11 SIGNS YOU MAY BE EXPERIENCING GLUTEN SENSITIVITY

What is Wheat Gluten?
Gluten is from {Latin “glue”} it is a protein composite found in wheat and related grains including barley, rye, and spelt. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keeps its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten is used in cosmetics, hair products, and other dermatological preparations.
So many people today are going through symptoms that are not traceable to any disease. I have personally come across a number of individuals with serious symptoms who were taking all kinds of medications without getting better. After few discussions and they disclosed that they have been eating wheat and its products like wheat bread, biscuits etc.  they were advised to try eliminating wheat in their diet for a few weeks, they initially showed reluctance and only to come back weeks later with joy to testify  they eliminated wheat as were advised and now their symptoms had disappeared.
In view of the above, it became necessary to put down something in this blog regarding the negative effect and agonies many persons have gone through unknown to them that it is traceable to wheat gluten.
Here are the 11 commonest signs occurring in many cases and watch out for them:
1.  Digestive issues like bloating, diarrhea, or even constipation are more in children. More than 55 diseases have been linked to gluten, the protein found in wheat rye and barley. It is estimated that over 90% of people who have gluten intolerance are never diagnosed
2.  Keratosis Pilaris also known as “chicken skin” on the back of your palms. This tends to be as a result of a fatty acid deficiency secondary to fat-malabsorption caused by gluten damaging the gut.
3.  Fatigue, brain fog or feeling tired after eating a meal containing gluten
4.  Diagnosis of autoimmune disease such as: Rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, lupus psoriasis, scleroderma or multiple sclerosis.

5. Neurological symptoms such as dizziness, or feeling of being off balance
6.  Hormone imbalances such as PMS, PCS or unexplained infertility.
7.  Insomnia – Inability to sleep
8.  migraine headaches
9. Diagnosis of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia
10. Inflammations, swellings or pains, skin rashes. Pains in your joints such as fingers, knees, or hips.
11. Mood issues, such as anxiety, depression, mood swings.
The list can continue. Watch out and try eliminating wheat and its products to see whether your condition will improve.
