Over time, gluten intolerance may lead to unexplained weight gain. There are a series of medical problems that are associated with gluten intolerance.
Among other medical complications associated with gluten intolerance include inability to lose weight, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, headaches and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. In case of gluten intolerance, health experts advise omission of gluten from diet to maintain a healthy weight.
The most common gluten foods include grains, such as wheat, barley, rye and oats. These gluten-containing foods are found in grain-based products, such as breads, pasta, breakfast cereals, muffins, baked foods and cookies. Moreover, seasoning and complementary foods, such as dressings and sauces also contain gluten.
Besides maintaining a healthy body weight, one’s medical condition needs to be administered with other lifestyle modifications, such as that of moderate physical activity on a daily basis. Healthy lifestyle options help to prevent complications, such as gastrointestinal distress, behavioural problems and autoimmune diseases by managing calorie intake, levels of physical activity and the body's ability to metabolise energy provided by foods.
