I have a barley allergy confirmed with a blood test. Was tested for wheat, rye. Is it common for barley allergy to "standalone" or similar substances?
Barley allergy: Yes barley allergy alone is actually very common. I usually see 6-7 people a year with this allergy. Usually it causes itching alone (which can lead to eczema), recurrent urticaria (hives) and/or intestinal cramping with diarrhea. The hard part with avoidance is that many brands of flour are a wheat/ barley mix. So this calls for a lot of label reading and avoidance of things made with flour ...Read more
I had a skin allergy test 4 years ago and tested +2 for oats, wheat, soy, barley, rye an hoops. Based on this could I be a celiac or sensitive?
Wouldn't bet on it: Sensitivity is a simple realization the suspect food and you don't get along. Skin or blood tests can suggest that but your personal experience is the best gauge. Celiac is not a true allergy but a quirk in the immune system where it makes antibodies to gluten as if it was a germ & these attack your gut tissue. There are specific tests for that. CD is a real entity & you should have proper testing ...Read more

The alternative is taking the risk of a food reaction to what may be a minor or unexpected additive. ...Read more

Have several med allergies, & Celiac. I'm neg for food allergies, but still feel I'd be more prone than most to them. Should I avoid allergenic foods?
Keep a food diary: I would not rule in or out any food based on an assumption. Your celiac already makes life challenging. Keep a food diary & do some eliminations, stopping an item for 2 weeks then resume. If your system remains happy/stable after reintroduction it is likely fine to keep it. Consider various food additives, like red dye #40 that is rough on many, causing enough problems it is banned in Europe. ...Read more
