autoimmune reactions and increased inflammation levels (the root of most diseases), it’s associated with numerous diseases, including Celiac disease. The problem though is that many people fail to attribute these symptoms to an undiagnosed food sensitivity. Gluten sensitivity symptoms get ignored and they persist as no dietary changes are made by the person unknowingly suffering with a gluten sensitivity. What are the first signs of gluten intolerance?

Symptoms of gluten intolerance or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) are widespread and can include:

  • Digestive and IBS symptoms, including abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, constipation or diarrhea
  • “Brain fog,” difficulty concentrating and trouble remembering information
  • Frequent headaches
  • Mood-related changes, including anxiety and increased depression symptoms (5)
  • Ongoing low energy levels and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Muscle and joint pains
  • Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs
  • Reproductive problems and infertility (6)
  • Skin issues, including dermatitis, eczema, rosacea and skin rashes (also called a “gluten rash” or “gluten intolerance rash”)
  • Nutrient deficiencies, including anemia (iron deficiency)
