Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten intolerance can cause adverse reactions with Celiac disease as the most severe form thereof. The 14 main signs and symptoms of gluten intolerance: 1. Bloating Bloating is when you feel as if your belly is swollen or full of gas after you’ve eaten. Feeling bloated is one of the most common complaints of people who are sensitive or intolerant to gluten. 2. Diarrhea, Constipation and Smelly Feces It is a cause for concern if getting diarrhea and constipation happens regularly. Persons with celiac disease experience inflammation in the gut after eating gluten. 3. Abdominal Pain Abdominal pain is the single most common symptom of an intolerance to gluten. 4. Headaches Individuals that have regular headaches or migraines without any apparent cause, could be sensitive to gluten. Gluten-intolerant individuals may be more prone to migraines than others. 5. Feeling Tired Individuals that are gluten-intolerant are very prone to fatigue and tiredness, especially after eating foods that contain gluten. 6. Skin Problems Ddermatitis herpetiformis is the skin manifestation of celiac disease. Skin diseases that have shown improvement while on a gluten-free diet includes Psoriasis (disease of the skin characterized by scaling and reddening of the skin), Alopecia areata (it appears as non-scarring hair loss) and Chronic urticarial (itchy, pink or red lesions with pale centers). 7. Depression Individuals with digestive issues seem to be more prone to both anxiety and depression. Studies have shown that depressed individuals with self-reported gluten intolerance want to continue a gluten-free diet because they feel better, even though their digestive symptoms may not be resolved. 8. Unexplained Weight Loss Unexpected weight change is often a cause for concern. Unexplained weight loss is a common side effect of undiagnosed celiac disease. 9. Iron-Deficiency Anemia Iron deficiency causes symptoms such as low blood volume, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches, pale skin and weakness. In celiac disease, nutrient absorption in the large intestine is impaired, resulting in a reduced amount of iron being absorbed from food. 10. Anxiety Anxiety involves feelings of worry, nervousness, unease and agitation that often goes hand-in-hand with depression. Individuals with gluten intolerance seem to be more prone to anxiety and panic disorders than healthy individuals. 11. Autoimmune Disorders Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to attack your digestive tract after you consume gluten. It makes you more prone to other autoimmune diseases, such as autoimmune thyroid disease. 12. Joint and Muscle Pain There is a theory that individuals with celiac disease have a genetically determined over-sensitive or over-excitable nervous system. Therefore, they may have a lower threshold to activate sensory neurons that cause pain in muscles and joints. 13. Leg or Arm Numbness Another symptom of gluten intolerance is neuropathy, which involves numbness or tingling in the arms and legs. Individuals with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity seem to be at a higher risk of experiencing arm and leg numbness, compared to healthy control groups. 14. Brain Fog Having a “foggy mind” is a common symptom of gluten intolerance, affecting up to 40% of gluten-intolerant individuals. People have described it as being forgetful, having difficulty thinking, feeling cloudy and having mental fatigue.
