Gluten is a form of protein that is very hard to digest. It is usually found in foods like barley and wheat. This protein is responsible for many health problems. Some people are unable to digest gluten leading to a condition called gluten-intolerance. Without proper care, this can lead to several serious diseases like celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, anemia, fatigue, irritable bowel disease and more.
Foods that commonly contain gluten include cake, cereals, biscuits, bread, pasta, sauces, some commercial salad dressings and readymade soups.
Gluten intolerance has several symptoms such as too much fatigue, thinning of fatigue, anemia, pain in the abdomen, constipation, unexpected weight gain or loss, numbness in your limbs, headaches, pain in the joints, gas and bloating or diarrhea. If these symptoms are triggered by the consumption of foods with gluten, it is best to get yourself tested.
