The “BMS Gastroenterology” published the findings of a study which suggest that there is a direct link between gluten intolerance and a condition called “aphthous stomatitis”, which leads to mouth ulcers and canker sores. Malabsorption in gluten- intolerant people reduces their calcium levels, and this mineral is essential for healthy bones and teeth.
- Skin problems
Gluten intolerance often causes eczema, acne, and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), which is a difficult condition. This is due to the fact that malabsorption caused by gluten intolerance affects the skin and causes itching, redness, rashes, burning, and blisters.
The Gluten Intolerance Group defines DH as “a chronic disease of the skin marked by groups of watery, itchy blisters that may resemble pimples or blisters.”
