This topic is still controversial, but evidence shows that in addition to the autoimmune disorder celiac disease, there is a milder form of gluten intolerance called non-celiac gluten sensitivity. If you suspect that gluten is causing symptoms such as GI distress, fatigue, joint pain, or headaches, see a professional to rule out a gluten sensitivity. If you know you are sensitive it is extremely important to completely avoid gluten in your diet for the rest of your life. Wheat flour is the main culprit, but processed foods contain many wheat additives. Fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies are free to be enjoyed in a gluten free diet, so bon appétit!
