Does anyone know of any reputable articles or information that links low serotonin levels to pain or seizures when consuming wheat/gluten?

After nearly a year of testing I finally found one test that came back abnormal for low serotonin, it was not abnormal, just very low.

I found that if I slept a lot before and after any meal with gluten, the pain would be minimal if not absent. Which otherwise would trigger intense pain and send me to the ER.

I think I basically need more serotonin (or sleep?) in my system otherwise I would have extreme pain after consuming anything with gluten.

Low neurotransmitters is an indication of malabsorption. I believe you need to remove all gluten in order for you to digest/absorb amino acids properly which will increase neurotransmitters - includung serotonin.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
