chantaspell added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Anxiety, Panic, Depression And PhobiasHi,
I am currently investigating the possibility that various psychological symptoms I have are connected to gluten intolerance. I would be interested to hear how long it took other people with Celiac or undiagnosed gluten intolerance to feel better from anxiety, phobias, pani attacks and depression?

chantaspell added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Gluten Free - Various QuestionsHi, It is my first post here and I hope I am not covering too much old ground...I've had a search and can't find the answer to my question...
I recently took a celiac test (one of the do-it-yourself ones you can buy in a pharmacy) which showed that I didn't have celiac. The thing is though, I have many of the symptoms and am fairly convinced I react badly to wheat and other gluten containing products...
Therefore I am going to try and eliminate those foods and see if it makes a difference. But first I have a few questions:
1. How long should I eliminate the foods for? Assuming that I do have some kind of gluten intolerance how long will it be before i notice a difference? One of my main presenting symptoms anxiety/breathlessness after gluten meals and low mood/depression.
2. Do I need to cut out all gluten, including oats? or is a radical reduction enough at this experimental stage.
Many Thanks in advance for your help, this forum is great and with so much good advice from friendly people!
