Wheat intolerance, often incorrectly referred to as a wheat allergy, is a growing area of concern for many people. If left undiagnosed or untreated, it can be a very debilitating thing that can severely lower your quality of life. There are a few key symptoms that you should be aware of.

Digestive System Symptoms

People with wheat intolerance often have a feeling of bloating. Some of them suffer from severe diarrhea while others suffer from constipation. You should also be wary of extreme flatulence.

Neurological Symptoms

Many sufferers of wheat intolerance suffer from severe headaches. They also complain of a tired, hazy feeling that causes an inability to focus. Depression and other mood disorders are also problems for many people with wheat intolerance.

Joint Issues

Problems with joints are another common problem for people with wheat intolerance. Arthritis is common. Many people also complain of joint stiffness.

Frequent Illness

Wheat intolerance can lead to a suppressed immune system. This can cause frequent colds and outbreaks of rashes. People who get cold sores and canker sores may experience them more frequently. People with psoriasis will also see an increased recurrence of the rash.

Wheat intolerance is a more common affliction than most people realize. If you find yourself suffering from several of these symptoms, it is important that you speak with your doctor about the possibility of suffering from this condition.
