Saturday Symptoms - Gluten Sensitivity
Updated: Jul 4, 2022
Gluten sensitivity is different than celiac disease, which is the disorder that’s diagnosed when someone has a true allergy to gluten.
However, even when someone tests negative for celiac disease, there’s still a chance he or she can have a gluten sensitivity.
We now know that gluten intolerance symptoms fall along a spectrum and having a sensitivity to gluten isn’t necessarily all-or-nothing. Symptoms of gluten sensitivity are widespread and can include:
• Digestive and IBS symptoms, including abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, constipation or diarrhoea
• “Brain fog,” difficulty concentrating and trouble remembering information
• Frequent headaches
• Mood-related changes, including anxiety and increased depression symptoms
• Ongoing low energy levels and chronic fatigue syndrome
• Muscle and joint pains
• Reproductive problems and infertility
• Skin issues, including dermatitis, eczema, rosacea and skin rashes (also called a “gluten rash” or “gluten intolerance rash”)
• Nutrient deficiencies, including anaemia (iron deficiency)
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, you may want to try an elimination diet. An elimination diet involves removing gluten from the diet completely for a period of at least 30 days.
What if your symptoms don’t improve when you remove all sources of gluten?
