It’s a complex syndrome, but gluten intolerance is in the public’s eye, and more and more people are seeing health benefits from a gluten-free diet. Symptoms of gluten intolerance include abdominal discomfort or pain, diarrhea or constipation, bloating, muscular problems, headaches and migraines, acne, fatigue, and bone or joint pain.
Some people are born with celiac disease, a digestive disease that damages the small intestine. Those with celiac disease must avoid all gluten. But many others experience less devastating, but still troubling reactions from eating foods with gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains.
Many people have found that avoiding gluten improves their health dramatically. If you have symptoms of gluten sensitivity, you can try a gluten-free diet to see how you feel. You’ll need to avoid wheat, rye, barley, and a host of prepared foods that contain these products—including many you wouldn’t expect, such as ketchup and cold cuts.
