7 Signs Of Gluten Intolerance, Everyone Ignores!

Apart from the fact that the vast majority of people who are gluten- intolerant will never be diagnosed, it seems that around 15% of Americans have some type of gluten sensitivity or intolerance, if not celiac disease.
Therefore, you need to know the 7 sings which indicate that you are one of them:

1. Autoimmune Diseases

  • Certainly not in all cases, but in some cases, the cause of Scleroderma, Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Lupus, and Psoriasis has been found to be gluten intolerance.
2. Fibromyalgia
  • If you’ve been diagnosed, consider gluten as the potential cause, for there are people diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, but in fact are gluten- intolerant.
3. Keratosis Pilaris
  • Keratosis pilaris or otherwise known as “chicken skin”, commonly found on the backs of arms and thighs is due to fatty acid deficiency caused by gluten damaging the gut.
4. Dizziness
  • Dizziness and feeling off balance is yet another symptom of gluten intolerance.
5. Persistent Headaches
  • Migraines and persistent headaches can also be signs of dehydration and other disorders, but they can also indicate gluten intolerance.
Moreover, it is advisable to consult your doctor in case your headaches don’t stop.
6. Routine Digestive Issues
  • Constipation is a common sign of gluten intolerance in children, and gas, diarrhea, bloating, and constipation are one of the most obvious signs.
7. Chronic Fatigue
  • If you suffer from chronic fatigue, see a doctor about it, for it can be caused by something as easy as dehydration and as severe as HIV.
Fatigue, brain fog, and feeling tired especially after meals that contain gluten are another clear indicator of gluten intolerance.
