Do you have any more infrmation on that research? Links or who published it? I would be interested to read it if you do. Doctors Ive talked to havent known of any reaserch into this area, or any concrete links.
I dont think that you will be able to convince me that my eating disorder was purely a result of undiagnosed coeliacs. There are far too many other issues involved. It is interesting though, I can certainly see that my compulsive eating as a child could well be related to undiagnosed problems, especially as it was often bread, pasta, and wheat containing things that I would binge eat. 4
However there is a difference between anorexia (loss of appetite = due to physiological reasons) and Anorexia Nervosa ('Nervous' loss of appetite = due to psychological reasons). I never just lost my appetite, I worked insanely hard to lose wieght, and pushed my body through hell, not because of physical discomfort, but because of emotional reasons.
Reading through what people have written here, I see things like "adversion to food" and "anorexia like symptoms". That sounds like anorexia to me as in loss of appetite, possibly sub-clinical anorexia, rather than anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa which are psychological problems and dispite what anyone says thier cause and focus is not food.
