Many people develop wheat or grain allergies in childhood and outgrow them later in life. However, some allergies may persist for the rest of a person's life or develop later in adulthood. People with wheat allergies are more likely to be allergic to other grains as well. Wheat and grain allergies are easy to confuse with other conditions such as Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity. Symptoms of these conditions are similar so blood testing is a useful tool that can help a person and their doctor to make a diagnosis. Grain allergy symptoms can include hives or skin rash, nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, runny nose, sneezing, headaches, and in severe cases, anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening.
The Grain Allergy Test can be ordered by anyone who suspects they may be allergic to one or more types of grains. For more testing options, please see our Allergy Testing Category.
Turnaround for this test is typically 3-5 business days.
