I was diagnosed with adult A.D.H.D. a few years ago-had it since childhood. Anyone else? I think it is a symptom. My mind is a bit more relaxed in the past couple gluten free weeks.

Yup. I have ADD when I'm eating gluten, as does my daughter. My son has ADHD and extreme dyslexia when on gluten. We're all much more able to think clearly without it. The GAPS diet has also helped. You might be interested in reading the book - it's all about the gut brain connection.

Studies are now starting to show links between celiac and ADHD, schizophrenia and other mental conditions. There are probably a lot more people with gluten sensitivity but not celiac (like myself), who benefit mentally from being gluten-free.

A bit of googling and pubmed searches will turn up some interesting stuff! Here's a start:

Yes. Definitely gluten related for my son. He was ADD with no hyperactivity. Gluten fog. Neurological effects of gluten. Age 7 to 15 he was in a gluten fog. Now at 17 he is bright, happy, funny, outgoing, mentally clear. It can definitely be gluten-related. If only Dr.'s knew. I had depression, anxiety and obsessive thinking. All of it is gone off of gluten. Mentally clear, happy, alert, unbelievable. Very grateful to know. You are only two weeks in. Hey, it just keeps getting better. :) You will see.
