The Gluten Intolerant Saga - How Do You Know If Gluten Intolerance Is The Culprit

Updated on September 11, 2015

Studies Show That Gluten Intolerance Is Real

There have been numerous studies showing that gluten intolerance is real over the past 15 years or so however, not all people who think they are gluten sensitive really are. In fact studies on gluten intolerance show that very few people are actually sensitive. The way gluten causes trouble is that it damages the lining of the small intestine. People wits celiac disease really cannot have wheat in their diets and experience a host of symptoms including not absorbing nutrients from food, osteoporosis, infertility, nerve damage and seizures. It is believed that non-celiac gluten sensitivity produces some of the same symptoms but without the intestinal damage.

Although celiac disease can be diagnosed by a blood test, non-celiac cannot. Non-celiac is often diagnosed by the individual eliminating any gluten from the diet and

Is Gluten Free The Way To Go - Non-Celiac Gluten Facts

If you've experienced some uncomfortable, annoying and illnesses, maybe gluten free is the way to go for awhile. Gluten is a protein found in several wheat products. North American wheat has a higher content of gluten than European wheat giving it texture.

Many foods now have all the gluten information listed on the labels so people with these allergies can be aware of what they are buying. It is important to ask in restaurants if they serve gluten free items.

The prevalence of gluten intolerance has become very popular within the past few years. Why?

The biggest reason seems to be awareness. This and the diagnostic advances along with the trial and error of finding out that symptoms improve when cutting out gluten have been the reasons.

Is Gluten Intolerance for Real?

For most the symptoms are real but some doctors are yet to be convinced that the problem is gluten intolerance. But some people swear to the fact that they feel better when they keep wheat out of their diet and eat gluten free. For that reason, more and more foods are being given the label gluten free.

Gluten free food does not always mean that there are no traces of gluten in the food though. For some, like nut allergies, even the smallest trace of gluten can seem to give a reaction. So because of that gluten free foods are beginning to be produced in gluten free environments where there is no change of a trace of gluten getting into the food.

If people feel better not eating gluten then there must be something to it. It's not just in their head and something that they just imagine.
