I know Anxiety and Depression are quite common illnesses but I have read many article's etc about people with celiac disease having double the risk of getting these conditions . Do we get a different form of Anxiety and Depression ? I know vitamin deficiency especially vitamin D can cause depression , and lots of Celiac's have vitamin D deficiency .
I have had depression and anxiety since the end of 2008 , I think it's mainly due to my health problems , my sister's health problems and 1 or 2 other things . I really don't know how to fix my anxiety and depression I have been to family counselling and had counselling by myself which helps a bit . I also have taken many vitamin D supplements since 09 but my level just won't go up much .
I did wonder about self help workbooks for anxiety and depression anyone tried these ? I'm just worried the anxiety and depression is caused by celiac disease or the problems I mentioned above I just don't understand how I can fix these problems as I can't change what has happened with celiac disease or the other problems that I mentioned above if they are the cause of the anxiety and depression which i'm 99 % sure they are . It's very frustrating having physical pain due to complications of celiac disease and than these anxiety and depression problems on top are very difficult to deal with too.
If anyone has any on advice that would be great ?
