The Gluten Syndrome





The Gluten Syndrome refers to the cluster of these symptoms that you experience if you react to gluten. This is also known as “Gluten-related-Disorder”.




The Gluten Syndrome can affect:

  • your gut,
  • your skin, and
  • your brain.

It applies to any reaction that is caused by gluten. It includes celiac disease, and also the myriad symptoms that can be experienced throughout your gastro-intestinal tract, such as:

  • Bloating and tummy pain;
  • Constipation or diarrhea – irritable bowel;
  • Gastric reflux;
  • Vomiting/ nausea.

The Gluten Syndrome also includes lots of symptoms that do not come from your gut. These include:

  • Brain and behavior disorders, irritability and tiredness, headaches and migraines;
  • Skin problems, eczema, itchy skin, dermatitis;
  • Muscular aches and pains and joint problems.

One in every ten people is affected by gluten. If you have chronic symptoms (feeling sick, tired and grumpy), then you should get checked for The Gluten Syndrome.


Review by: Al Klapperich on May 19, 2011 :

“The Gluten Syndrome” is for you, if:
You are searching for answers to your “unexplained” health issues.
Your celiac disease test results came back negative and you are still sick.
You are “Sick, tired and grumpy”.
Dr. Ford shares a lifetime of knowledge and experience in this manuscript [I like to think of it as a gluten-free manifesto]. He explains how and why gluten can be at the root of ill-health and why it’s often overlooked by many medical professionals. He even explains how interpret your own test results!
The eBook edition of “The Gluten Syndrome” builds upon the second edition [printed version] by offering updated information on testing, a list of gluten-savvy doctors/researchers, recent medical articles from 2009 – 2011 and a host of other tweaks.
