Are there any of you who's children have transient tics (like Tourette's) that are made worse by gluten??

Our oldest son is showing some transient tics and I am starting to wonder if HE has celiac...hmmmm?? He also has lots of anxiety.

What about stuttering/language delays??(this IS the celiac child)

Thanks in advance.....

Well, I don't have a child with this problem, but I am the one with Tourettes here. And yes, my tics are a ton worse with gluten, and so is my anxiety. And stuttering is considered a tic by many people. I usually never stutter, but will occasionally, especially when glutened.

My son has a speech delay!! And I know it was caused by gluten because he's 17 mo and he's at 10 months in speech which he started getting sick at 11 months. Also he has these tremors when he is glutened that are scary!! So you might want to try him on the gluten-free diet and see if he does better! :)

Gluten can cause seizure like activity in the brain. I had problems with gluten induced tics and my DD did also.

Jaybirdsmom, Interestingly my DD also lost her speech at a little over a year. All she could do was scream and bite. It turned out she had excessive fluid build up in her ears without any signs of infection. She had many sets of tubes and she went through years of speech therapy but by middle school only had a slight lisp. Make sure if you haven't already that you have him checked by an audiologist. She also had tremors and absence seizures. Now gone.
