My ds just turned 8. I had him tested for IgG & IgE allergies about a year ago. He tested positive for IgE: eggs, fish and IgG: gluten. I cut out most of the gluten (we had already eliminated the eggs and fish), but I didn't see much of a change in his health. He seems to be on a cycle of getiing "sick" every 4-6 weeks. He starts with a runny nose for a day or two, that turns into a fever (around 102), rapid heart rate, shallow breathing, then comes the cough. The cough is the deep chest kind, sort of croupy sounding. After a few days of the cough, he seems fine again. Whenever he starts to show signs - the runny nose - we get very strict with the gluten.
My question is: does this sound like normal gluten allegy symptoms? A cycle? I just want to make sure that there isn't something I am missing. He had severe eczema as an infant. We did not treat it with drugs and it cleared before he turned one. I think he may have asthma...unless it is just induced by the gluten allergy.
