9. A sudden appearance of autoimmune diseases
When your body experiences gluten sensitivity, you tend to suffer from many nasty symptoms. Those that we’ve covered before were somewhat mild in comparison to this one. To repeat a previous fact, it’s important to know how the body treats gluten in case of intolerance. It immediately deems it a foreign body and tends to overreact to its presence. Instead of ignoring it like other nutrients, it sends an alarm to the immune system.
This creates conditions that we know of as autoimmune diseases. They are caused by the body attacking its own cells in a desperate attempt to preserve health and eradicate any presumed threat. Therefore, it’s of the utmost importance that you scan all possible factors that may lead to them. A good way to start is by conducting a little experiment. It should consist of gradually removing gluten from your diet.
As you slowly remove such products, may or may not see your health improving. Now, there are many types of autoimmune diseases, 80 of them to be exact. Ones like lupus and multiple sclerosis aren’t surely caused by gluten. However, a person that already has MS or diabetes can see their symptoms get worse due to their gluten intolerance. Therefore, it’s best to play it safe and observe the signs that your body is sending.
Of course, it suffices to say that autoimmune diseases require an urgent visit to a medical expert. During your conversation, you should surely mention that you suspect a gluten allergy. You will then get tested for other parameters and subsequently sent to the nutritionist. There, you can safely cross all options off the list. A simple change in your diet can turn your whole life around in a matter of days.
