Gluten-Free Life (Infographic)

Dr. Nikola Djordjevic

October 30, 2018

Going gluten-free has been a very popular trend in recent years, but not all people who’ve switched to the diet are fully aware of all the facts about gluten, and whether or not a gluten-free diet can benefit their health. There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye, and that is why our team at MedAlertHelp.org created this infographic full of interesting facts about gluten.
What is gluten? It’s a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale. It owes its name to the glue-like properties of wet dough. Avoiding foods that contain the aforementioned grains won’t make your diet 100% gluten-free though, as the protein can be found in many store-bought items such as sauces, salad dressings, milkshakes, beer, soups, and so on.

Being aware of the hidden sources of gluten is very important for people with celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergies. Consuming gluten would cause them to bloat, have abdominal pain and headaches, feel tired, be constipated and/or have diarrhea, have joint and muscle pain, and have skin problems.

These are just some of the symptoms gluten can cause, but should everyone stop eating it? What are the risks and benefits of a gluten-free diet? What should you avoid and what should you eat if you are intolerant to gluten? Which food substitutes are available, where can you get them, and which brands offer the best gluten-free products? Plus, which restaurants have gluten-free options and are there any discounts for them?

To get answers to all of these questions and more, take a look at the following infographic.
