Sometimes, digestion and absorption of gluten becomes difficult in some conditions, for example in celiac disease, which is a digestive disorder. In this case, consumption of gluten causes inflammation of the small intestines and may cause abdominal pain or discomfort. There are some other conditions like gluten intolerance or sensitivity, wheat allergies, autism, behavioral challenges in children, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), in which gluten may not be well tolerated by the body. However, gluten may be considered as one of the triggering factors and restricting its intake may seem promising in most of these conditions. Hence, in such cases, apart from other dietary restrictions, a gluten free diet may be planned.
