Celiac Disease Linked To Asthma And Possibly Ischemic Heart Disease
0

5 posts in this topic

I had my adult onset asthma hit like a brick in 2012. Multiple rounds of prednisone, 1 hospitalization, and urgent care visits for oxygen and nebulizer treatments. They couldn't figure out why it hit so acutely and was so difficult to control. Hmmm I think I know why! It's been a huge thorn in my side. But 6 months gluten free and it's controlled!

I'm now undergoing cardiac testing and have a stress test on Feb 11th because my cardiologist suspects ischemia. This article is pretty eye opening.

Good to hear about your asthma improving by going gluten-free! 

 

Here's my two cents about your upcoming stress test.  Will be it be nuclear or on a treadmill?  The nuclear test is tough.  I got pretty sick and afterwards they didn't even have any gluten-free for me in the department of the hospital.  I had to do the nuclear since I had just fractured my back.  My results:  continue to eat a stick of butter a day!  Just kidding.  All clear.  I'm good for another 50 years.  So, bring gluten-free food with you if the test is nuclear.

 

I went in to the hospital because I passed out after ingesting gluten-free fried chicken (gluttony will get you every time!), vomiting and passing out after I laid myself carefully on the floor (three months after celiac dx).  Woke up with a major nose bleed (pool of blood) and a compression fracture (thanks to celiac disease).  Could not get up.  Called the paramedics.  ER got a couple of weird readings on the EKG which I seemed to recall a conversation, "We've been having problems with that equipment" and they admitted me.  They thought I was having a heart attack.  My pain was from my fracture which was not discussed until my follow-up with my PCP a week later.  I did refuse the stress test once after being wheeled down to the nuclear department, but the cardio scared the crap out of my husband and daughter.  So, I was forced to comply!  Probably helped pay that month's installment for the nuclear equipment!  

 

Hope your outcome is just as good!

I had to do a cardiac workup last year and I collapsed on the treadmill, had to go Nuclear.  What a rush that is.  Its over quickly though so either way you'll be fine.

I'm not looking forward to it. Yesterday I was just folding laundry and my heart rate jumped to 137 and I was short of breath and dizzy. Can't image how I'm going to feel on that treadmill!

I'm going to do my best not to have nuclear though
