Gluten intolerance is not necessarily easy to spot and reports now estimate that up to 6% of Americans may be intolerant to the protein most commonly found in whole grains. There are some indications that can help you recognize whether gluten is prompting an abnormal response in your body. Registered dietitian Brooke Alpert recommends considering an elimination diet if you have these symptoms frequently and starting a conversation with a primary care provider, gastroenterologist, or registered dietitian. It’s important to note that gluten intolerance differs from a gluten allergy and celiac disease so you should seek an expert opinion before making any assumptions or major dietary changes.
