Agree and don't stop the wheat until you are tested like one of the ladies said.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

The allergist can determine if in fact you are allergic to gluten/wheat - that's how I found out that I am, among other things! So sorry you are experiencing those symptoms. I've had "environmental" allergies for years but never knew that I was allergic to food until I was tested.
Don't stop believin'

You can get a blood test from the family doctor. You can't get a reading if you have stopped eating the wheat however, so be sure to get tested first. I went to a gastroenterologist after I had the diagnosis of Celiac's and got lots of information from that doctor. Good luck
Thanking God everyday!

For the past six months I have had numerous "allergies". Nasal congestion, post nasal drip, hacking cough, weight gain, bloated, etc. In addition, I began to experience acid reflux immediately after I ate anything. The doctor says it's an allergy; however, the allergy has never been determined. After reading several articles, some of these symptoms are related to gluten sensitivity.
I have an appointment with an allergist in January. Can allergists determine if you have a gluten sensitivity? Can they perform the blood test for celiac or do I need to go to my family doctor?
This is new to me. I am tired of these symptoms and desperately want to find the cause. If anyone has experienced these symptoms and determined it was gluten sensitivity, please let me know. Thanks....Susan
