    A new study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology finds a connection between asthma and celiac disease.  This is just one more study that connects breathing disorders to food allergy.   Most doctors focus on air born allergies when trying to treat asthma.   It is nice to see researchers looking into food as a cause.  Thank you Fox News for bringing this issue to light for thousands of viewers!

    All that being said, it would be nice if the TV doctors would get it right once in a while.

    Gluten Sensitivity is not a disease, it is a state of genetics.   When gluten sensitivity goes unidentified it triggers disease (on average at about the age of 45).  Many of the diseases triggered by gluten are autoimmune in nature.  Autoimmune disease typically take years to manifest and diagnose (this is why the average person is diagnosed so late in life).   Celiac disease is just one of the many manifestations of disease induced by gluten.

      I have severe asthma that has gotten worse over the past 10 years. Every time I would get a cold, it would turn into pneumonia, bronchitis, repeated visits to the doctor, emergency room, many weeks off work and some hospitalizations. I spoke to my doctors (primary care, allergy/asthma, pulmonologist) and they didn’t seem to think gluten would be causing my issues.

      I have other food allergies, so after the prodding of my sister, I did a gluten free trial for 2 weeks. For the first time in years, I could walk and talk at the same time without wheezing and shortness of breath!

      I have had testing done for Celiac and wheat/barley/rye allergies since then but the results have come back negative. But what has been considered the conclusive “elimination diagnostic” test for me and some of the urgent care and emergency room docs that I’ve seen over the past 2+ years is the hives and asthma flare that happen if I manage to consume gluten.

      My life with asthma is much easier since going gluten free (but if I do have a flare up, I still end up on prednisone, just not hospitalized).

      i had asthma with serious allergies since i been a little child , my parents took me to swimming lessons for years to help me deal with my asthma and whenever i maintained regular swimming activity my condition was ok. however in last few years (i”m 35 years old) my asthma got much worst perhaps it due to age and even swimming, inhales or inhalation did not manage to help , my asthma was mainly at night and i often found i can”t fall asleep because of it.
      in the last months thing gotten so bad that i couldn”t sleep for days in a raw despite being very exhausted and using several doses of inhalation , my sister told me by the way about a friend that had stomach pains for years and it turned to be gluten so i thought that after swimming , yoga , chinese needles, inhalers and other staff why shouldn’t i try to cut gluten after all what could be worst than now?
      to my amazement all symptomes of asthma and allergies was stopped after 24 hours without gluten… when i carried deeper in my non gluten diet i discovered that its not a temporary break in my ever going state of asthma/allergies and that all symptoms really got much weaker if not completely stopped.
      after a lifetime of dealing with all this problems it is unbelievable to me to sneeze a few time a day like normal humans do rather than every hour (or worst…) i really feel like i started my life a new again and that i can live it live and enjoy them all other people.
