vegetarian and trying wheat-free
Anon_28841 posted:
I'm struggling with terrible chronic headaches, plus all kinds of inflammation and infection in my sinuses, ears, and jaw. before having surgery a second time, or committing to allergy shots, my doc suggested i try an elimination diet to rule out a wheat allergy. I am vegetarian and could use some help in how to do this--I don't have a lot of time to cook but I do eat breakfast at home every day, pack my lunch, and live in NYC so when I don't cook dinner, there are options for ordering something suitable. Can anyone help me with tips on what to watch out for, recipes, etc? Thanks!

Personally, I would just get tested. And get a test for celiac disease while you are at it. Both are simple blood tests or you can do a skin prick for the allergy. I would go to an allergist and really try to nail it down that way - an elimination diet is not impossible but with wheat it is a real bear to undertake if you don't have to. And if it turns out to be celiac instead of a wheat allergy then that is a whole other diet - and eliminating wheat only will not help if it is celiac.

If you do want to do the diet then try FAAN's website for tips on what to avoid ( - they have a great tip sheet. There are also links on this site to resources like allerdine dot com for help avoiding wheat and other allergens at restaurants.
