A wheat allergy is different than Celiac. did they run the Celiac blood panel? You don't have an allergy to gluten - you have an allergy to wheat or rye or barley.

"What’s the difference between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy?

We use “gluten intolerance” when referring to the entire category of gluten issues: celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy.

Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disorder that affects the digestive process

of the small intestine.

“Non-celiac gluten sensitivity” (what many call “gluten intolerance”) causes the body to mount a stress response (often GI symptoms) different from the immunological response that occurs in those who have celiac disease (which most often causes intestinal tissue damage).

As with most allergies, a wheat allergy causes the immune system to respond to a food protein because it considers it dangerous to the body when it actually isn’t. This immune response is often time-limited and does not cause lasting harm to body tissues."

No, but you must follow a simalar diet:  No wheat and other glutenous grains.  I hope that will improve your health.

mare bear,

 

Welcome to the club! :D

 

I have been tentatively diagnosed with wheat allergy and also have gluten intolerance symptoms too. The gluten-free diet has not only helped my symptoms but cleared up a bunch of other stuff I didn't know was related, like joint pain. Hopefully you find the same relief.

 

You'll find tons of assistance here to help you navigate this ocean, this is a terrific site.
