It has been well established that gluten sensitivity can cause autoimmune heart disease. It has also been confirmed that gluten induced malabsorption of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can lead to different forms of heart disease such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, congestive heart failure (weakened heart muscle), and palpitations.

The following video testimonial demonstrates how gluten exposure led to heart attack symptoms in this woman. She made several trips to the cardiologist and emergency room only to be told that she didn’t have a heart problem. Going gluten free resolved the symptoms completely…

    This could be my story verbatim! But I heard about gluten sensitivity and decided to cut out gluten and my symptoms are lessening. However, I’m told that if you aren’t currently eating gluten, they can’t test you for Celiac, so I guess I’ll never know for sure. But I certainly am not going back just to test! I never want to feel that way again!

    I’ve come across this after having what I think was a mini heart attack late last night after eating some Ben and Jerrys vegan ice cream that contained wheat. I’ve recently cut out gluten and my symptoms such as chest and stomach pain, light headndedness and varying types of bowel movements such as constipation and runny stools have stopped. Then after eating the wheat last night my heart was at 160bpm, it’s usually 60 as I’m 17years old and generally healthy. I could barely breath last night, short of breath and my chest and stomach was extremely painful I also had heartburn and was feeling very very cold then hot then cold and could barely move. I felt like i was having a heart attack and although you might say im young and wouldn’t know what that feels like, I know my body! I’ve realised that eating gluten when you’re intolerant is very dangerous, i do NOT reccomend eating something containing it accidentally and opon realising carry on eating it (especially if cutting it out has relieved your symptoms meaning you’re intollerant). Because you may experience what I did last night and I can tell you I was terrified, up until now I thought it had happened because I had accidently taken both ibrupofen and half a naproxen but the “heart attack” symptoms were happening way before this and these two medications together don’t make you feel as though having a heart attack. If you think you have an intolerance don’t ignore your body trying to tell you! Listen to your body- symptoms after eating foods is your body saying it can’t handle the food, so don’t risk your health to eat something you like the taste of like a peanut butter and cookies ice cream x

    I’m 27 years old now but when I was 18, the chest pain I continusly had was ruining my life. It wasn’t slight it was extreme agony to the point I remember being stuck in the bathtub because I couldn’t move at all for the pain, I was out of breath and genuinely thought I was having a heart attack ( mother who has had multiple) I couldn’t raise my arms or move and I’ve never felt pain in my chest like it! Went to the hospital so many times only to be sent home, felt like I was going crazy! My heart rate was higher than normal but they still sent me home putting it down to “anxiety” I finally realised that it must be to do with what I’m consuming, because I started writing a diary of when it would happen. I remember a weekend break with an ex partner and we stopped for an all day breakfast, we came out of there and I could barely move, I wanted to scream with the pain I was in. I cut out gluten completely from my diet and all the chest pain vanished completely!
    I recently now 27 have been getting chest pain every few weeks and it occurred to me that it’s my toaster I share with my little boy, I have one side and he has the other but regardless I was getting cross contamination, recently got a two slice toaster just for me and its completely cleared up! The only time I have got chest pain over the years is from cross contamination or accidently consuming gluten in a small amount!

    I cannot eat any Wheat products. I get severe stomach pain and diarrhea. Also I get symptoms of having a heart attack. I’ve been in the hospital several times with symptoms of heart attack. Recently, my doctor wanted to do blood work for celiac disease. She said I would have to eat gluten products for 2 weeks. I told her I cannot do it I will suffer like a dog. So, she did genetic testing to see if I had the Celiac Gene. Afterwards I tested positive.
