Were you familiar that around 15% of Americans have some kind of gluten intolerance?
This is a big number of people, and it is also known that a vast majority of people who have gluten intolerance will never be diagnosed, so the number is actually even bigger.
Check if you are one of these people by reading the following signs:
- Keratosis Pilaris
It is also known as “chicken skin”. The real cause behind this skin condition is fat acid deficiency which is caused by gluten damaging the gut. “Chicken skin” can appear on the back of the arms or the thighs.
- Persistent Headaches
Another signs of gluten intolerance are persistent headaches and migraines. If the headaches don’t stop, you should immediately consult your doctor.
- Routine Digestive Issues
When it comes to gluten intolerance, in many cases, some of the most obvious signs are gases, diarrhea, bloating and constipation that persist without a particular cause. For children constipation is a common sign of gluten intolerance.
This also can be a sign of gluten intolerance.
- Chronic Fatigue
Even though fatigue can be caused by a lot of things, from dehydration to something as severe as HIV, but one of the reasons can also be gluten intolerance. If you feel tired especially after meals that contain gluten we highly recommend you to consult your doctor as soon as possible.
In some cases Fibromyalgia is tightly linked with gluten intolerance. If you have been diagnosed with this disease, consider gluten intolerance as potential cause.
