Sign 1: Digestive Issues
Occasionally suffering from constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive issues might seem normal. However, if either one of them happens almost too often, it could be a sign that gluten is starting to wreck your body.
Not surprisingly, this is also a common symptom experienced by gluten intolerant individuals and those with celiac disease. In some cases, they may even have a particularly pale and unpleasant bowel mainly because the condition prevents their body from absorbing nutrients properly.
According to research, gluten consumption causes digestive issues by disrupting the barriers of the intestine, thus allowing harmful substances to move through towards the bloodstream. Around 14% of Americans suffer from the so-called IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) which causes all sorts of digestive issues. The consumption of gluten makes the symptom even worse than before. In some cases, it may even be the cause of IBS.
Around 50% of gluten intolerant individuals suffer from diarrhea on a regular basis, while around 25% of them suffer from constipation.
While this is common to gluten intolerant and celiac-afflicted individuals, those who have been consuming foods with gluten can also be negatively affected. If you begin to experience such symptoms, you might want to stop the consumption of foods containing gluten as soon as possible. If left unattended, it may lead to some serious issues such as dehydration, fatigue, and the loss of electrolytes in the body.
How exactly does it happen?
Upon eating a gluten-containing food, it moves through your stomach then into the small intestine. From there, gluten is broken down into gliadin with the help of an enzyme known as tissue transglutaminase (tTG). Once broken down, it then moves through your digestive system.
From there, your digestive system, with the help of the gut-associated lymphoid tissue, will review it for any potential harm it may cause to your body. If you’re not gluten intolerant, it will be directly absorbed by your body. However, if you’re sensitive to gluten, the protein will be considered as a dangerous substance, and your digestive system will produce antibodies to attack it.
The problem is that they attack the tTG as well, thereby causing the microvilli in your intestine to become damaged. Over time, the microvilli will start breaking down, tearing up the walls of your intestine and letting food particles and other harmful substances move into your bloodstream.
If this happens, you’ll start experiencing digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, diarrhea, and even malnutrition.
Sign 2: Skin Problems
Intolerance to gluten doesn’t just affect your digestive tract, it also affects your skin as well. If you’re starting to experience skin conditions which you never had before, it might be because gluten is starting to take its toll on your body.
According to research, 7 out of 10 celiac-afflicted individuals experience symptoms on their skin. There’s actually a variety of them, but the most common which is linked to gluten is dermatitis herpetiformis.
Dermatitis herpetiformis is a gluten-caused skin condition in which you experience one of the itchiest rashes you could ever have. It’s a really painful rash which is often found in 15-25% of individuals who have celiac disease. If you have this symptom, you’ll notice lesions which appear on any part of your body, mostly in the knees, elbows, and buttocks. Fortunately, this only happens to individuals who have a diagnosed or undiagnosed celiac disease.
Another common symptom is a very dry and flaky skin. Although it’s still not clear whether the consumption of gluten directly causes dry skin, some physicians believe that poor nutrient absorption caused by celiac disease can steal the nutrients which your skin is supposed to have, thereby leading to a very dry skin. In some cases, this can be remedied by resorting to a gluten-free diet.
Lastly, there’s psoriasis, a skin condition which causes your skin to develop red and scaly plaques. According to several studies, regular gluten consumption is strongly linked to the development of this condition.
Those who are diagnosed with psoriasis have huge amounts of antibodies in their bloodstreams which only suggests that their bodies are reacting to the gluten in their diets regardless if they’re diagnosed with celiac disease or not.
While it’s not yet clear whether gluten is directly causing psoriasis or not, there are some reports that show people who followed a gluten-free diet were able to experience a significant improvement in their skin symptoms even if they don’t have celiac disease.
Sign 3: Recurring Migraine
A lot of people suffer from a headache or migraine every once in a while. In fact, it’s a common condition which affects around 10-12% of the Western population. However, if migraine appears too often, it can be a cause for concern, especially if you’re gluten-intolerant.
Interestingly, a number of studies revealed that those with gluten intolerance are more prone to migraines compared to others. If you have migraines that occur regularly without any clear cause, it might be because you’re sensitive to gluten.
You might wonder: what is the connection between gluten and migraine?
For some people, gluten could trigger migraine. There have been a number of studies that confirmed the connection between celiac disease and migraine. A recurring migraine can be an early indicator of celiac disease, and those suffering from celiac disease are more likely to experience recurring migraines.
According to researchers, the connection between celiac disease and migraine is due to the increased gut permeability and inflammation. As your gut starts “leaking” inflammatory compounds toward the bloodstream, they can easily find their way into the brain, thereby causing migraine.Other Details
