Do You Know What Red, Itchy Bumps On Your Arms Might Be A Sign Of?

So you tested negative for celiac disease, but something is still wrong. Did you know that you don't need to have celiac disease to be gluten intolerant? Some people have a mild sensitivity to gluten that isn't easy to detect with tests. Sometimes, the process of elimination is the only way to be sure. Here are some signs to watch out for, however, that you might not have realized are related to gluten intolerance.

Stomach pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation after eating wheat or rye products commonly indicate a gluten intolerance. This is because gluten can damage the stomach lining of people who are allergic to it. But this is not where the symptoms end, so don't rule gluten sensitivity out just because you don't have stomach discomfort.

You may find after a routine checkup that you have deficiencies in some essential minerals. This is because a gluten intolerance can contribute to malabsorption.

People with gluten intolerance may experience bad headaches or migraines. They may also experience dizziness and fatigue. Mood swings are also common.

Gluten symptoms can mimic fibromyalgia, an auto-immune disease that causes fatigue and widespread muscle pain.

Finally, are you lactose intolerant? Gluten and diary intolerances are often bedfellows.

Ultimately, if you experience any kind of symptoms you should see a doctor. But if you are gluten intolerant, a simple change in diet might result in a major improvement.
