It gives bread elasticity, is a great form of nutrition, and for many people, eating foods that contain gluten is not a problem.

However, a gluten allergy is a hypersensitivity disorder of the immune system. Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that is hereditary.

It is estimated that over 90% of people who have coeliac disease are not diagnosed or may be misdiagnosed.

There are over 300 known symptoms, some of which include behaviour changes, depression, irritability, bone or joint pain, chronic diarrhoea or constipation or both, fatigue, weakness or lack of energy, unexplained anaemia, unexplained weight loss or weight gain, missed menstrual periods, infertility in males and females and failure to thrive (in infants).

Gluten intolerance means that your body simply doesn’t like gluten. It is not a food allergy, and eating gluten does not usually cause damage.

Some symptoms of gluten intolerance (non-coeliac) include abdominal pain, acne, bloating, eczema, headaches, heartburn, mental fogginess, frequent illness, hypoglycaemia and numbness.

For these people, some gluten in the diet is ok! Just don’t over-do it.[/fusion_text][/fullwidth]
