Coughing As Symptom

8 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with Celiac almost 3 months ago by my Naturalist Dr and then got pneumonia right after. I have been to my regular Dr, a Pulmonary Dr, allergist and had CT Scans chest X-rays MRI's and taken everything imaginable for a chronic persistent cough. I went back to my Naturalist Dr and he said because of the antibiotics and steroids and other meds it has altered my immune system and therefore the inflammation in my lungs has not gone away. We are working on that now, but has anyone ever heard of the cough as being a symptom of Celiac ? What did you do ? Please help

YES!!

My son's gerd presented with chronic cough at age 8....took several years for them to determine he was aspirating into his lungs while he slept which caused a chronic cough. We tried treating gerd unsuccessfully for many years...until I was finally diagnosed with Celiac -- he decided to remove gluten after negative blood tests because of several symptoms -- gerd improved, but has not completely resolved. His other symptoms are completely resolved.

Thanks for the reply. I know the Celiac presents all kinds of symptoms. I'm just a little frustrated with the cough.

Understand completely - the son I mention has been coughing consistently in the morning for over 10 years - it is far better gluten-free, but sadly remains unresolved.

He has tried removing other foods and likely will give an elimination diet another shot - he's just not ready right now.

Ps He is currently drinking nettle tea each day to see if it helps with his sinus inflammation - it seems to be helping - he has regained some sense of smell and his cough seems to be slightly improved - no promises, but it might be worth a try.

Thought this might be of interest.

My hubs kindly gave up gluten the same time as me :rolleyes: to help. He has psoriatic arthritis quite badly (23 years) and psoriasis before that.

Guessing timeframe, but I would say has had a chronic cough for about last 8 years - on and off. A soft, irritating cough especially when talking. He takes long term anti-inflammatory pain killers which may have had an effect on his immune system (?) Even thought it might be psychological, like a nervous cough although he is not at all that type.

After going gluten free - cough has vanished :D !! Also snoring gone :D !!

When he sort of did a gluten challenge (back to enormous bowl - almost a bucket :ph34r:) of cereal for breakfast by the second day he could hardly speak or swallow by evening because of what must have been cattargh (sp?) at the back of his throat.

Needless to say he is gluten free now and best of all, much improved arthritis.

Isn't that amazing - my nonceliac hubby is mostly gluten-free as our house is - as his time mostly gluten-free has increased his minor pains and weight issues are vanishing - he seems to be getting younger rather than older :)

Thanks for the information. It does help. I'm looking for anything to share with the Drs. Not that they haven't thought of it already

    • Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free
      i would  tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than  30 years in and out of Japan. the  quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US  becsaue it gets to market  much faster and becasue there is a demand  for quality  above the demand for low price.  As it was pointed out, this  has  nothing to do with gluten.    There  are  alot of things you can  eat  in just about any restaurant  but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls,  are seemingly innocent  but  90% of htem contain wheat starch.  most larger  grocery stores and  department store basements  you can  get  gluten free soy sauce. ---  most  chefs still assume that  soy sauce is soy  so never  take anyones  word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed  salads at  family mart, 7-11 and lawsons  only the gobo salad was  safe. good luck    
    • Gluten free backing food
      We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      How much fat are you consuming?  Going lower carb and not adding in fats can make you hungry.   So, do you know that Type 1 diabetes is strongly linked to celiac disease?    I would ask your doctor for a GAD antibodies test to rule out type 1.   https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/celiac disease-and-diabetes/ http://www.celiac.nih.gov/CDandDiabetes.aspx   I basically eat to my meter and that translates to a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Keeps my doctor happy with my lab results!

      VERY good point cyclinglady, very good point!!!!
    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.
