We would like to offer our readers the most relevant and useful information for a more peaceful life. We seek solutions to everyday problems and health concerns. In this article, we will talk about gluten-related diseases. There are a large number of gluten-related diseases, gluten which is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. About 99% of people are gluten-tolerant.
It is estimated that 500,000 people are affected in France but 80% to 90% are undiagnosed.
If you recognize some of these symptoms, maybe you are part of them.
The TF1 newscast had broadcast a topic on “gluten-free madness”, with three main messages: a downright false, a pretty scrambled but ultimately wrong, and a real one.
THIERRY SOUCCAR Scientific journalist:
- The fake: only 1% of the population has a problem with gluten.
- The scrambled message was delivered by service nutritionist Boris Hansel. According to him, if people are healthier when they eat gluten-free, it is not because there is more gluten in their diet, but because, I quote in extenso: “these people ate too much gluten and too many industrial products enriched in gluten; it is therefore this return to normal that will improve the health and not the magic effect of having removed gluten from the diet. Well, not very clear, all that. But it is understood that gluten is, according to him, inconsequential, which is false .
- Finally, in the mouth of a gluten-free consumer: many gluten-free industrial products are bad for your health. And that’s true! as Mother Denis said (who surely ate buckwheat pancakes between two detergents).
According to THIERRY SOUCCAR Scientific journalist and author of 15 popular health books:
In all, in our countries, one in five or one in three people is likely to be improved by a gluten-free or gluten-free diet, which is significant (it also means that, unlike part of the population can consume gluten cereals without experiencing symptoms). See article: /
1 / Problems in the digestive system: gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. Children who eat a lot of gluten are likely to suffer from constipation.
2 / Keratosis pilaris (“goose skin” on the elbows). Keratosis pilaris is the result of a lack of fatty acid and vitamin A that occurs when the fat is poorly absorbed by the intestines. Which is a consequence of gluten.
3 / Feeling tired or exhausted after eating gluten.
4 / Autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, lupus, psoriasis, scleroderma or multiple sclerosis.
5 / Loss of balance, dizziness and other neurological symptoms.
6 / Hormonal dysfunction: PMS, PCOS or unexplained infertility
7 / Headache and migraine.
8 / Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia. Diagnosis done by the doctor without being able to find the cause.
9 / Swelling or pain in the fingers , hips or knees.
10 / Mood problems like depression, anxiety, mood swings etc.
How to detect intolerance and whether to stop eating gluten?
In order to verify your tolerance to gluten, it would be best to eliminate it from your diet for 2 or 3 weeks and then reintegrate it. Totally eliminate gluten from your body can take years since it is a very massive protein. It is therefore better to avoid eating as much as possible.
Since 2004, some food products for gluten intolerant are reimbursed by the Social Security. The request for reimbursement of gluten-free products for a celiac patient must be made by his doctor.
