Celiac Disease Linked To Asthma And Possibly Ischemic Heart Disease

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had my adult onset asthma hit like a brick in 2012. Multiple rounds of prednisone, 1 hospitalization, and urgent care visits for oxygen and nebulizer treatments. They couldn't figure out why it hit so acutely and was so difficult to control. Hmmm I think I know why! It's been a huge thorn in my side. But 6 months gluten free and it's controlled!

I'm now undergoing cardiac testing and have a stress test on Feb 11th because my cardiologist suspects ischemia. This article is pretty eye opening.

Good to hear about your asthma improving by going gluten-free! 

 

Here's my two cents about your upcoming stress test.  Will be it be nuclear or on a treadmill?  The nuclear test is tough.  I got pretty sick and afterwards they didn't even have any gluten-free for me in the department of the hospital.  I had to do the nuclear since I had just fractured my back.  My results:  continue to eat a stick of butter a day!  Just kidding.  All clear.  I'm good for another 50 years.  So, bring gluten-free food with you if the test is nuclear.

 

I went in to the hospital because I passed out after ingesting gluten-free fried chicken (gluttony will get you every time!), vomiting and passing out after I laid myself carefully on the floor (three months after celiac dx).  Woke up with a major nose bleed (pool of blood) and a compression fracture (thanks to celiac disease).  Could not get up.  Called the paramedics.  ER got a couple of weird readings on the EKG which I seemed to recall a conversation, "We've been having problems with that equipment" and they admitted me.  They thought I was having a heart attack.  My pain was from my fracture which was not discussed until my follow-up with my PCP a week later.  I did refuse the stress test once after being wheeled down to the nuclear department, but the cardio scared the crap out of my husband and daughter.  So, I was forced to comply!  Probably helped pay that month's installment for the nuclear equipment!  

 

Hope your outcome is just as good!

I had to do a cardiac workup last year and I collapsed on the treadmill, had to go Nuclear.  What a rush that is.  Its over quickly though so either way you'll be fine.

I'm not looking forward to it. Yesterday I was just folding laundry and my heart rate jumped to 137 and I was short of breath and dizzy. Can't image how I'm going to feel on that treadmill!

I'm going to do my best not to have nuclear though

    • As most veteran celiac's have likely lost the taste/ desire for wheat over the many years they have been gluten-free not sure if the target celiac audience will be big buyers.  To add to Ennis' point why this angle Vs. helping the actual autoimmune celiac patient, the thought crossed my mind too. Sorry to be the pessimist I thought of industry, commodities, finances, politics as grains are profitable and modifying them maybe more attractive ..... Modify to market 🤔 lastly, it is naive to underestimate the immune systems intelligence just because a test fails to measure,  or its 80percent less , does not mean the immune system will not "catch on" to the new altered product
    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
