In my this post I’m going to talk further more about a kind of protein known as Gluten which we can find specially in wheat, barley rye and the derivatives of these grains. Gluten is always not problematic to everyone but it can effect those people who”s immune system is very sensitive towards it. Such people are the patients of Celiac disease which is an auto immune disease. It’s effects the intestine of a person who has a sensitivity for this protein partical. So to tackle with such problem a person should must follow a gluten free diet which is highly beneficial for celiac patients.

Label reading is a must thing for the people who are suffering from Celiac. but what if we say a person is having trouble with wheat only and its known as wheat allergy. Yes , you heard right.. the wheat allergy is the term which has it’s presense and effects side by side with Gluten allergy. So firstly we should have to know about it and the linear difference between both of them.

What is Wheat Allergy? 

When someone is allergic to wheat, then his body’s immune system overreacts to proteins in the wheat. If the person eats something made with wheat, the body starts to show it’s allergic reactions. Wheat allergy is more common in kids than adults, and many children seem to outgrow their wheat allergy over time. When a person with a wheat allergy has something with wheat in it then his body releases chemicals known as histamine. Such chemical can cause number of symptoms such as :

*  wheezing

*  trouble breathing
*  coughing
*  belly pain
*  vomiting
*  hives
*  itchy, watery or swollen eyes
*  red spots
*  swelling
*  diarrhea
*  a drop in blood pressure, causing loss of consciousness.

Allergic reactions to wheat can be varied. Sometimes the same person can react differently at different times. Some reactions can be mild and other reactions can be more severe and intense.

Difference Between Wheat and Celiac Disease

An allergy to wheat involves an allergic response to a protein in wheat. Gluten is not one of the wheat proteins that typically causes an allergic reactions. Gluten is involved in a condition called celiac disease.

It’s easy to get confused celiac with wheat allergy, but they are different. Celiac disease does not cause an allergic reaction. With celiac, there is a different type of immune system response in the intestines. While people with wheat allergy can usually eat other grains, people with celiac cannot eat any food containing gluten, which is also found in other grains such as barlry, rye, and sometimes oats. Thus we can say that Gluten is a more wider term to be understand. So it’s a must for a celiac person to follow a complete and strict gluten free diet. The person should must check whatever he/she is eating and drinking by reading the food label.

What is the Gluten Free Diet?

Many people believe that the Gluten free diet is simply a quick way to lose weight. this, however, is not true. This specific diet is currently the only treatment for people with celiac disease.
