10 Signs You’re Gluten Intolerant
More than 55 diseases have been linked to gluten
It is also estimated that as much as 15% of the US population is gluten intolerant. Could you be one of them?
If you have any of the following symptoms it could be a sign that you have gluten intolerance:
-Digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and even constipation. I see the constipation particularly in children after eating gluten.
-Keratosis Pilaris, (also known as ‘chicken skin’ on the back of your arms). This tends be as a result of a fatty acid deficiency and vitamin A deficiency secondary to fat-malabsorption caused by gluten damaging the gut.
-Fatigue, brain fog or feeling tired after eating a meal that contains gluten.
-Diagnosis of an autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, -Rheumatoid arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Scleroderma or Multiple sclerosis.
-Neurologic symptoms such as dizziness or feeling of being off balance.
-Hormone imbalances such as PMS, PCOS or unexplained infertility.
-Diagnosis of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. These diagnoses simply indicate your conventional doctor cannot pinpoint the cause of your fatigue or pain.
-Inflammation, swelling or pain in your joints such as fingers, knees or hips.
-Mood issues such as anxiety, depression, mood swings and ADD.
