MEDICAL CORNER ... Ten symptoms of gluten intolerance

More than 55 diseases have been linked to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.

It’s estimated that 99% of the people who have either gluten intolerance or celiac disease are never diagnosed.

Ten signs that you may have gluten intolerance:

1. Digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and even constipation.

2. 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.

3. Fatigue, brain fog or feeling tired after eating a meal that contains gluten.

4. Diagnosis of an autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Scleroderma or Multiple sclerosis.

5. Neurologic symptoms such as dizziness or feeling of being off balance.

6. Hormone imbalances such as PMS, PCOS or unexplained infertility.

7. Migraine headaches.

8. Diagnosis of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. These diagnoses simply indicate your conventional doctor cannot pin point the cause of your fatigue or pain.

9. Inflammation, swelling or pain in your joints such as fingers, knees or hips.

10. Mood issues such as anxiety, depression, mood swings and ADD.

  2. Well, I have MS and I’m not Celiac but I do have a very mild gluten intolerance. However, I honestly believe that MOST people do…autoimmune disease or not. My MS just makes it easier for me to notice the symptoms of the intolerance because it exacerbates my MS. I talk about this stuff in my blog


      • Of course an environmental factor is associated. Could it be food? Perhaps. However, scientific evidence also strongly correlates genetic markers. I doubt that food is the only thing causing autoimmune diseases or they would not have existed in the 1500s, and they did.


      • Agree but the current situation with GMOs …. and our food supply … is bringing forth all of these diseases .. increasing incidence. They are far too common now than before ….. The biggest company is MONSANTO, and they have been around since 1901.


      • No doubt Monsanto is BAD and I believe food to be an exacerbator of autoimmune disease perhaps even causative. However, I leave room for other environmental factors to be causative as well; vitamin deficiencies, viral exposures, location, etc.
