Recent study explains that it may be caused by the way gut bacteria responds to gluten, if you don’t know yet gluten is a protein in grains like barely, wheat and rye.
This is an immune disease that affects gluten intolerant people. About 1% of the People the United States are suffering from celiac disease.

- unexplained iron-deficiency anemia
- bone or joint pain
- bone loss or osteoporosis
- depression or anxiety
- tingling numbness in the hands and feet
- seizures or migraines
- missed menstrual periods
- infertility or recurrent miscarriage
- canker sores inside the mouth
