Celiac disease causes extreme inflammation of the digestive tract, which causes bloating and many other different issues in the digestive system. It was found that around 1032 adults who have celiac disease have bloating as a common symptom, and of that, 73% reported feeling bloated before being told by the treating physician about the condition they had. When they removed gluten from their diet, the symptoms resolved almost immediately. Other common culprits that cause bloating besides celiac disease are bowel obstruction, digestive disorders, chronic gas, and constipation.
Bloating can also have many other symptoms involved with it. Constipation & diarrhea usually go hand in hand with bloating, since these are all affected by the digestive system. Sometimes you can even develop bad smelling flatulence, which is once again due to the damaged villi in the digestive tract, specifically the small intestine. Just by eliminating some of the higher foods in gluten, you can dramatically decrease these symptoms.
