Gluten-Free Beauty: You may have these symptoms! ( full ingredient guide inside)

no gluten

Celiac Disease (CD)/Gluten Intolerance (GI) affects 1 out of 133 Americans, or about 3 million people. This autoimmune disorder is genetic and leaves one unable to digest gluten properly. The result of this autoimmune disorder is damage and flattening to the villi that are responsible for absorption of nutrients.  Those with CD have more advanced damage to their intestine as compared to those with GI, however, both are unable to tolerate gluten and have resulting health conditions. Amongst this community (and others without these conditions) there are some that also have what is called an IgE antibody response to gluten.

This reaction is an allergy that causes the skin to flare in ways such as redness, swelling, acne or rashes. The amount of those with both intolerances to gluten in the gut and on the skin is unknown but it appears more are popping up daily. Gluten is a protein found in barley, rye, oats, wheat and spelt. Oats are gluten free but research has shown that there is so much cross contamination with processing in the same places that wheat is processed that they test high for gluten.

However, now gluten free oats are available that are grown and processed apart from wheat. Exposure to gluten for someone with CD/GI can cause a myriad of health conditions such as lymphomas, osteoporosis anemia and migraines. Along with these health conditions some, but not all, experience digestive problems; like gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea.

The most common symptoms of gluten sensitivity include:
 
  • Fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal distress (gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, reflux)
  • Headaches (including migraines)
  • Infertility
  • Mouth sores
  • Weight loss/gain
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Moodiness/depression
  • Amenorrhea/delayed menarche (menstrual cycles)
  • Bone/joint/muscle pain
  • Dental enamel hypoplasia
  • Short stature
  • Seizures
  • Tingling numbness in the legs
 
Symptoms also include:
  • Abnormal liver test
  • Addison's disease
  • Alopecia
  • Anemia
  • Ataxia
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Crohn's disease
  • Dermatitis herpetiformis
  • Down syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Family history of celiac disease
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Hyperthyroidism/hypothyroidism
  • Total IgA deficiency
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1)
  • Infertility/spontaneous abortions/low birth-weight babies
  • Iron deficiency
  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • Malnutrition
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Non Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Osteoporosis, osteopenia, osteomalacia
  • Pancreatic disorders
  • Pathologic fractures
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Recurrent stomatisits
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Scherosing cholangitis
  • Sjogren syndrome
  • Systemic lupus
  • Turner syndrome
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Vitiligo

 At this time, the only treatment for CD/GI is to avoid gluten completely.
