Understanding Allergen,Individual - Food Wheat Gehon (Triticum Aestivum)

What is Allergen,Individual - Food Wheat Gehon (Triticum Aestivum)?

Allergen, Individual - Food Wheat Gehon (Triticum Aestivum) is a blood test used to test an allergy to wheat. Wheat allergy is an allergic reaction to eating foods containing wheat where people experience an irregular immune system response to at least one of the proteins in wheat. People may experience recurrent loose motions or constipation, anemia, or other problems related to the stomach. To test it, a patient may have to get a blood test. Additionally, an upper GI endoscopy and an intestinal biopsy may also be needed. If the allergy is confirmed, then the doctor recommends that you start a gluten-free diet, which basically eliminates the components that induce this allergy. Usually, medicines are not required, and changes in lifestyle along with diet modifications are advised.
