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.

Digestive Problems

You suffer from digestive issues such as bloating, cramping, general abdominal discomfort and so on after eating. Note: This is pretty common in children.

Fatigue

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.

Neurologic Symptoms

You feel dizzy, disorientated or off balance after eating a meal that contains gluten (this symptom goes hand in hand with fatigue).

Headaches
