I heard that gluten allergies can cause sinus problems. For me, it is sinus swelling, and not mucus. I get my worst congestion at night, usually having one nostril completely clogged. I have just been off gluten for a few days now, and I would like to know how long i should expect for congestion to go away. How many days, in your experience, did it take for nasal congestion to go away? 

ty!

Hi Norman!

 

Everyone is different and symptoms improve at all different rates.  My son had severe nasal congestion -- it has improved, but isn't completely gone - gerd and sinus issues are his only remaining symptoms - although much improved.

 

I hope this improves for you quickly -- also sometimes we blame gluten for some issues that can be attributed to something else -- if your sinus issue doesn't improve - I'd look at other possible irritants.

 

Hang in there :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
