Gluten allergies are actually going to be far more common than you may realize. In fact, it has been estimated that 1 in 167 children and 1 in 111 adults that are otherwise healthy have this type of allergy.

While there are some symptoms that can alert you of a possible gluten allergy it is very important to understand that the only way to verify that this type of allergy actually exists is by going on a gluten free diet. If you go on this type of diet and find that the symptoms you were experiencing go away then it is safe to say that you have this type of allergy.

The following is a list of some of the most common symptoms you may experience with a gluten allergry:

Upper repository tract problems


Brain fog

Absent mindedness / chronic forgetfulness


Chronic fatigue syndrome


Mouth ulcersIron-deficiency anemia


Weight loss

Short stature in children



Abdominal bloating

Crohn's disease



Attention deficit and behavioral problems (in children and adults)


Skin problems


Now, there are certainly some things that any individual will need to keep in mind whenit comes to this type of allergy. First off, these symptoms are going to vary greatly from one person to the next. There are even going to be times when some people may have other symptoms that are not listed above.

Next, if you look at the above list you will see that some of the symptoms are going to be contradictory of one another. However, you have to realize that it is possible for someone to flip back and forth between different symptoms. Someone with this allergy does not have to exhibit the same symptoms all of the time.

One example of this would be when someone has diarrhea for some time and then they become constipated.If you are suffering from these symptoms it is not a guarantee that you actually have this type of allergy. That is why it is very important to stop eating foods with gluten in it and then see if you feel better. Parents that have children who could have this type of allergy will find that it is going to be very important to observe their child's behavior and then continually ask them how they feel.

Those that plan to go to the doctor for a possible gluten allergy will want to make note of some very important things. First off, pay attention to your mental status after you eat a meal with gluten in it. Also, document if you have been suffering from any changes in your weight.

There will be times when you could develop a rash as well. Try to document how this rash feels. Is it raised or is it flat? Are there any situations or conditions that make the rash worse or better? For example, does a warm shower make it better or worse? All of this information will help your health care professional identify what may be wrong with you.
