Many people who are beginning gluten-free diets are not doing it out of necessity but because they are either self diagnosing a stomach problem or because they believe that eating gluten-free can be healthier or help with weight loss. While eating gluten-free can help with any of those things, getting a proper diagnosis is extremely important.
According to this great report in U.S. News, Dr. Joseph Murray from the Mayo Clinic believes that Celiac Disease is on the rise and more people are blaming wheat for their stomach issues because people eat more processed wheat products than ever before and because of genetic modification there is a higher gluten content in wheat products.
Because the gluten content is so much higher a new condition called non-celiac gluten-sensitivity has rapidly arisen and followers of a gluten-free diet claimed to experience less bloating and fatigue than when they were eating gluten.
So what should you do? If you think that wheat or gluten are causing your ailments, get tested. Don’t want to see a doctor today? Check out the CeliacSure Test Kit and test yourself for celiac disease from the comfort of your own home. If the test comes back positive, follow-up with your doctor.
