HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

This allergy can be assessed by having allergy testing done. Allergy testing may be in the form of blood tests or skin testing.
In addition there are also tests that can check for conditions such as celiac disease.

Your doctor would be able to tell you where these tests can be done.

I hope this helps
