10. Hormonal Imbalance

Women who suffer from hormonal imbalances can have several symptoms such as mood changes, weight changes, low libido, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, irritability, and fatigue.

Hormonal changes are common during times like menopause and pregnancy, but if for no other reason, they may be caused by celiac disease.

Hormonal changes may be a result of gluten intolerance. Even if you are not intolerant to gluten, but have hormonal problems, it may be beneficial to cut out gluten.

Sensitivity to gluten puts stress on the adrenal glands, which sit above the kidneys, acting as stress buffers for the body.

These glands create hormones that are used by the body to repair itself and deal with daily stressors. The adrenal glands also produce sex hormones in women as they age and begin menopause.

When the adrenal glands become exhausted, the body has a breakdown of its systems. The systems in the body are not able to function at an optimal level and they stop being able to repair themselves.

When body function begins to slow down, one may experience the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. During times of chronic stress, the adrenal glands produce stress hormones instead of sex hormones, such as progesterone.

This often leads to a dominance of estrogen, which can result in heavy bleeding, fibroids, irregular menses, endometriosis, depression, breast tenderness, and infertility.

If someone who is sensitive to gluten continues to eat foods containing gluten, the adrenal glands are put under chronic stress from constant inflammation of the intestines, leading to chronic adrenal exhaustion

I think this forum has a time limit on the edit function. I have run into that problem of not being able to go back and edit a post as well but it only happens after it's been up for awhile.

I found this study on vitamin D deficiency and breast pain....

Many newly diagnosed Celiacs have vitamin and mineral deficiencies, including vitamin D deficiency.  

Vitamin D acts as a hormone...and helps regulate the adrenal glands.
