Coeliac Disease Link With ADHD

 There have been a number of reports of a possible

link between coeliac disease and diseases associated

with psychological disturbances such as ADHD.

In a recent study researchers attempted to

establish whether a gluten free diet could

allevaite behavioural symptoms in patients with

both coeliac disease and ADHD. 67 subjects with

ADHD were enrolled in the study of whom a

 

 

 

significant number were found to also have coeliac disease. After switching to a

gluten free diet the patients with both problems, or their parents reported a

significant improvement in their behaviour and functioning.
