I'm Patty and new to the board. Has anyone noticed when they eliminated gluten
that their asthma and coughing disappeared rather quickly? For years I developed
those symptoms, with severe reflux, and when I gave up wheat, barley, and other gluten foods the asthma and cough are nearly gone. Has anyone else noticed this? I've also no longer have excessive gas - thank goodness!

My daughter is only 27 months, and from the time around 9 months, she had severe asthmatic problems. She was sick nonstop with ear infection after infection, and the asthma came with each one. The doctors had us giving her breathing treatments 24/7. She was on Pulmicort twice a day, and Xeophenex every 4 hours. Talk about hectic! When she went into the hospital this past january, she even had to have deep suction the entire first week. Then, during the third week of her stay, she was diagnosed with Celiac, and began the gluten-free diet. She hasn't had to have a breathing treatment or another ear infection since then. Not even a simple cold!!! I don't even think she had asthma at all, I just think her immune system was so frail and weak from not being gluten-free. Best of luck to you!!
