How Bad is the Problem?
We cannot pin down exactly how many people are affected by gluten sensitivity because it is so hard to diagnose, but researchers estimate that it may be as many as 1 in 20 Americans. Gluten sensitivity is a condition that causes a wide range of symptoms including indigestion, bloating, abdominal pain, joint pain, fatigue, headaches/migraines and brain fog whenever an affected person eats gluten-containing foods. Though people suffering from gluten sensitivity experience many of the same symptoms as people with celiac disease, it is not the same condition. Though the topic of this article about gluten, we are really just getting started with identifying things in foods we eat every day that are terrible for our body and from which we need protection.
How Do I Know If I Am Gluten Sensitive?
Currently, there is no procedure for physicians to follow in order to diagnose gluten sensitivity but there are a few questions that you can ask yourself to determine if you may have this condition.
Do you experience indigestion or upset stomach, especially after eating bread or processed foods?
Do you have frequent headaches, suffer from migraines or have trouble focusing?
Do you feel tired after eating?
Do you have joint pain?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, your problems may be caused by sensitivity to gluten.
What I can do to find relief?
Traditionally the treatment for both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity has been the total avoidance of gluten.
