Allergy Test Didnt Show Wheat Allergy.

I am still confused about her test results. The Gliadin Ab IGg was very high positive, but she did not register to have a wheat allergy. The milk and egg white were a mild- to moderate positive.

Any thoughts on this?

Gluten intolerance and wheat allergy are two different things. Gluten intolerance implies an IgG response to gluten, whereas a wheat allergy is an IgE response. A test for one cannot identify the other, and the two are independent (you can have one without the other).

Christine,

I have a child with a peanut allergy too. She also tested postive for a milk allergy at her first skin test, but since she lived on cheese and dairy products at the time the allergist said to consider the milk allergy result a false positive.

At her second allergy test a year later, she tested neagtive for the milk allergy, but had a very large (in my opinion) welt for the wheat allergy. The wheat allergy result had me very concerned since I have the Celiacs. The allergist confirmed that Celiacs and a wheat allergy are two entirely different things. And the wheat welt was not large enough to be considered positive. But that peanut allergy is just sticking around for the long haul!

So from my previous experince with the milk allergy issue, follow whatever your doctor said. Some people are anaphylactic for the milk reaction (means they need an Epi-pen). But, if the child is consuming milk no problems now, I wouldn't worry about it. Just watch for changes and rashes in case the allergy develops further.

Good luck!
