I can't make any promises, but my partner's (mild) asthma went away once we were gluten free. So there is hope.

You need to get your ferritin checked. When mine was in the toilet I would have a lot of shortness of breath and tachycardia. It would be a good idea to get a whole vitamin/mineral pannel done as well.

Thanks,

I will do that.

There is a panel of tests that need to be done when a celiac is diagnosed or suspected of being gluten sensitive. I've seen the list online - some of the tests are Vit D, B12, folic acid, thyroid tests and more. I would have really benefited from these tests but the Dr refused to order them and waited until I developed worse problems. I did get her to order the ferritin level.

The autoimmune reaction to gluten is so delayed in many people that it is not obvious that gluten is casing a problem. I usually react in about 6 hours, some people take longer and the symptoms may not be typical. Some people tho react sooner and they probably also have an allergy to gluten and related grains.

yep, i have a delayed reaction sometimes when i am glutened, other times i can tell right away. i think it depends on what and how much? so even though i get sick, sometimes i am going crazy trying to figure out what got me. especially when i am away from home and not eating 'normally' - it took awhile to figure out that: oh, wow, i must have gotten glutened somewhere.... because sometimes it doesn't happen right away. sometimes the next day, even, when i KNOW i have been eating safely :(
