Relationship between Gluten-free Diets and Arthritis-related joint pain

More and more we are seeing gluten free options at restaurants and hearing friends and family say that they are gluten free. Although going gluten-free is not a good dietary decision for everyone, for those with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity, cutting out gluten from the diet can be extremely beneficial. Not only will gluten-sensitive and intolerant people see a change in their energy levels and how they feel, but many people also notice a change in their joints. For people with gluten-sensitivities, ingesting gluten sets of an inflammatory response in the digestive system which effects the ability of the body to absorb calcium. This leads to osteoporosis and general fatigue. Although experts in the field are not 100% sure why this occurs, joint pain seems to occur in conjunction with these other symptoms.
