Thanks for your query.

High levels of gluten in the body makes you vulnerable to gluten sensitivity.

Do you have any problems related to your bowel right now?
If not then you might start developing these like abdominal cramps and diarrhea if your gluten levels remain high.

Gluten is present in wheat, barley and oats. You need to change your diet to gluten free oats in case you develop the allergy.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.

Good to hear from you again.

Intolerance to gluten once developed remains for life long and you have to avoid all the food stuffs containing gluten to avoid the stomach issues. Some of your bowel issues may or may not be because of this.

Itching is most likely the result of a yeast infection which can be relieved by using topical cream and Oral Anti fungal medications.

Hope this answers your query.
