how to determine a wheat allergy
Anon_28841 posted:
Do you have to cut it out completely, or can you start by just reducing your intake? In just starting (to rule out a wheat allergy), I don't know if I should avoid it entirely (at least for a month) and be really vigilant, or just cut back significantly.

If it is a true allergy then even a little bit will affect you. You would have to cut wheat out completely. Your doc can tell you how long it will take to really get it out of your system - I know with milk it can take 2-3 weeks to completely eliminate.
