Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Do you notice changes in the way that you feel after eating a tasty plate of pasta or thick and flavorful sandwich? Do you find that you often experience abdominal cramps, gas, bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, acid reflux, and/or nausea after eating those yummy cupcakes? What about the rest of your body; any headaches, mood swings, decreased energy, inability to think clearly or skin conditions after eating that slice of cheesy pizza? If you experience any of the above symptoms after eating wheat, barley, or rye you may have a sensitivity to these foods which could cause serious health issues if consumed over an extended period of time.

In addition to the above listed immediate reactions to gluten, many people also experience a variety of other health issues as a result of gluten including:

  • Undesired weight loss

According to a review paper in the New England Journal of Medicine, there are 55 diseases that can be caused by eating gluten. While having one of the above listed diseases or health issues doesn’t automatically mean that you have a gluten intolerance, it is a good idea to get tested if you have any chronic illness to rule out the possibility and potentially improve your overall quality of life. If you suspect you may be suffering from undiagnosed Celiac disease or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, you’ve come to the right place!
