By Edited Apr 6, 2016 0 2

In this busy world we live in of fast cars, life, cell phones, and fast food, many people are worn out and tired all the time. An increasing number of people are finding out that they have a wheat intolerance. This means that heir bodies simply don't break down or process protein that comes from wheat. So much of our food supply has wheat in it that many people find it hard to completely avoid eating wheat. Why has wheat intolerance become such a major problem now? This article will teach you about the symptoms of wheat allergies, and what changes can be made now to help yourself and family.

The human body's inability to break down and use wheat is not some new phenomenon. People have had wheat allergies for many years. Wheat allergies are becoming one of the top food allergens - joining the ranks of nuts, shellfish and dairy.

Many people have begun to adopt a gluten free meal plan, which excludes certain foods from their every day diet. These food restrictions include and not limited to: oats, barley, wheat and rye. Individuals that experience bowel discomfort after ingesting these food may have condition called Celiac Disease.

Celiac Disease is caused by a gluten allergy. Celiac Disease is not the same as having a wheat allergy. Wheat allergy is a food allergy that means you can be allergic to the different components of wheat, not just the gluten protein. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease of your small bowel. It can cause much pain and discomfort to those that suffer with it. Symptoms of this disease include, bloating, weight loss, diarrhea, skin rashes and a host of other discomforts. Many people have a gluten allergy or have gluten intolerance and may not know it. You must visit an allergist to have the necessary test to find out if you do in fact have the allergies to wheat, gluten or are suffering from Celiac Disease.
