Airborne Winter Wheat
0

8 posts in this topic

Call me crazy, but i fear that i possibly got glutened from airborne particles of Winter Wheat. It is being planted in my area and my home is smack dab in the middle of all of the farmland. I cannot trace the sickness i am feeling back to anything that i ate in the last few days...

Sure makes me wonder!

Its a possibility. If airborn flour can get ya, why not the dust from planting?

NO ..... call me crazy ( I wanna dance).

Start a food diary and the airborn that you speak of ,should not be a worry. You might want to revisit your diet.

I must admit I have always thought it possible. If you think about it, anything entering the nose can end up in the stomach as the nasal passages 'drain' down the back of the throat and enter the stomach.

It can happen. It happened to me. I drove thru a hugh dust cloud when a farmer was harvesting barley. I could taste it in my mouth. My reaction was about 5 hours later, quite severe stomach cramping, about 20 - 30 minutes of the severe stuff.

Why would they plant wheat end of november? Around here we still have soy beans in the fields. If they plant wheat during the winter i need to be aware of it, i also think if you get wheat dust on moist lips or in your mouth when breathing it will make you sick. I got it from wild bird seed dust for a while till i read the lable.

A quick google search showed, depends on where you live but not uncommon at all for wheat to be planted in oct-nov. I never knew this, guess i better pay attention what the farmer is doing in that field out back !

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
