About the Author




X-Gluten.com - a collection of the best and most comprehensive information about gluten intolerance diagnosis and the latest resources for testing, diagnosis, research, medical information, gluten-free diets, and more.


Approximately 1/3 (or more) of those with CD have Atypical CD (not the typical gastrointestinal/gut related symptoms).

Atypical symptoms:

  • Dermatitis Herpetiformis (a very itchy, blistery rash on dual sides of the body: both elbows, knees, feet, buttocks or back), eczema, psoriasis and other skin maladies.
  • Delayed puberty, infertility  (males and females), miscarriages, early birth, low birth weight and other pregnancy issues; developmental delays.
  • Dental enamel and discoloration problems, striations and malformed, skewed teeth.
  • Neurological and cerebral issues: depression, migraines, headaches, ataxia (balance), neuropathy, schizophrenia, seizures, brain fog, irritability, behavior issues and more.
  • Osteopenia, osteoporosis, bone pain, connective tissue disorders, chronic fatigue, anemia and other blood diseases.
  • Mouth sores (aphthous stomatitis), reflux, allergies, sinus and respiratory issues, short stature and poor general health.
  • Weight gain, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and on and on ad infinitum.

Believe me, this is the short list! Over 200 symptoms and maladies associated with gluten appear in the appendix of DANGEROUS GRAINS by James Braly M.D. and Ron Hoggan Ed.D.  Many of these ailments magically disappear or get ever so much better on a Gluten-Free Diet. This book is a MUST READ!
