What are the signs and symptoms of wheat alleriges?
The signs and symptoms of an ordinary wheat allergy are not too different from other food allergies. Signs and symptoms include angioedema (swelling in the face or throat), urticaria, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, eczema, nausea, and vomiting, and can also include light headedness, dizziness, mood changes, palpitations, tiredness, coughing, and anaphylaxis. Urticaria takes place more commonly with wheat than with other food allergens. Reactions take place soon after eating wheat, and can become more severe on repeated exposure.
Wheat dependent exercise induced anaphylaxis is caused by omega-5 gliadin, a type of prolamin which is also part of the structure of gluten. These omega-5 gliadins can get into the bloodstream and cause asthma-like symptoms, urticaria, or anaphylaxis. Wheat dependent exercise induced anaphylaxis can also be brought about by aspirin and certain other drugs.
Baker's allergy is caused by omega-gliadins and thioredoxin hB (thioredoxin is a type of antioxidant found in cereal grasses). It can cause asthma or hay fever like symptoms as well as contact dermatitis. Another ingredient of flour, aspergillus amylase, can also cause allergies.
