9 Signs You Are Gluten Intolerant

I ended up noticing that so much of what I was reading about gluten intolerance identified with things that my daughter is suffering with.

I ended up doing a lot of research and realized that this whole gluten intolerance is a real thing and it seemed like my daughter was suffering with it.

If you’re having some unexplained symptoms, you may be intolerant or sensitive to gluten. I even think maybe it is the spray on the wheat fields?

Check out these 9 symptoms to see if you may have gluten sensitivity.

1. Gastrointestinal Or Digestive Problems

Severe bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and excessive, uncomfortable gas are just a few of the digestive disorders that signal you might have celiac disease.

The good news is, however, that most of these uncomfortable and embarrassing symptoms clear upon implementation of a gluten-free diet, which is the only treatment option available to people with celiac disease.

2. Chronic Fatigue

When your body’s ability to properly absorb and distribute nutrients to where they need to be in your body becomes impaired many clients feel a nagging sense of chronic fatigue.

3. Keratosis Pilaris (red bumpy rash on back of arms and legs)

The skin is the largest organ in your body and is often a window to what might be going on inside of you.

This condition, also called chicken skin, is a chronic skin condition where raised, hard bumps appear on the skin.

Research indicates those with keratosis pilaris may also have a fatty acid and vitamin A deficiency due to impaired absorption of nutrients.

4. Acne and dry skin

Acne and dry skin have also been linked to poor nutrient absorption, which is consistent in people with celiac disease and other gluten disorder

5. Cold and Mouth Sores

Another common sign and symptom of celiac diseases shows up in various oral manifestations.

People with celiac disease often experience more cavities, canker sores, mouth ulcers, broken teeth, and tooth decay than those without.

6. Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain

Food intolerance is often the root cause of chronic inflammation, including migraines. Wheat and gluten are among the biggest triggers of headaches and migraines. Other foods, like corn, dairy, eggs and yeast can trigger migraines and headaches.

7. Mood Swings

There are a variety of psychological manifestations of celiac disease such as anxiety, depression, aggressive behaviors, ADHD, and sleep disorders.

A gluten-free diet has been shown to help combat many of the symptoms associated with these diagnoses, albeit a lot of information is still unknown.

8. Dizziness

 

9. Brain Fog

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out or ask your doctor for a Celiac test.

Even though you may not test positive you may have gluten sensitivities. You may want to cut gluten from your diet and see how you feel.

With love,
