Science has linked over 55 diseases to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye and barley. And shockingly enough, a whopping 99% of people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease are never diagnosed! In addition, around 15% of the population is gluten intolerant. Does this include you? If you have any of the following symptoms, it could very well mean you have gluten intolerance.
You suffer from digestive issues such as bloating, cramping, general abdominal discomfort and so on after eating. Note: This is pretty common in children.
You experience fatigue, brain fog or a feeling of tiredness after eating a meal that contains gluten.
Autoimmune Disease Diagnosis
You’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, scleroderma or multiple sclerosis.
You feel dizzy, disorientated or off balance after eating a meal that contains gluten (this symptom goes hand in hand with fatigue).
You suffer from bad headaches or migraines that usually last a considerable amount of time after eating gluten.
The joints in your fingers, wrists, knees, hips and so on are swollen and painful.
You experience anxiety, depression, mood swings and/or ADD after eating gluten.
Do you have any additional gluten intolerant symptoms to share?
