Gluten intolerance comes from a genetic disorder that is difficult to diagnose in many cases. Gluten is contained in foods that are made using wheat, barley, or rye. Those who are unable to tolerate gluten normally experience a wide variety of symptoms.
Because these symptoms are so common, it can be difficult to differentiate between normal responses to foods containing high levels of carbohydrates and gluten intolerance. The most common symptoms, bloating and lethargy, indicate sensitivity. Bloating alone tells you something you have eaten is triggering an adverse response from the digestive system. We often mistake bloating for just being very full.
But the truth is bloating is caused by swelling of the intestines and the abdominal wall. It is the body’s way of trying to protect us from something we have eaten, which could be harmful to our system. Bread and sugary foods are the most common cause of this type of response.
If you experience bloating and lethargy frequently after eating, there is a good chance something in your regular diet should be cut out as soon as possible. The longer we continue to eat foods that cause this dramatic immune response, the more likely we are to develop a serious health condition such as heart disease or cancer.
