Symptoms: in the short term, you can have symptoms of bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, lactose intolerance, even table sugar intolerance. Continued non observance to the diet over many years could lead to a lymphoma= cancer of the intestines. Please try to take this condition seriously and do the best you can to adhere to a gluten free diet. There are other symptoms as well that include rashes.
