When it comes to a gluten intolerance (or any other ailment) what is considered as “sudden onset”?

According to the medical world, the term ‘onset’ means the first time when signs or symptoms of a particular health condition start to show up. When you also use the word ‘sudden’ with ‘onset’ and say ‘sudden onset’ it means that the signs and symptoms of that particular condition have not showed up gradually and over time, as it would normally have done, but has suddenly come up without warning or without any prior indication that this health issue could have been present in the person.

How is sudden onset gluten intolerance difficult than the typical gluten intolerance? Are there any differences beyond the way the disease begins to manifest?

When you suffer from any health conditions from an early stage, you can check the signs and symptoms around an early stage and take the required precautions, help and treatment. It also gives your body more time to adjust to the treatment and medication options as required.

However, if you suddenly become intolerant to gluten and begin to experience sudden gluten intolerance, though you have lived a life eating gluten based food items and your health has been fine till now, it could make you confused and anxious, which could add further problems to your already suffering health.

What are the factors that can lead to sudden gluten intolerance? 

It is possible that you may develop gluten intolerance suddenly, even in your later adulthood and not necessarily during your early childhood, which is a more common timing when gluten intolerance is discovered in most of the cases.

  • The age around which you may experience gluten intolerance can vary from person to person, and while most people develop this health condition early on, those who experience it later in life feel that it is a sudden thing.
  • Also, the amount of time it will take for the gluten in the foods that you eat to show up in your body in the form of some or the other sign can also vary from person to person.
  • In some cases, it is possible that your body takes a longer time to react to the gluten in the foods that you have been eating till now, and hence, once you do notice those signs and symptoms coming up, you feel it is a case of sudden gluten intolerance.
  • Most of the people react immediately to any presence of gluten that is present in the food that they are eating, but there are some people who are known to be asymptomatic. This means that, you may have been eating the same type of foods for all these years but never experienced any symptoms related to gluten intolerance, or any related discomfort when your body first started getting exposed to gluten, even though your intestines may have faced the damage through all these times.
  • However, there will come a stage when your body may suddenly start to show the signs and symptoms of this gluten intolerance, when it will be termed as sudden gluten intolerance.

Could sudden gluten intolerance be due to diet, exercise or the lack of it or genetics?

One of the biggest reasons that could trigger a sudden gluten intolerance especially in your later years is the fact that there is a change in the way your intestinal bacteria works as you grow older. If you are genetically at risk of gluten intolerance or celiac disease, this can trigger an autoimmune response and may cause the signs and symptoms associated with sudden gluten intolerance.

Here are some of the factors that could be responsible for a sudden onset of gluten intolerance.

  • Developing a gluten intolerance issue seems to be more of a combination of genetic issues as well as factors that are related to the environment.
  • According to various doctors and researchers, there are some types of genes found in some people that predispose them to a higher chance of developing the celiac disease.
  • When these people get exposed to any event that could act like a trigger, which is when the first signs of the health issue first begin to show up.
  • There could be various types of triggers that could cause your signs and symptoms to show up in the form of a sudden onset gluten intolerance. It could be sudden high amounts of stress, if you have recently suffered from any viral infection, any form of surgery or even if you are pregnant.

How do you treat sudden gluten intolerance? Can you diagnose and treat it the same way as you treat a typical gluten intolerance? 

Diagnosing and treating sudden gluten intolerance is not always an easy task, and in most of the cases, it is not even diagnosed in the correct or accurate way. In fact, there is no specific treatment available yet that can help to take care of a case of sudden gluten intolerance.

  • At the moment, there are a number of clinical trials and research going on in this area to see if there is any possibility of finding a treatment for sudden gluten intolerance.
  • There is one type of drug that is being looked into that contains two manmade enzymes and that is being expected to help in digesting the gluten from the food even before your body can start reacting to it.
  • There is yet another drug that will help to bind the gluten inside your gut in such a way that your body will be able to remove it from your system when you pass your stool.

However, none of these treatments, when they are available, should be used in such a way that you start eating foods with gluten without taking the proper care and precaution.

Are there any special or different things that you need to take care of apart from the usual when you have sudden onset gluten intolerance?           

The only golden rule is to reduce the amount of foods from your diet with traces of gluten in it. This will prevent any further damage to your intestines and reduce signs and symptoms.
