Did Anyone Ever Develope A Chronic Cough While On Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was thinking back over any symptoms that I may have experienced as a result of gluten in my lifetime. It just occurred to me that as a adolescent I developed a chronic cough for one entire year. It was a result of eating poorly (McDonald's)and I would cough horribly all day long except when I slept. When I saw my mom again several months later, she put me back on a healthy diet (and it was also mostly gluten free) and the cough went away within a week. It never returned.

I was thinking this could have been edema in the lungs (tiny amount of fluid collecting in the lungs). It was a pretty bad cough.

Has anyone ever experienced this?

I had chronic bronchitis from childhood and developed asthma a few years before I was diagnosed. Both were attributed to first my Mom's smoking and then my own. Within a relatively short time gluten-free both were gone. I think they both may have been due to chronic inflammation, which I had big time and all over prediagnosis.

I have coughed for years. The pulmonary doc said I have "cough asthma" The cough is way better after just a short time gluten free.

I had a cough up until recently and now I'm on some strong iron pills, and the cough has vanished!

i had pneumonia 4 times (2 in one year) with bouts of bronchitis every few months. from the last ct scan they said i have calcifications on my lungs which is likely due to the chronic bronchitis/pnuemonia. if i caught a cold which was pretty often, it always seemed to jump into my lungs. hopefully that won't be happening anymore. i absolutely think the inflammation from gluten and lung issues go hand in hand.

I've had a chronic cough for more than half my life. The first time I went gluten-free (about 2 years ago) my cough got so bad I was wetting myself. I guess it was just a withdrawal thing because after 2 weeks of that it stopped and for the first time in years I wasn't coughing on a daily basis. I just started my diet back up so hopefully I'll see it go away completely.

Yes I have and its the worst. I have changed my diet to everything gluten free but I am still having a strong cough. I drink plenty of water, hot tea, and even prescribed cough syrup but I am still coughing. I don't know what to do. Are there any suggestions?

I also have issues with dairy.  It is not digestive.  I get wheezy, cough and feel congested.  I also get joint pain.  I do not have an allergy though.  So maybe try eliminating that if you still have the cough.

Brandon,

get your doctor to prescribe albuterol inhaler, a couple sprays of that a day should do the trick, if not,dr. may need to prescribe the albuterol followed up with symbicort inhaler.i do these two when I have the cough, and finally have it under control(when I say I had a cough, I mean I had a cough! uncontrollable once it started.it would go away for a couple hours, then come back on.)
