Topics I've Started

Anxiety, Panic, Depression And Phobias

11 June 2009 - 01:31 AM


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?

Many Thanks


Gluten Free - Various Questions

09 June 2009 - 11:34 AM

Hi, 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!
