About Our Wheat (Food) Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Wheat or food made with Wheat Flour.
Wheat allergies are common in the United States. In food allergies cases, the body sees proteins or chemicals in the food as a toxin. The immune system reacts by releasing histamines and antibodies to fight the toxin, causing allergy symptoms. Most allergic reactions to wheat affect the mouth, skin, or gastrointestinal tract and can cause swelling, irritation or itching to occur as well as more dire symptoms like difficulty breathing or vomiting. Symptoms often appear immediately upon ingestion, but can sometimes take anywhere from minute to days to manifest. Food allergies can be very severe and sometimes even fatal. Our quick blood test looks for IgE antibodies that respond as a result to being exposed to wheat allergens.
An allergy to wheat is not the same as Celiac Disease or a gluten allergy.
Many common foods are made with wheat, including breads, pastas, cracker, cookies, cakes, pastries, cereals and some types of flour.
