(1) Gluten blocks like the wall of intestine (like "glu"e) and blocks the absorbing the nutrition, and sometimes immune system thinks to attack as allergan. Some people have celiac desease,r gluten allergy or gluten sensitive to have serious symptom like like pain, anemia, bloating, stool inconsistency, tiredness, etc. In that case, you need to avoid any gluten products.
(2) Hi-spike of sugar in blood, wheat itself and majority of wheat products are combined with sugar, dairy and more, and it is high glycemic index to cause obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
(3) Wheat contains a substance called phytic acid, which can reduce absorption - “steal” nutrients from other foods. Inflammation in the gut causes to be leaky gut.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition triggered by the intake of gluten in genetically predisposed individuals. It is estimated to affect 1 in 133 people in US, but the vast majority remain undiagnosed. When someone with celiac disease consumes gluten, then immune system attacks the small intestine, which affect the absorption of nutrients. There are over 300 symptoms associated with the disease ranging from weight loss and constipation to depression and anemia. Currently, the only known treatment for celiac disease is strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life to heal the existing intestinal damage, prevent further damage and return the intestinal barrier (villi) to a healthy state. Celiac disease is diagnosed by an antibody (blood) test. If tests are positive and symptoms suggest celiac disease, then physician confirms he diagnosis via an endoscopic biopsy of small intestine.

A food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the U.S. including 1 in 13 children. A food allergy occurs when the body's immune system produces on antibody in response to the protein contained in a specific food. When people with food allergies are exposed to trigger foods, symptoms can rage from discomfort (itching, eczema, stomach upset, headache, congestion) to life-threatening (swelling of the mouth, throat or tongue, hives, difficulty breathing). Symptoms may appear immediately or be delayed by minutes or hours. In the US, there are eight allergens that account for 90% of all food allergic reactions - wheat, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish. A food allergy is typically diagnosed by allergy specialist using food elimination diets, skin and/or blood test to identify the specific trigger foods that cause a reaction. Many children outgrow their food-related allergies. However, a food allergy can also develop over time, even into adulthood.
