Gluten Intolerance and Obesity

Before, Celiac disease was associated with muscle wasting or failure to thrive. It is said to hinder the body’s capacity to absorb nutrients. That said, it can impede growth and causes some developmental problems that have something to do with malnutrition. Because of its effects, celiac diseasewas typically diagnosed only in children that were emaciated or those who showed obvious health problems.

Just recently, studies have shown that some individuals who are diagnosed with celiac or gluten allergy are more likely to gain weight. According to statistics, roughly around 10% of the world population has problems with gluten. Watch this video and learn more.
