Consuming gluten is typically safe for most people, unless you are intolerant or allergic to the protein. Gluten intolerance, also known as celiac disease, is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks the lining of the small intestines, causing permanent damage.
Mucus and Allergies
If you develop excessive mucus in your sinuses and lungs, you most likely are experiencing an allergy to gluten, not intolerance. During an allergic reaction to gluten, the immune system overreacts to the protein and identifies it as a harmful substance. The body responds by attacking the protein with immunoglobulin E antibodies and histamine. Histamine is produced by mast cells in soft tissues and increases blood flow, causes inflammation and stimulates mucus production. Increased mucus causes nasal congestion, post-nasal drip and congestion in your chest.
Other symptoms that may accompany increased mucus production include skin rashes, eczema, hives, swelling in the face or throat, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and shortness of breath.
If you are either allergic to or intolerant of gluten, you will need to implement a gluten-free diet to prevent symptoms and further complications.
