I was wonder if gluten can block nutrients enough to create electrolyte imbalances, since I had a lot of trouble staying hydrated. I'm noticiing an improvement since going on the diet.
Absolutely. Gluten can inhibit nutrient absorption via the intestines (magnesium, sodium, potassium, and calcium are all electrolytes). Additionally, gluten can induce constipation or diarrhea thus effecting fluid balance in the colon.
