This was a limited study. While it looked at folate and vitamins B12 and E, one major oversite of celiac disease research continues to be a dearth of knowledge about levels of essential fatty acids in celiac disease patients. Fat malabsorption is a primary symptom of celiac disease, and the consequences continue to be ignored. Meanwhile, an accumulation of evidence supports the critical role of omega-3 fatty acids in maintaining cognitive and mental health. Omega-3 supplementation has even reversed conditions such as schizophrenia in individuals, begging the question of whether it is gluten toxicity or a fatty acid deficiency that may cause schizophrenia in some celiacs.
