10 Signs that Gluten is Damaging Your Health
10 Signs that Gluten is Damaging Your Health – Sign 1: Digestive Issues Occasionally suffering from constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive issues might seem normal.
However, if either one of them happens almost too often, it could be a sign that gluten is starting to wreck your body.
Not surprisingly, this is also a common symptom experienced by gluten intolerant individuals and those with celiac disease.
In some cases, they may even have a particularly pale and unpleasant bowel mainly because the condition prevents their body from absorbing nutrients properly.
According to research, gluten consumption causes digestive issues by disrupting the barriers of the intestine, thus allowing harmful substances to move through towards the bloodstream.
Around 14% of Americans suffer from the so-called IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) which causes all sorts of digestive issues. The consumption of gluten makes the symptoms even worse than before. In some cases, it may even be the cause of IBS.
Around 50% of gluten intolerant individuals suffer from diarrhea on a regular basis, while around 25% of them suffer from constipation.
While this is common to gluten intolerant and celiac-afflicted individuals, those who have been consuming foods with gluten can also be negatively affected.
If you begin to experience such symptoms, you might want to stop the consumption of foods containing gluten as soon as possible. If left unattended, it may lead to some serious issues such as dehydration, fatigue, and the loss of electrolytes in the body.
How exactly does it happen?
Upon eating a gluten-containing food, it moves through your stomach then into the small intestine. From there, gluten is broken down into gliadin with the help of an enzyme known as tissue transglutaminase (tTG). Once broken down, it then moves through your digestive system.
From there, your digestive system, with the help of the gut-associated lymphoid tissue, will review it for any potential harm it may cause to your body. If you’re not gluten intolerant, it will be directly absorbed by your body.
However, if you’re sensitive to gluten, the protein will be considered as a dangerous substance, and your digestive system will produce antibodies to attack it.
The problem is that they attack the tTG as well, thereby causing the microvilli in your intestine to become damaged. Over time, the microvilli will start breaking down, tearing up the walls of your intestine and letting food particles and other harmful substances move into your bloodstream.
If this happens, you’ll start experiencing digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, diarrhea, and even malnutrition.
