About Our Barley Allergy Test

This IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to barley.

This hardy cereal grain that dates back to the Stone Age. Barley is the fourth most important grain in the world, after Wheat, Maize and Rice. Most of the barley now grown in the Western world is used either for animal fodder or, when malted, in the brewing and distilling industries.

If you think you’re allergic to barley, you may have celiac disease. Celiac disease is when your body experiences a negative reaction to gluten; this reaction is usually intestinal. Gluten is a protein that’s found in grains like barley, wheat, and rye. It’s considered a serious autoimmune disorder and those with celiac disease must avoid all forms of gluten in their diet for the rest of their lives. Celiac disease symptoms may include some or all of the following:

  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach pain
  • Fatigue
  • Gas

If your symptoms are intestinally related but not this severe, you may have a gluten sensitivity or intolerance. This may mean that you can handle eating gluten but it may not always be comfortable.

If your reaction to barley is not intestinal but related to your respiratory system, you may be allergic to just barley or a different protein than gluten. Symptoms would include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Hives
  • Lower lung capacity

In extreme cases, anaphylaxis may occur, which is considered a medical emergency. If you experience trouble breathing or remaining conscious, seek medical attention immediately.
