In Reply to: Wheat allergy vs. celiac disease posted by chris on January 23, 2000 at 21:05:07:


: Hi...
: This is a very very very dumb question, but....

: If someone is allergic to wheat, does that person neccessarily have celiac disease? I believe I am allergic to wheat, but I am very tall (no stunted growth), rarely have diarrhea, and have been experiencing weight GAIN rather than loss.

: It's a simple simple question but no one seems to have the answer for me.

: Thanks in advance

hi i was diagnoised with a wheat allergy to but it seems that i was really allergic to latex and latex allergy breaks down the immune system and cause you to become allergic to a great deal of other things noone ever mention celiac diseade to me. you sould be checked for a latex allergy if you are allergic it is important to avoid as much as posssible. good luck
