The rise in wheat intolerance is something that everybody is looking to combat, and Allergy Test Australia have come up with the perfect solution – using a home allergy test. Find out how we can help you below, trust us, it’s worth it.
Before we start anything, we must ask, do you know what foods wheat is and what types of wheat there are? Do you know that it can make you feel bloated, fatigued, lethargic and moody if you are intolerant to it? Well, if you didn’t, you will now. We are here to answer some of the main questions that we keep getting asked.
How do I know if I have an intolerance to wheat?
This one is easy for us to answer, a home allergy test! Why? Because our extensive tests can identify your intolerances, including wheat and any other items, and this means you can learn how certain foods are having an impact on your body. Once you have identified your intolerance to wheat, then you know what foods you can and cannot eat, leading to a happier and healthier you, as you live a wheat-free life.
What is a wheat intolerance?
The chances are that this Winter you will be exposed to wheat within Australia. Wheat is everywhere, not just prevalent in the Summer and so it is important that you are aware of your surroundings and foods that you are eating. If you are digesting wheat and your body is experiencing symptoms like headaches and bloat, then you are likely to have a wheat intolerance.
What are the symptoms of Wheat Intolerance?
Having identified a sensitivity to wheat using our home allergy test, your symptoms will start to make sense. When suffering from a wheat sensitivity, you will become itchy, tired and have general aches and pains. Add to that the headaches, hay fever and bloat and you will realise why dealing with your wheat sensitivity is so important. There may be other items you are sensitive to as well as wheat, but don’t worry, a home allergy test from us will help you to deal with is.
How can I cope with my Wheat Intolerance?
This is the hard or easy part, depending on how you look at it. We recommend an elimination diet once you have found out whether or not you have an intolerance using our home allergy test. An elimination diet will see you cut out any wheat-based products from your foods and any wheat-related ingredients. This is our recommended solution, and if you do start to feel better, then you are always able to reintroduce wheat back into your diet after six weeks have passed. You may find that your body is now able to tolerate certain amounts of wheat and beforehand you had simply overindulged.
What if my symptoms haven’t subsided?
If your symptoms are still showing despite you eliminating wheat from your diet, then you should consult a health professional and seek advice. It may end up that you have an allergy to wheat or something completely different entirely. Essentially, our main piece of advice is to warn you to be careful about what you are eating and watch the ingredients carefully, it could lead to a happier and healthier you.
