I only resort to saying "I'm allergic to wheat" when ordering in a restaurant.
1) It takes too much time to explain, and
2) Most people get that "allergic" is not a good thing, and
3) They don't care about my personal problems, only what affects them - and they don't want me getting sick in their restaurant!
Anyone else who asks, I give them the whole spiel, because I look at it as another opportunity to educate! And you never know - they might know someone who has the same problem and later they can say, "Hey! I know someone who knows all about that!"
