Wheat allergy: It is possible to make allergic antibodies (ige) to wheat and gliadin. This would be called wheat allergy and not celiac disease (cd). Blood testing (rast) can diagnosing this problem. These is no accurate blood test for cd however, persons that show the presence of certain igg and IgA antibodies against deaminated gliadin or tissue transglutaminase are more likely to have cd.
