Asthma As Effect Of Gluten Exposure

27 May 2004 - 08:05 AM

I represent a family of four celiacs, 5,6,9, and 29 years old, all female.
My 5 year old daughter wheezes and can spiral downwards into pneumonia at the drop of a hat. The doc doesn't believe that she could be having a reaction to gluten like this -- he says she's asthmatic, but can't diagnose her triggers! Her bloodwork for allergens came back fine! I know that she's more likely to wheeze when she's not-so-accidentally been exposed to gluten. We're not 100% gluten-free yet, though we're working on it. Does anyone know a published report linking athmatic reaction to gluten exposure, so I can show this doctor it really is happening?
Yes, she was tested for wheat allergy, too and that came back negative.
Actually, he tried telling me she wasn't Celiac because her bloodwork came back OK. Tell that to her bowels!
Help!
