What causes shortness on breath while suffering from celiac disease?

I have celiac, at times, I feel the need to yawn all the time to get that last good breath. Prednisone helps , but, I can t be on this forever. I make sure I have no gluten in my diet. My doctor thinks it my heart, but, I have had that checked out. Help

According to a few studies, they say there are few unproven correlations between Celiac diseases and Shortness of breathing which is not related to Cardiac or Pulmonary problems.

The only way to avoid it is complete gluten free or wheat free diet. If symptoms persist longer, then consult a Gastroenterologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
