Gluten is a sticky protein that is found in wheat that can cause inflammation in people who are sensitive to it. If you see a doctor for fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, or chronic fatigue, he or she may recommend that you reduce your gluten intake. Watch this video to find out why your holistic doctor in New York, NY, may suggest that you cut your gluten intake.
In people with gluten sensitivities, inflammation can cause a range of symptoms. If you have chronic fatigue, it is often a clear sign that you have a gluten sensitivity. A holistic doctor can determine how nutrition could be triggering your symptoms and offer advice about dietary changes that could battle your chronic fatigue. If you are already under fibromyalgia treatment and are experiencing fatigue but haven’t discussed gluten with your doctor, consider bringing it up at your next appointment.
