It’s frustrating to pinpoint a wheat, gluten or grain related ailment. The distinctions between an allergy, sensitivity or celiac disease can be dubious.
Wheat allergy symptoms differ from gluten allergy or celiac disease symptoms in that wheat can affect the respiratory system or the skin. These include nasal congestion, difficulty breathing or irritation of the throat, mouth, eyes or skin. Other symptoms like diarrhea or bloating are gastrointestinal symptoms that could be mistaken for a gluten allergy or celiac disease.
To help with a diagnosis, blood testing is available. The Wheat Allergy Test looks for IgE antibodies which the body develops in response to proteins found in wheat. This test is suitable for adults and children with results typically available in 3-6 business days. Ordering is easy with our network of national labs. Simply order your test, go to your local lab and see your results online.
