Our expert says:
It is always better to have allergy tests done, rather than going by unscientific diagnoses. Your diarrhoea could be caused by many other factors (irritable bowel syndrome, fructose sensitivity, allergy to other foods instead of wheat and milk). Please consult your medical dr so that you can have the appropriate tests done before you cut out vital food groups which you may or may not be allergic to. All breakfast cereals except maize meal and Maltabella contain wheat or gluten. If you are going to cut out milk and dairy products you also need to take a calcium supplement such as Caltrate or Calcium Sandoz, otherwise you will develop a calcium deficiency which could cause osteoporosis in later life.
