GLUTEN INTOLERANCE
~
PCOS Lady:
Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease can be wicked to and in you… Three sets of symptoms are listed for you with the sites… The symptoms overlap other medical conditions… Headaches may be explained by being tested for one of these conditions…
~ I stress everyone be tested for Celiac Disease to know…
~
FACT: Most doctors can not draw a diagnosis from all your symptoms! They jump to diagnose you on a few only, hence a misdiagnosis!
FACT: Most doctors can not read your blood tests as a whole, only a few results they understand together…
~ I suggest you see an Endocrinologist, who specializes on internal chemistry, etc… (especially Diabetes)

SYMPTOMS COUNT! ~ All your symptoms… ~ Keep track of them… ~ It is your life!

Gluten Intolerance Symptoms – How Do You Know If Gluten Is Making You Sick?
~
* What are gluten intolerance symptoms?
* Are people with gluten intolerance just fussy eaters with a new excuse for their picky food habits?
~
Research shows that gluten sensitivity in some form, including celiac disease and mild gluten intolerance, affects approximately 15% of the US population. These statistics are likely to be similar in Western countries with similar health issues and dietary patterns.
~ Are you one of these people?
~ How do you recognize gluten intolerance symptoms?
~
First of all let’s * identify the difference between celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Celiac disease is an immune reaction, a severe sudden onset allergic reaction, to the protein called gluten. This is commonly found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. While celiac disease is initially an auto-immune disorder, it is also a disease of malabsorption, because essential nutrients are not absorbed. Therefore one of the most devastating symptoms of long-term undiagnosed celiac disease is malnutrition.
~
Gluten intolerance often has a slower onset than celiac disease, and may be hard to diagnose due to the broad range of symptoms and causes.
~
If you imagine a continuum of gluten intolerance symptoms, celiac disease is usually at the most extreme end with immediate autoimmune reactions. Some people with celiac disease may not have symptoms, but internally malabsorption and malnutrition can erode health over many years. Both celiac disease and gluten intolerance can be exacerbated by emotional stress, infection, surgery, pregnancy and childbirth. Every individual with some level of gluten intolerance or allergy may experience different shades of symptoms, hence the challenge for medical practitioners to diagnose.
~
So what are the specific symptoms of gluten intolerance and
celiac disease?

~
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~ Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption e.g. low iron levels
~ Gastro-intestinal problems (bloating, pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea)
~ Fat in the stools (due to poor digestion)
~ Aching joints
~ Depression
~ Eczema
~ Head aches
~ Exhaustion
~ Irritability and behavioural changes
~ Infertility, irregular menstrual cycle and miscarriage
~ Cramps, tingling and numbness
~ Slow infant and child growth
~ Decline in dental health
~
Undiagnosed for long periods of time, food intolerances have been found to contribute to diabetes, bowel cancer, anemia and osteoporosis.

Understanding Gluten-Free Special Diets

~ Dummies … Symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease … #4 of 7 in series segments …
Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity share some of the same symptoms. Although the actual damage occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the small intestine, the symptoms manifest in many different ways and often show up throughout your entire body.
~
Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease have hundreds of symptoms; the following lists don’t contain them all, but are a good sampling:
~
* Gastrointestinal symptoms: These are some of the “classic” — although not the most common — symptoms of celiac disease:
~
~ Abdominal pain and distension
~ Acid reflux
~ Bloating
~ Constipation
~ Diarrhea
~ Gas and flatulence
~ Greasy, foul-smelling, floating stools
~ Nausea
~ Vomiting
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~
* Nongastrointestinal symptoms: Interestingly, although gluten sensitivity and celiac disease affect the gut, most people’s symptoms are not gastrointestinal in nature. This partial list includes just some of the more than 250 symptoms not centered in the digestive tract.
~
~ Fatigue and weakness (due to iron-deficiency anemia)
~ Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies
~ Headaches (including migraines)
~ Joint/bone pain
~ Depression, irritability, listlessness, and mood disorders
~ “Fuzzy brain” or an inability to concentrate
~ Infertility
~ Abnormal menstrual cycles
~ Dental enamel deficiencies and irregularities
~ Seizures
~ Clumsiness (ataxia)
~ Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)
~ Respiratory problems
~ Canker sores (apthus ulcers)
~ Lactose intolerance
~ Eczema/psoriasis
~ Rosacea (a skin disorder)
~ Acne
~ Hashimoto’s disease, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune disorders
~ Early onset osteoporosis

Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet
http://www.kitchendaily.com/read/why-you-should-eliminate-wheat-your-diet?icid=maing-grid7|maing9|dl8|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D245778
~ Kitchen Daily … Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet … Gluten, a protein composite of gliadin and glutenin found in wheat and grains, may be addictive. Perhaps this explains the uncontrollable cravings for carbs many of us experience. This news was hard for us to digest, but not nearly as hard as gluten is on our intestines.
~
Since the 1950s, when scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it grow faster, we’ve seen a few issues arise. Wheat is not as healthy as it used to be. U.S. plant scientist, Norman Borlaug, who won the the Nobel Prize for his work in wheat hybridization may have introduced some compounds that aren’t exactly friendly to our bodies. In fact, there are proteins found in today’s wheat that scientists can’t trace back to the original plant.
~
What could this mean for you? Unfortunately, digestion issues along with a slew of potential diseases, such as celiac’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and IBS. These problems can pertain to anyone, not just to those with severe gluten reactions or celiac’s disease.

~ Green Med Info … Despite popular opinion wheat consumption may not be beneficial to health. These two published articles make a strong argument against perceiving wheat intolerance as simply a matter of allergy/genetic intolerance in a minority subset of the human population, but rather as a species-specific intolerance, applicable to all.
