Can one be allergic only to whole wheat?
Live with someone who says she is allergic to whole wheat. She eats white bread, ckes, cookies, etc., just never whole wheat. Is this possible? Note that this individual has some pretty severe behavior/mental issues. Could this be caused by ingesting processed wheat products if she is allergic?

Wheat is an extremely common food allergy. As to eating white bread, cakes, etc, I am surprised that the patient is not experiencing an allergic reactions to those. Wheat is wheat, and if you are allergic to it, you are allergic to ALL wheat products and even some that are related to it.

Yes, the patient's behavior/mental could very well be due to the allergy. You see, when we are allergic to certain foods, our bodies can actually "swell" or retain water in certain areas and the braid is certainly not exempt. Her brain could be experiencing some of this "inflammation" and this could be causing the mental issues. Actually, only a doctor could tell you for sure however by doing certain tests and a food allergy panel to rule out other issues.
