Here are six symptoms that could indicate that you might very possibly have an intolerance to gluten.
1. Constant Headaches or Migraines
If you experience headaches or extreme migraines that leave you completely debilitated, you may have an intolerance to gluten.
Interestingly enough, migraines are very common in people who suffer from gluten-intolerance.
These headaches can be pretty severe so you should give yourself the chance to recover if you ever experience them.
2. Mouth Problems
People who have an intolerance to gluten may also suffer from “aphthous stomatitis”, which is a condition in which you constantly experience mouth ulcers as well as canker sores.
Additionally, due to malabsorption, people who are intolerant to gluten have a much harder time keeping their teeth healthy since they no doubt have very low levels of calcium.
3. Sudden Weight Gain
One of the symptoms that has left a majority of the gluten-intolerant community baffled is the unexplained, sudden weight gain they experience.
Normally, weight gain in people who are gluten-intolerant could result from two things: 1) they have systemic inflammation, which was triggered by gluten, or 2) malabsorption and gut permeability, which are two side-effects of being gluten-intolerant.
