How Gluten Intolerances Affect You

In the past few years, being gluten-free has been widely embraced.

From restaurants to grocery stores carrying gluten-free options, it has become increasingly easier to eat within the dietary restriction.

But do you know what gluten intolerance really is?

Gluten intolerance comes in two forms — celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

Those with celiac disease inherit the autoimmune disease genetically and cannot ingest even small amounts of gluten without damaging their small intestine.

Celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people in the world.

On the other hand, those with gluten intolerance do not technically have an autoimmune disorder or even a food allergy.

Gluten intolerance happens when someone's digestive system has problems tolerating gluten.

When gluten is eaten, their bodies respond with fatigue, abdominal pain diarrhea, and gas.

About 15 percent of the U.S. suffers from gluten intolerance.

If you are unsure if you have a gluten intolerance, here are symptoms you should look out for.

  • Issues with digestion
  • Headaches (minor or severe like migraines and seizures)
  • Anemia (iron deficiency, missed menstrual cycles)
  • Issues with fertility
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Rashes on the skin
  • Aching bones, joints
  • Numb or tingling hands and feets

Remember that it is always best to see a physician for a proper diagnosis.
