Gluten intolerance occurs when undigested gluten proteins in the digestive system are treated like foreign objects in the body. This causes stomach discomfort and eventually hinders the body's ability to absorb nutrients.
This is usually accompanied with diarrhea and nausea, but here are more other symptoms that you may have if you are gluten intolerant.
1. Itchy skin
If there is a problem with the digestive tract, it can sometimes manifest itself externally through itchiness and/or eczema, dry and irritated skin.
2. Lactose intolerance
People who are lactose intolerant often can't handle gluten either. Important symptoms of lactose intolerance are heart burn, feeling bloated, and generally feeling unwell after eating.
3. Chronic migraines
The pain usually occurs around 30-60 minutes after eating.
4. Chronic fatigue
If you got enough sleep per night and still wake up feeling exhausted, perhaps you should look a little more closely at what you're eating.
Many people who have gluten intolerance feel dizzy after eating, it is as if losing your balance.
It is also known as soft-tissue rheumatism and denotes pain in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
7. Mood swings
People with gluten intolerance often feel nervous or excited for no apparent reason. They can also be short-tempered and irritable. Depressive moods can sometimes even be linked to gluten.
If you don't eat well, or the body doesn't handle the food very well, then the stomach complains often via pain and nausea.
