Glutenintolerans 10 symptom


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. It is also estimated that as much as 15% of the US population is gluten intolerant. Could you be one of them? If you have any of the following symptoms it could be a sign that you have gluten intolerance: 

1. Digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and even constipation. I see the constipation particularly in children after eating gluten. 

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. 

Vilket är bästa sättet att testa om man eventuellt skulle vara glutenintolerant?

Ta bort all födoämnen som innehåller gluten och vänta tre fulla veckor innan du börjar äta som vanligt igen. Om det är någon skillnad så kommer du garanterat att känna av den.
Kan vara tufft för vissa att överleva i 3 veckor utan pizza och öl....  men allt går om bara viljan finns där.
