9 common symptoms that may suggest gluten intolerance

September 22, 2018 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Gluten intolerance - which is becoming more and more widespread - is an altered intestinal tolerance towards this protein nutrient that, if permanent, turns into a real allergic form, known as celiac disease.

Because intolerance is not a disease, but rather paraphysiological condition, refraining from consuming gluten-containing foods helps avoid intestinal inflammation. 

It is therefore important to know the main nine standard symptoms of gluten intolerance so that you can get to know your body better and safeguard your health.

1. Skin and nail problems

Keratosis pilaris and dermatitis herpetiformis may be a consequence of gluten sensitivity. In this case, there will be itching and rashes on the body, and brittle nails that break easily.

2. Intestinal problems

The main symptoms are associated with intestinal dysfunction such as, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal swelling, constipation - the same signs typical of irritable bowel syndrome, with which gluten intolerance is often confused.


3. Unexplained weight changes

Sudden and continuous changes in weight may be a consequence of inflammatory processes at the cellular level and metabolic disorders - which are an indication of a malabsorption characteristic of gluten intolerance.

4. Central nervous system disorders

Anxiety, insomnia, depression, headaches, problems with concentration and fatigue are the consequences of intestinal irritability produced by gluten intolerance.

5. Hormonal imbalance

Hormonal disorders typical of gluten sensitivity are an irregular menstrual cycle, sudden weight fluctuations, acne, and these symptoms tend to be amplified during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, especially in women.


6. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder known as ADHD can occur in both children and adults as hyperactivity and the inability to pay attention and control their impulses.

7. Dental problems

The malabsorption of food typical of gluten intolerance affects calcium which causes dental problems such as - tooth hypersensitivity, enamel erosion, tooth decay, cavities, and mouth ulcers.


8. Iron deficiency anemia

Iron is also a victim of intestinal malabsorption of gluten intolerance. This results in reduced blood volume, fatigue, shortness of breath, headaches, whitish, gray, or bluish skin color, mucous, and even arthritis.

9. Autoimmune diseases

Many people with autoimmune diseases have gluten intolerance. In fact, the celiac disease itself is classified as an autoimmune disease and increases the risk of developing more serious ones such as autoimmune thyroiditis, autoimmune liver disease, Crohn's disease, diabetes, vitiligo, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.
