Gluten Intolerance

 

Millions of Americans do not properly digest gluten, which is the offending protein in specific cereal grains. For these people, the consumption of foods containing any form of wheat, rye, barley, or triticale can lead to low levels of certain nutrients and a compromised gastrointestinal tract.

The impact of gluten ingestion is seen within the small intestines. An immunological reaction to gluten causes damage to the villi, the tiny hair-like projections that absorb nutrients from food.

So people who are gluten intolerant may not be absorbing optimum levels of nutrients, including; proteins, vitamins and minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and sometimes, even water. Poor management of gluten intolerance can lead to more severe conditions. Nutritional supplements help manage the nutritional and immune-related conditions common in people who are glucose intolerant.

Damage to the small intestines in those with gluten intolerances to be at an elevated risk for malnutrition and anemia. The ingredients contained within Alorex help maintain optimal nutrition and help prevent other conditions related to poor nutrient absorption resulting from nutritional inadequacy.

Once products or dietary sources containing grain are ingested, the immune system in gluten intolerant people responds by damaging the small intestine. This results in the formation of scar tissue and subsequent malabsorption of nearly all nutrients needed for growth and development.

 

 

The Cause of Gluten Intolerance

 
The cause of gluten intolerance remains unknown. Being a genetically inherited condition, researchers speculate that it is associated with a group of genes located on a specific chromosome (chromosome 6). These genes exist within the HLA class II antigens and are involved in the immunological response to gluten proteins.

 

 

Signs and Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance

 

The three main factors that establish when and how gluten tolerance appears are; age: when the person begins consuming gluten-containing foods, the amount of gluten contained in the food that is ingested, and the length of time an infant is breastfed. Interestingly, the longer a person is breastfed, the later in life symptoms appear. Additionally, symptoms are less common in persons who are breastfed for a greater duration. Lastly, some individuals will exhibit silent or latent gluten intolerance, meaning that the signs and symptoms may not appear even when on a normal gluten-containing diet.

In any event, gluten intolerance affects each individual differently and may occur at different sites in the body other than the gastrointestinal tract.


The common signs of gluten sensitivities may include:

  • bone or joint pain
  • diarrhea
  • fatigue
  • behavioral changes (e.g. depression)
  • fluctuation in weight gain/loss
  • minor, but recurring abdominal pain, bloating, and gas
  • pale, fatty stools
  • minor muscle cramping
  • itchy rash
  • tooth discoloration
  • failure to thrive in infants

Because gluten causes inflammation within the small bowel, removing gluten from the diet is a life-long modification for people who are gluten intolerant. Below are examples of foods and products that should be omitted in the diet of all with gluten sensitivities.


Gluten-free diet: The following grains contain gluten and are not allowed in any form: Wheat, rye, barley, kamut, einkorn, spelt, and triticale.


Frequently overlooked foods that often contain gluten:

  • Breading
  • Imitation bacon
  • Broth
  • Imitation seafood
  • Coating mixes
  • Marinades
  • Communion wafers
  • Processed meats
  • Croutons
  • Sauces
  • Pasta
  • Stuffings
  • Medication and Vitamin Coatings

 

 

Alorex

 

Alorex manages the common symptoms of your gluten intolerance by addressing the dietary deficiencies caused by damage to the small intestine.

A common occurrence in gluten intolerance is its effect on the small intestine's villi, which reduces the body's ability to absorb nutrients. The resulting nutritional deficiencies are thought to cause a wide spectrum of symptoms. Because gluten intolerance often leads to digestive complications, replacing these nutrients is vital for the management of the condition's most uncomfortable signs and symptoms.

Alorex has been designed for such a replenishment purpose. Alorex effectively reduces gastrointestinal disturbances and promotes nutrient absorption with an influx of digestive-supporting nutrients; all the while promoting a reduction in GI tract inflammation.



Frequently Asked Questions

 

What type of blood tests should I consider to address my glucose intolerance?

  • There is a particular series of blood tests that measure your immune system's response to gluten; largely, from the food you consume. Certain factors will be evaluated, including the presence of tTG antibodies. The blood tests include the following: tTG-IgA or Tissue Transglutaminase-IgA AGA-IgG or Antigliadin IgG AGA-IgA or Antigliadin IGA Total IgA.

I'm still suffering the effects of gluten intolerance, even though I've taken gluten out of my diet. Why?

  • There may be several reasons why you are not responding to a gluten-free diet, including: 

    -Another underlying, or co-existing condition
    -Small amounts of gluten, hidden in some dietary sources 
    -Ingestion of unsuspected sources of gluten, including starch, binders, and fillers found in vitamins and certain prescription medications.

Why do I need supplemental nutrition if I have a gluten intolerance?

  • Gluten intolerance has been shown to cause malabsorption of nutrients. What's more, a malnutrition state is likely to occur if proper nutrients needed to support the disease fail to be appropriately assimilated in the digestive process. There are many tests that can be done to evaluate the likelihood of you having malabsorption. However, these tests cannot definitively diagnose gluten intolerance because other conditions may also cause similar symptoms. This further emphasizes the importance of diet and nutritional supplementation in all people with gluten intolerance.
