Could Your Child Have a Wheat Allergy? Heres What to Look Out For.
As a parent, the thought of your child having a potential allergy has probably crossed your mind more than once. Often, we aren’t aware of anything our child is allergic to unless they have a dangerous reaction unexpectedly. One of the most common allergies that children and adults are facing in 2022 is a wheat allergy. This irregular immune response to wheat products can cause massive reactions, so look out for warning signs that there may be a wheat allergy present in your child. In this video, we will look at some general information regarding wheat allergies and what you should look out for.
Before you take your child to the wheat allergy doctor to get them tested in-person, take note of their response to any bread or tortilla products. Normally reactions are quite obvious, but an internal reaction can be hidden in some scenarios. If your child has a wheat allergy, do your research into what has wheat in it. Some unexpected wheat products include ice cream, soy sauce, and hot dogs. Thankfully, 2022 has seen a great rise in products made without wheat, so you and your child have plenty of choices when it comes to wheat-free foods.
