Signs of Gluten Intolerance


signs of gluten intolerance

There are several signs that point towards the need to know if you have signs of gluten intolerance. If you find signs of gluten intolerance in yourself or a loved one, please consult a doctor to ensure signs of gluten intolerance are not signs of celiac disease.

While signs of gluten intolerance present themselves in different ways for everyone, some signs seem more prevalent than others. Here is a list of signs that may indicate signs of gluten intolerance:

  • weight loss or lack of growth
  • nausea and/or vomiting
  • signs of anemia (leaving the person pale and fatigued)
  • signs of arthritis (swelling of hands, feet, and/or joints, swelling in legs, and signs of pain in the lower back)
  • diarrhea and signs of irritable bowel syndrome (bloating, signs of indigestion or heartburn, signs of constipation, or signs of loose stool)
  • constant exhaustion
  • depression and anxiety
  • tingling, numbness, signs of neuropathy (in extremities)
  • headaches and migraines

As signs of gluten intolerance are signs that your body is not able to break down certain proteins, signs of gluten intolerance can occur with any protein. So if you find signs of gluten intolerance in signs that relate to a protein other than wheat or barley, please consult signs of a doctor immediately.

If you do have signs of gluten intolerance, the next step should be to see signs of a doctor so you can discover signs of gluten intolerance treatment.

What test should I take when I see signs of gluten intolerance?

There are several tests for signs of gluten intolerance. The most common test is a biopsy that will take a sample tissue from your small intestine where signs of gluten intolerance begin to cause damage. If you have signs of gluten intolerance but do not want to get tested right away, try eliminating foods with gluten from your diet. Once signs of gluten intolerance appear to be gone after some time on a gluten-free diet, it might be possible for you or a loved one to reintroduce foods with gluten into their diets and still maintain signs of gluten intolerance.

If signs of gluten intolerance continue, please consider getting tested but keep in mind signs of gluten intolerance can take time to show signs of improvement on a gluten-free diet. If you experience signs of celiac disease and go on a gluten-free diet, your signs will begin to disappear within weeks.

Please keep in mind signs of gluten intolerance and signs of celiac disease are not the same thing. If you display signs of gluten intolerance but do not experience signs as severe as those experienced by people with signs of celiac disease, your doctor may be able to diagnose signs of gluten intolerance rather than signs of celiac disease.

The signs of being gluten intolerant usually present themselves in the signs of anemia (the signs you feel when you get very tired and pale because there is not enough iron in your blood, which comes from eating meat). People who have signs of gluten-intolerant usually lose weight without trying to. They might also have signs like vomiting or diarrhea.

Please consult signs of a doctor if signs of gluten intolerance are experienced by you or signs of a loved one.
