GLUTEN ALLERGY

Gluten allergy, wheat allergy and yeast allergy are three distinct allergies. They are often treated the same however, by eliminating wheat products from the diet. Anemia, infertility or osteoporosis are some of the symptoms of gluten intolerance in adults. Gluten allergy symptoms and wheat allergy symptoms are gastrointestinal problems like gas, diarrhea and bloating. Other symptoms can be headaches, joint pain or fatigue.

In order to diagnose a gluten, wheat or yeast allergy the best way is to do an elimination diet. In this diet gluten and gluten-associated foods are eliminated for a period of time then gradually reintroduced. A diary must be kept to track symptoms before and after the elimination diet.

There is no allergy cure but there is an increasing variety of gluten free products today. Wheat free pasta is widely available. It is made from grains like rice, corn, quinoa, potato and beans. Wheat free baking mixes for breads, cakes, pizza crusts and similar items are currently available at you local health food store or on the internet if your regular supermarket does not carry them. If you like a particular product you can always request your supermarket to carry it, they are usually glad to do so. There are also ready to eat and frozen wheat free foods and snacks available.

There are also some natural allergy cures which can relieve allergic symptoms with little or no side effects. The herbs which are commonly used are Astragalus, Black Cohosh, Dong Quai, Eyebright, Echinacea, Ginkgo, Goldenseal, Grape Seed Extract, Horseradish, Licorice, Nettle, Pau Darco, Rosemary and Yarrow. Always consult a health care professional before beginning an allergy regimen.
