Gluten Allergy Symptoms

Do you have gluten allergy symptoms?

So much bloating and gas, some many medical terms, and so much confusion! Often the terms celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and a gluten allergy get carelessly thrown around as if they all refer to the same condition.

These terms are not synonymous. Celiac disease can be referred to as a gluten intolerance, however “intolerance” doesn’t seem to capture the severity of the condition.

Celiac disease is not an allergy - it is an autoimmune disease.

If you experience a histamine response very shortly after eating or coming into contact with wheat or gluten containing foods, you may be allergic to gluten or wheat. The symptoms of a gluten allergy are much like other allergies, including:

  • Itchy skin or mouth
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Respiratory problems
  • Hives
  • Diarrhea
