Severe allergy to Barley

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I've got a severe allergy to Barley and cannot eat anything that contains it

i live in Spain and find it very difficult to check all the ingredients 

breakfast cereals are the most difficult as everyone I found always contains barley 

if I consume anything with barley even a minute amount from a few minutes to hours later I get an uncontrollable cough and severe breathing problems 

I was misdiagnosed with asthma due to the symptoms but after much research I now know barley is the culprit

i would like to know if anyone has the same illness or symptoms thank you

Welcome!

Have you been tested for celiac disease?  Celiac disease is an autoimmune response trigger by gluten found in wheat, barley and rye.

Hi 

i haven't been tested for celiac but I know I have something

i also have lactose free as milk was not good for me 

and I cannot tolerate caffeine as it makes me cough also

so yes I think I will have a proper test for celiac 

hopefully I get an answer
