This answer was rated:

Hi, have had an intolerance test done, and it says im intolerant to barley..What things do i need to avoid, online answers are vague, and one site says go gluten free, but im not intolerant to wheat, im ever so confused?!

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

It is not specifically a celiac disease

There is a protein called gluten found in wheat,barley and rye

A intolerance to barley does not necessarily means an intolerance to wheat or celiac disease

This is just a kind of food allergy and you have to avoid it but it is not celiac disease

Do you have any other question?

I am available to assist you any further till you are satisfied
