    A number of studies have indicated that kids with celiac disease face an increased risk for mood disorders, anxiety and behavioral disorders, ADHD, ASD, and intellectual disability. A new study by a team of researchers in Sweden puts it more precisely. They put the increased risk for psychiatric disorders in children with celiac disease at 1.4-fold over kids without celiac disease.

    The research team assessed the risk of any type of childhood psychiatric disorders, including psychosis, mood, anxiety, and eating disorders, psychoactive substance misuse, behavioral disorder, ADHD, ASD, and intellectual disability, in children aged 18 and younger, along with their siblings.

    Many people with celiac disease report symptoms of depression, but a new study out of Australia suggests that gluten can cause depression in people with non-celiac gluten-sensitivity.

    Some studies have shown that people with untreated celiac disease can have higher rates of psychiatric disorders, but little study has been made to determine whether people with psychiatric disorders have higher rates of celiac disease.

    New insights into celiac disease and schizophrenia
    Do you know where LSD comes from? It is made from gluten grains.  In 1938 Albert Hofmann, a Swiss chemist, discovered LSD, having refined it from a mold that grows on grains.  However, it was not until 1943 that he discovered its psycho-active properties.  In his own words Hofmann states: “I synthesized the diethylamide of Iysergic acid with the intention of obtaining an analeptic.”

    Doctors are recommending that kids with mental and behavioral disorders, and with low cholesterol be tested for celiac disease.

    Researchers believe that proteins found in the gluten of wheat, rye and barley might play a role in triggering schizophrenia in people with a genetic risk for the condition, or in worsening symptoms in people who have the disease.
