Is It Possible To Get A Reaction By Breathing Wheat?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Pretty much what the title describes. I moved next to a wheat field last year. I suffer from Dermatitis herpetiformis, and while I haven't seen bumps in a while I still wonder if I can get a reaction from this. I have recently (since the move) been diagnosed with Chronic Prostatitis as well (at age 20) which anecdotal evidence suggests can be intensified by a gluten sensitivity reaction. So really I'm wondering if this could be the answer to my problems. The prostatitis is far more annoying than the Celiac/DH ever proved to be.

Thoughts?

Is it possible to stay somewhere else (with family, say) for two weeks or so and see if you feel any better? I can't say definitively, but it makes sense that living next to a wheat field could lead to accidental ingestion. All I'm finding in Googleland is that oats can be cross-contaminated due to growing in the same field as or in an adjacent field to wheat, which would tend to make one think a person could be contaminated, too. Have you asked your doctor(s)?

I rarely visit the doctor as he tends to be clueless on my condition and I never really get a chance to talk to him. It took a few different specialists before I was properly diagnosed.

Once I get my paycheck I'm going to ask him to run a few tests (if possible). I haven't officially had a biopsy done of the (small?) intestine to check for Celiac, but I got my DH biopsied. They think it's likely that I have it but it would be nice to make sure. I'm following a strict gluten-free diet, so if the biopsy/endoscopy shows celiac-like features, it might mean the wheat field is affecting me.

No relative's house to stay at though.
