Have you been experiencing chronic bloating, constipation, flatulence, diarrhea, lack of energy, stomach ache, lactose intolerance, anemia, arthritis or other pains?
If so, you are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from gluten sensitivity. Gluten is a protein duo found naturally in wheat, rye, and barley. Women of European descent are at highest risk. Although many people have the symptoms, for some reason they remain undiagnosed.
If you suffer from any of the gluten-sensitivity symptoms, ask your doctor for a blood test. You can also see a Dietitian who may be better trained to diagnose and treat this food-related illness. There is no known cure but to eliminate gluten from your diet.
The good news is a gluten-free diet will contribute to reduction in your symptoms.
