6. Painful Joints
As we know, gluten can cause inflammation in people who are intolerant to it. This inflammation can show up in our joints and cause painful swelling.
This is often one of the first symptoms people notice when they are looking at gluten intolerance. If left unchecked, this inflammation can lead to other, more serious, health conditions like the ones listed above.
7. Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis Pilaris is a skin condition that is characterized by having raised red and itchy bumps on the backs of a person’s upper arms, thighs and even their rear end. These bumps form as a result of too much keratin, which is a protein, forming in the skin.
Some people use creams or lotions to mitigate the annoying effects of keratosis pilaris, but they should try eliminating gluten from their diet. Issues occurring on the skin’s surface are often an excellent indicator of internal issues that need to be addressed.
