Gluten sensitivity - symptoms and how to test
If you get sick after consuming gluten, you have gluten sensitivity. You may have some gas, bloating, and fatigue. Many foods, including wheat, contain the protein known as gluten. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is another name for gluten intolerance. Neither celiac disease nor a wheat allergy is the same thing. According to studies, about 6% of the U.S. population may be gluten intolerant. More people are affected by this than by celiac disease, which affects just approximately 1% of the population: adults, especially women. Men are less likely to experience a gluten reaction. Before attempting a gluten-free diet, it is crucial to determine whether or not you have celiac disease. In some instances, a return to seemingly normal blood test results can be achieved by removing gluten from the diet. If these tests show celiac disease, your doctor will likely request an Endoscopy.
