Are you suffering from Gluten Intolerance?
If you go to the grocery store, you will probably see more and more food labelled ‘gluten free’. If you go out and eat in restaurants there will likely be a few items on the menu that are for those who are gluten intolerant.
Why is this so? Is there a rise in gluten intolerance? Or are we only just starting to recognise the signs. Below are 5 signs of gluten intolerance that most people ignore.
Have a look below and see if you are suffering from the same symptoms.
It’s been said that the vast majority of people who have a gluten intolerance will never be diagnosed and that as much as 15% of Americans have some type of gluten sensitivity or intolerance, if not celiac disease. Are you one of them? Here are the 8 subtle signs to look for:
1. 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.
2. 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.
Dizziness and feeling off balance is yet another sign of gluten intolerance.
4. Mood disorders.
Anxiety, depression, mood swings, ADD, ADHD, and anxiety are sometimes caused by gluten intolerance. Remove gluten from the diet and see if the disorders improve.
5. Persistent headaches.
Migraines and persistent headaches is another potential sign of gluten intolerance. They can also be signs of dehydration and other disorders. See a physician if your headaches don’t stop.
