I came to know I am allergic to gluten after having multiple episodes of allergy signs like a red rash, itching, and swollen eyes every time I ate gluten. I would have had these at least thrice in the last six months. Then I decided to meet the physician who suspected it to be a food allergy, and I guess it is gluten because I have only had wheat buns before these episodes. Anyways allergy test is being scheduled this week. I want to know in prior what happens during the trial. Can you elaborate on what all tests will be undertaken and what will happen at that time?? I am strong and young (22 years) but still apprehensive about it.
