Check out this website taken from Live Love Fruits.  If you have any of these symptoms then you are suffereing from Gluten Intolerance, just like me : http://livelovefruit.com/2013/06/gluten-intolerance-symptoms/


1. Digestive Issues

gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation


2. Nutritional Deficiencies 

due to malabsorption (e.g., suffering from anemia (iron malabsorption) or “chicken skin” on back of arms (result of fatty acid deficiency and vitamin A deficiency secondary to fat-malabsorption caused by gluten damaging the gut)

3. Weight loss or weight gain

gluten protein disrupts metabolism functioning

4. Fat in stools

gluten prevents fat absorption

5. Aching joints

gluten triggers inflammation in the body, causing swelling and pain in your joints

6. Depression

intestinal damage caused by wheat leads to malabsorption, and prevents our guts from absorbing zinc and B vitamins which are crucial for regulating our moods

7. Eczema

related to the inflammation that gluten triggers in the body

8. Headaches

inflammation from gluten puts a lot of pressure on our blood vessels, which can cause pounding headaches

9. Exhaustion

gluten is incredibly hard to process by the body, and slows our digestion, thus making us tired

10. Irritability & Behavioural changes

same as depression, our bodies cannot absorb minerals and vitamins when our gut is destroyed by the gluten we eat. These vitamins and minerals help regulate our mood

11. Irregular menstruation, infertility, miscarriages

gluten intolerance creates imbalances to our hormones and can lead to a myriad of female fertility and menstruation issues

12. Cramps, tingling, & numbness

triggered by inflammatory response the body has to gluten protein

13. Slow infant and child growth

due to nutrient malabsorption

14. Decline in dental health

gluten sticks to our teeth and this causes bacteria to thrive
