Most of people who suffer from gluten intolerance will never find out and 15% of Americans suffer from some type of gluten sensitivity or intolerance if they are not diagnosed with celiac disease. Do you want to find out whether you have this problem? Read about 7 signs and find out!
1: Keratosis Pilaris
This is also known as “chicken skin” and appears on your thighs and back side of the arms. It occurs due to fatty acid deficiency which is cause by damaged gut by the gluten.
2: Persistent Headaches
Another signs of gluten intolerance are migraines and severe headaches but they can be caused by dehydration and other medical conditions as well. Visit a doctor if the headache is persistent.
3: Autoimmune Diseases
Not always but in some cases Psoriasis, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, Scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis are proven to be linked with gluten intolerance.
4. Routine Digestive Issues
Gas, diarrhea, bloating, and constipation that persists seemingly without cause is one of the most obvious signs. Constipation is a common sign of gluten intolerance in children.
Dizziness and feeling off balance is yet another sign of gluten intolerance.
6. Chronic Fatigue
Chronic fatigue can be caused by something as easy to fix as dehydration and as severe as HIV. If you have chronic fatigue, see a doctor about it. Fatigue, brain fog, and feeling tired especially after meals that contain gluten are another clear indicator.
Some people diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue actually have gluten intolerance but don’t realize it. If you’ve been diagnosed, consider gluten as the potential cause.
