what can be done for a wheat allergy?

Wheat Allergy: Is it a true wheat allergy or is it celiac disease aka gluten intolerance? You should see an allergy or gastroenterology specialist for full diagnosis and then a plan of treatment.

Simple: You can control what you eat. That may be inconvenient at times but an allergy is simple. Avoid it or it will trigger a reaction. If you have celiac disease, it is not an allergy, but a quirk reaction in your immune system that created antibodies that can injure your tissues, primarily in the gut. This is harder to live with and requires better control and doctor monitoring.
