What will happen to me if I eat gluten despite being gluten sensitive?

You’ll develop a certain discomfort associated with gluten intolerance. You see, gluten is a protein found in a lot of foods including wheat, and wheat forms the basis of different types of flour. It’s also found in barley, rye, and a lot of other grains. This means it’ll be abundant in pasta, cereal, beer, and bread.

Gluten is also found in some cosmetic products as well as other medications.

Gluten sensitive people can get either of these two problems: Gluten intolerance (non celiac gluten sensitivity), or celiac disease.

Non celiac gluten sensitivity is a much milder case and will often cause nausea, tiredness, and bloating. It affects about 6% of the US population and affects mostly women in that statistic.

However, the celiac disease is much more serious. People suffering from celiac disease have a kind of autoimmune problem. This means, when gluten gets into the body, the body treats it aggressively like it’s a foreign body.

It unfortunately results in problems with the digestive tracts as well as general inflammations. Celiac disease is caused by abnormal genes and it affects about 1% of the US population.
