  1. I went to a naturopath and did a blood test that tested for IgE and IgG antibodies against a wide spectrum of food.
  2. Thanks. I guess I'm using the terms allergy and intolerance interchangeably, but I mean intolerance.
  3. Wow. I'd never heard of anyone just allergic to barley. I'm glad that you replied, because it's helped me see that there is come differentiating between the two. Part of what's so difficult about this is learning about the different parts of the grains-- as you mentioned, there is more to barley than just the hordein. Anyway, best of luck.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I guess my biggest hang up is whether a wheat gluten sensitivity necessarily means all gluten.
  5. Not a diagnosed celiac, but I was recently diagnosed with a high whole wheat, wheat gluten, and wheat gliadin allergy. However, on the same test I showed no allergies to oats and barley (though I did for rye, spelt, etc.). All the research I've done online shows a chemical similarity between barley and wheat. Should I avoid it even if I don't show an allergy to it?
