Gluten-intolerance – sometimes referred to as non-celiac gluten sensitivity – is a disorder where an individual is unable to tolerate gluten and experiences symptoms similar to those with celiac disease, but they lack the same antibodies and intestinal damage as seen in celiac disease.
If you have been suffering from unusual symptoms after ingesting gluten, it may be possible that you have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
Here are 3 signs you might be gluten-intolerant:
Bloating is an uncomfortable fullness and gassiness that sometimes occurs after eating. Although bloating is very common and can have many explanations, it may also be a sign of gluten intolerance. In fact, feeling bloated is one of the most common complaints of people who are sensitive or intolerant to gluten
Occasional diarrhea is completely normal, but it may be a concern if it happens regularly. Furthermore, individuals with celiac disease may experience pale and foul-smelling feces due to poor nutrient absorption. Frequent diarrhea can cause some major health concerns, such as loss of electrolytes, dehydration, and fatigue.
Gluten-intolerant individuals are prone to fatigue and tiredness because their bodies can’t absorb nutrients properly. If you are experiencing persistent fatigue that doesn’t improve with proper rest, then you should explore the possibility of an underlying cause.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, it is important to address the underlying cause. Incorporating regular chiropractic care into your lifestyle may help your body recover more quickly from the stress of gluten intolerance.
