Depression and Celiac Disease
It’s no secret that psychological symptoms can be associated with celiac disease, but until recently, no one had really done a solid prospective study on children. A research team has now done just that. In this case, they looked at a group of children with celiac disease autoimmunity, which is persistently positive celiac disease–associated tissue transglutaminase autoantibodies (tTGA).
Recent studies indicate that depression and anxiety are the main reasons people with celiac disease report decreased quality of life.
Celiac disease has been linked to decreased quality of life and certain mood disorders. The effect of the gluten free diet on these psychological aspects of celiac disease is still unclear.
