Health Conditions That Can Improve When You Go Gluten-Free

While people who have celiac disease and gluten allergies most often eliminate gluten from their diet, there are other health conditions that can benefit from a gluten-free diet. In fact, you may find that eating gluten-free is the answer for what’s ailing you.

One of the greatest benefits of eating a gluten-free diet can be weight loss. When you eliminate gluten, you eliminate a lot of the unhealthy foods that cause weight gain in the first place. For example, you’ll limit how many cakes, cookies, and donuts you can consume.

While it’s possible to eat gluten-free and not lose weight, most people will find that they drop quite a few pounds when they make the transition. Though, if you substitute all of your bread for French fries, you may not lose weight!

Gluten has been known to cause inflammation in many people. As a result, it can exacerbate conditions such as multiple sclerosis, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, other autoimmune disorders, and even anxiety. You’ll find that your symptoms may decrease from eating gluten-free.

Diabetes is another condition that can improve when you consume a gluten-free diet. Foods that are high in gluten are also often high in simple carbohydrates and cause insulin and blood sugar levels to go haywire.

Many people who have irritable bowel syndrome find relief from eating a gluten-free diet. Gluten can cause problems such as constipation, diarrhea, gas, and cramping. You may find that by eliminating gluten you can eliminate many of these symptoms.

Infertility, especially if it’s caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome, can also be alleviated by letting go of gluten. For women who have insulin resistance, foods that are high in gluten tend to cause problems with blood sugar, leading to hormonal imbalance.

Many cancers can also be prevented by eating a healthy diet that’s high in fruits and vegetables and low in foods that contain high amounts of gluten. That’s because many foods that contain large amounts of gluten are also high in sugar, saturated fats, and additives.

A gluten-free diet can also lead to lower levels of cholesterol and decreased risk of heart disease and stroke. You’ll be eliminating many unhealthy foods and focusing on adding healthful foods such as lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables.

While many people avoid gluten because of an allergy or intolerance, the benefits of a gluten-free diet extend beyond that. There are many health conditions that can benefit from a gluten free diet and you’ll likely experience an improvement in your overall health.
