Just make sure that you are still eating wheat when you have the test done or you will get a false negative.

Dorothy

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.

Just a simple blood test, nothing to it.

I do see an allergist and have been tested. Animal and environmental allergens show up but most of the food ones don't even though I get symptoms (itchy throat, swollen gums, tight breathing) My IGE (allergic levels) last time I got them tested were very high inI've never bbeen tested for Celiac what kind of test is it?

Have you been tested for allergies recently? Also have you had a test done for celiac? As both of those would help rule out things. Also would think about going to a nutritionalist, to go over your diet and reactions. Are you keeping a food diary and also how you are feeling daily as that would help with finding out any problems as well.

How do you know if you have a problem with eating wheat or carbs and if that is what's keeping you from losing weight? What would the symptoms be? For me, I'm a very "allergicy" "puffy" person in general. I have real allergies to dogs, some cats, rabbits, strong smells like perfume, cigarettes, animal bedding and foods like fruits with skins on them (I can eat some once peeled), raw carrots, nuts with skins ( peanuts are kind of okay). I take a daily inhaler (Advair) as maintenance. After I had my first child 25 years ago I became allergic to many things that never bothered me ever. As I get older I seem to acquire new ones, like the carrots are new. I'm sensitive to salt and wine they both make me very puffy. I drink a lot of water all day to try and help with that. How would I know that I'm not tolerating wheat, gluten, grain etc... with all these other issues? or is something I'm eating making me an "allergic" person? My last child of 3 is allergic too so there may actually be more of a genetic factor there or is he allergic too because we eat the same things? Are there any tests that you went for to get answers? The last time I had my blood done nothing with my cholesterol (actually both were very good), or Thyroid was a problem. I have no high blood pressure or diabetes, kind of surprising being so over weight as I am (140 to go) . I did have my Gallbladder taken out last year rather unexpectedly but that's about it. There's so much conflicting info out there that it's hard to find reliable/accurate answers. Most of my doctors have no clue and just blow off my concerns of the connection of food and my allergies. I kind of get the " your not this fat from allergies, stop eating junk and exercise." I'm more of a night stress eater/binger and eat well all during the day. Curious to see what others think. I don't want to be eating a certain "diet" for years to find out it's not productive or how I should be eating. I'm posting this to a few of my teams so sorry in advance if you see it some place else also. For me the more opinions the better :-) Thanks!
