Allergies

Wheat allergy?

06/09/2008

Question:

I believe I may have an allergy to wheat (gluten) and want to do an elimination diet. How long would it take for me to follow the diet to see any changes in my physical symptoms (hives, joint pain, bowel habits)?

Thanks!

Answer:

You should be able to see a difference in 2 or 3 weeks.
