A person who is gluten intolerant has no choice. At the moment, there is no other solution for them apart from cutting out gluten entirely and adhering to a strict diet.
For someone who is allergic to gluten, it’s the same: there is no alternative.
Do you ever suffer from digestive problems? Chronic fatigue? Minor ailments that you put down to the stress of everyday life or a nervous temperament?
If your answer is “yes”, then you might be gluten intolerant. Serious digestive troubles aren’t always present so an underlying problem may be hidden. To try and find out, there are several blood tests available as well as intestinal biopsies. It must be said that these aren’t 100% reliable. Some people who are gluten intolerant have perfectly normal results over a greater or lesser period.
But that’s not all…Gluten has adverse effects and some people have enormous sensitivity to this substance without actually being intolerant. According to researchers, these people could make up a large percentage of the world’s population.
Of course we can’t put all the ills in the world down to gluten. On the other hand it might be a good idea to eat less of it to improve one’s quality of life.
Many top sports people have adopted a gluten free diet to improve their performance.
