Food allergies: If you are perplexed about your dietary restrictions, a nutritionist may be able to help you. You listed only five items you are allergic to. There are so many other food options available!

Beware that allergy: is simply a label for behavioral response. Pretense is that someone else (Doc, etc.) really understands what is happening when actually just repeating the clients complaints//descriptions of behavior(s), using different words/diagnostic-labels, while promoting theories to justify low-level theories aimed at justifying what is being promoted/sold. Best don't miss bigger issues & internal controls.

Im allergic to eggs, milk, soybeans, wheat and rye, do i have a gluten problem? i do have joint pains, do i need to stay away from wheat or rye?

Not necessarily: If you think you might have celiac sprue, you should have the blood tests drawn to check for it; if those are negative, you likely do not have celiac; one can still have intolerance to gluten or other compounds in wheat, etc. (look up FODMAP); the latter would not cause problems outside of your GI system;

Gluten: Gluten is in wheat, barley, and rye. Therefore, it is in any foods or drinks that use these as ingredients. Some foods are pretty obvious like typical breads, pizza, pasta, cakes, and cookies. You need to be aware that gluten is in most beers, soy sauce, and many sauces. Anything breaded typically has gluten.

What is the differance with gluten and wheat intollerance?

What is the differance with gluten and wheat intollerance?

Same but different..: If you are intolerant or allergic to wheat and not gluten sensitive, then you only have to avoid eating foods made of or containing wheat. Even though all wheat products have gluten, if you are gluten sensitive, you also have to avoid barley, rye and spelt. So if a product is gluten free then it is also wheat free. But the reverse is not true. Wheat free product may contain gluten.

Wheat intolerence and gluten intolerence, is there a difference?

Wheat intolerence and gluten intolerence, is there a difference?

Wheat and Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. You could possibly have a reaction to wheat, but not other gluten- containing grains. The exact meaning of "Intolerance" is not clear, so I can't be certain what you mean by that.

Do you know is wheat gluten ok in bagels?

Do you know is wheat gluten ok in bagels?

Depends: If you do not have gluten sensitivity or celiac, the gluten in bagels should be fine. Roughly 6 percent of the U.S. Population is gluten sensitive and 1 percent has celiac. Gluten is present in every flour based product you eat including breads, bagels, rolls. Most people have no problems with gluten.

How can some gluten-free foods have wheat listed in the ingredients?

Read labels!: Good for you! it's smart to read labels, particularly if avoidance of certain foods (like gluten in celiac patients) is a must. False advertising in the case of products you indicate is tragic. Contact the manufacturer, the food seller and if unsatisfied with the response take your concern to the next level.

I think i'm allergic to wheat, and not specifically gluten. Is this common?

See Allergist: An IgE-mediated allergic reaction to wheat is very common, especially in children (less common to develop as an adult). Celiac disease (gluten allergy) is a completely unrelated condition and not related to true wheat allergy which leads to hives, itching, swelling, wheeze, etc upon exposure. See an Allergist in order to clarify your reactions and determine if you have a true allergy or not.

Is it possible to benefit from a wheat-free diet that is also not gluten free?

Yes: Yes, there is evidence that industrialized wheat in most processed foods has a higher percentage of gluten than heirloom varieties from a century ago. This may be one reason we are seeing increase in wheat and gluten sensitivity. It is possible to have an allergy or intolerance to wheat but it is far more common to be intolerant to the hard to digest gluten component, also in rye & barley.

What happens if you're allergic to wheat is it still possible you shouldn't eat other gluten?

Probably: It really depends on which protein in wheat you are allergic to. If you are allergic to gluten then you need to avoid all gluten. If you are not allergic to gluten but are allergic to wheat then no. See an allergist to help you sort this out.

Would it be possible that my anxiety issues are triggered from a gluten or wheat intolerance?

It can be, but needs: to be validated or checked first. It's important to see when you're feeling anxious, or have panic attacks (If you do?) Then, do a food log for a week to see if there's a correlation. to what ur eating (GMO gluten wheat, pasta vs. sugars can do it too (candida).Then u can have ur dr. do a CYREX lab panel to look at this specifically.It'ill not work as well, if you've eliminated it.Start there 1st!
