Orlando Doctors Identify Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance/Sensitivity

People who are sensitive to or intolerant of gluten in foods experience bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, headaches, joint pain, fatigue, and mental fog.

These symptoms may also indicate celiac disease, so it is important to visit your Orlando Gastroenterology doctor. Treatment for gluten sensitivity differs from treatment for celiac disease.

Is it gluten sensitivity or celiac disease?

Two simple tests will distinguish whether a patient is gluten sensitive or has celiac disease. Celiac disease produces antibodies that are present in blood, stool, and saliva. Collecting and testing samples of these substances quickly show the presence or absence of celiac antibodies. If no antibodies are present, doctors usually determine that a patient is simply gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant.

What causes Ulcerative colitis?

Doctors don’t know what causes this disease. It may or may not be related to abnormalities of the immune system that exist in patients with the disease.

At Orlando Gastroenterology, we diagnose ulcerative colitis with testing that includes a physical exam, blood tests, stool sample evaluation, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, barium enemas, CT scans, and x-rays.

Treatment for gluten intolerance or sensitivity

The treatment for this condition is simple: eliminating gluten in one’s diet.
