At Home Gluten Allergy Test

At Home Gluten sensitivity

What is At Home Gluten Sensitivity? Gluten allergy happens when an individual’s body can’t tolerate gluten, which is a protein commonly found in wheat, rye and barley. Other symptoms can include numbness in the arms, legs, hand, or fingers, headaches, brain fog and other gastrointestinal symptoms. Symptoms usually only appear hours or even days after gluten consumption.

At Home Gluten Allergy Test

Why would you need an at home gluten sensitivity test? You might suspect that you have a wheat allergy if you’re eating a lot of foods that contain wheat. If you suspect you do, an elimination diet is recommended for about 2 weeks. During this time, you cut out wheat and see if your symptoms improve. The elimination diet is just one part of a general approach to removing gluten from the diet, but it will help you rule out other possible allergies. The blood test will confirm if your blood contains antibodies.
