Autism and Celiac Disease

This category contains summaries of research articles that deal with autism and it's association with celiac disease. Most of the articles are research summaries that include the original source of the summary.

    Many theories have been fielded about autism. Some research careers have been made by investigating autism, while other careers have been seriously damaged when that research threatened some sacred cows of allopathic medicine. Yet despite all of this active research exploring the world of autism, we continue to experience exponential increases in rates at which autism is diagnosed. And debate continues unabated regarding the causes and appropriate treatments. Part of this increasing trend is, doubtless, because we have gotten better at recognizing the various manifestations of this debilitating condition. However, the evidence indicates that there is a dramatic increase in the absolute incidence of autism.

    NIH has awarded a $3 Million grant to Dr. Betty Diamond and Dr. Peter Gregersen to explore the relationship between a mother’s autoimmunity during pregnancy and the risk of ASD in her child.

    Whether you are an adult or a child, you could have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism or even Asperger's Syndrome. If you do not have enough symptom improvements with the traditional treatments, then why not consider an alternative therapy? What about a gluten-free diet?

    A gluten-free diet does nothing to improve behaviors or symptoms of children with autism, according to the most comprehensive and carefully controlled research on diet in autism to date.

    Most case reports suggest an association between autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) and celiac disease (CD) or positive CD serologic test results, but larger studies are contradictory.

    A team of researchers recently set out to assess immune reactivity to gluten in children diagnosed with autism according to strict criteria, and to evaluate the potential link between autism and celiac disease.

    Over the past several years, researchers have made substantial progress in understanding the causes of autism, which now afflicts about 1 in 88 children. However, very little news of this progress seems to have spread into popular consciousness, much of which continues to focus on the possible role of vaccines.

    Studies on the gluten-free and/or casein-free (GFCF) dietary intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) suggest that some children may positively respond to implementation of the dietary intervention.

    A recent segment of the PBS series, Autism Now, features an extended interview with Dr. Timothy Buie, who makes some interesting points regarding connections between autism, diet, and gastrointestinal issues.

    Kids whose moms have autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and celiac disease face a risk of autism that is up to three times higher than that of the general population, according to a new study.

    Once people become aware and informed about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and understand how it works they may wish to give it serious consideration as an effective dietary intervention for autism an other behavioral conditions.

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is an excellent option in dietary intervention for celiac disease and was originally developed for that purpose over fifty years ago by Dr. Sydney Valentine Haas. Dr. Haas treated over 600 cases of celiac disease with his Specific Carbohydrate Diet, maintaining his patients on it for at lease twelve months, and found that the prognosis of celiac disease was excellent. "There is complete recovery with no relapses, no deaths, no crisis, no pulmonary involvement and no stunting of growth." 05/08/2007 - A recent news release by the American Academy of Neurology claims that res
