Symptoms of Wheat Allergies


Visitors: 1,639

An allergy to wheat can be extremely frustrating. Since there are so many foods that contain wheat, it seems like your life could never be the same. Don't worry; this is far from the case. The first step is understanding the wheat allergy symptoms.

Allergy to wheat symptoms include chest pains, dizziness and nausea, vomiting, bloating and skin rashes. It's also common to experience changes in mood, swelling of the tongue, eye irritation, coughing and a stuffy nose. One lesser known symptom of a wheat allergy is frequent urination. It's usually triggered when you eat foods that are high in gluten.

If any of these symptoms occur you need to determine exactly what foods are triggering the allergic reaction. A daily food journal will help you keep tract of exactly what you're eating. After you figure out what's causing the unpleasant symptoms, you only need to stop consuming that type of food. It's also a good idea to consult a doctor. He'll be able to perform allergy testing that will pin point the foods you're allergic to.

Treatment is usually fairly simple; you just stop eating the foods you're allergic to. There is medication available to help with the symptoms; however it's usually just better to avoid the foods. The good news is that now there are many alternative food options available that do not contain wheat. You can choose from wheat free bread, pasta, or cake if you like. Many times they're so good you won't even be able to tell the difference.

As stated above a wheat allergy can cause frequent urination. For more information please visit our Allergies and Frequent Urination page. We're a website that's dedicated to helping allergy sufferers find Easy Allergy Relief .
