7 Signs of Gluten Intolerance That Everyone Ignores

Most people who have gluten intolerance go through their life without being diagnosed and never receive the treatment they need to fix the problem. About 15% of all Americans have gluten sensitivity, or even worst, celiac disease. Are you one of these people that have it but never knew what the symptoms are?

To See If you Are, Here Are The Top 7 Gluten Intolerance Symptoms To Watch Out For:

Keratosis Pilaris

As some know it as chicken skin, it usually shows up on the back of the arms and also on the thighs. The main cause of this is the fatty acid deficiency that occurs when gluten damages the gut.

Persistent Headaches

Headaches are symptoms of so many medical problems. Migraines that are combined with daily diarrhea, a low iron count and a skin rash paint a different picture. If your headache occurs two hours after eating it could be a sign of gluten intolerance.

Autoimmune Diseases

There are a few cases where rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, lupus, scleroderma, and psoriasis are linked to gluten intolerance.

Routine Digestive Issues

One of the main signs of gluten intolerance is abnormal gas, diarrhea, bloating and constipation without a cause behind it. Constipation happens more often than the other symptoms.


Feeling unbalanced or as if the room is spinning around you is a common sign.

Chronic Fatigue

Fatigue can be caused from the simplest things like not drinking enough water to the extremely dangerous reasons like a severe case of HIV. If you think you are experiencing chronic fatigue it is best to speak to a doctor to find the main reason. Chronic fatigue is when you feel as if you brain is foggy not allowing you to think straight or feeling extremely tired after consuming a meal.


The people who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue usually have gluten intolerance but don’t know, or a doctor never put the pieces together. If you were diagnosed with either one of these try asking your doctor about gluten intolerance as it might be the reason for both of these to occur.
