Dear Kim
It is important to obtain a clear diagnosis of wheat allergy before you start cutting out such a staple food. Because your mother is allergic to wheat it is possible that you may have a similar sensitivity. Please consult your dr who will arrange for allergy tests. Once we have a diagnosis we can see how you can compensate if you need to cut out wheat.
