Wheat Allergy Symptoms
I had eczema and was nauseous for years. After Dr. Mitchell tested me, he found I have a wheat allergy. I stopped eating it, and my symptoms are gone! I feel great.

Wheat Allergy Symptoms

A true wheat allergy is an immune system reaction to one or more of the proteins found in wheat including albumin, globulin, gliadin and gluten.  This is actually much less common than gluten sensitivity.

Common symptoms of wheat allergy

  • eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis)
  • hives
  • rashes
  • wheezing and asthma
  • runny nose (allergic rhinitis)

Rarer symptoms

  • abdominal symptoms like nausea, cramping, bloating,  pain, vomiting or diarrhea
  • dizziness
  • headache
  • palpitations or chest pains
  • joint and muscle aches
  • depression or mood swings
  • anaphylactic shock

You can test for a wheat allergy with a ImmunoCap blood test, which will detect levels of specific IgE to wheat. If you are allergic, you would probably have to stick with gluten-free foods.
