Parkinson's?

Recommended Posts

Is there a connection between celiac and parkinson's? My daughter has been diagnosed with celiac and my Mom has been diagnosed with Parkinson like symptoms - I wondered about nerve disorders from someone having untreated celiac for so long - can it be like Parkinson's? There is a long history of small stature in my Mom's family. Just searching for answers - wondering if some of my Mom's issues might actually be celiac. Thanks!

It would be a good idea to advise your Mom to get tested for celiac. Celiac can cause damage to the brain and nervous system. In some cases they will resolve, at least partially after someone has been on the diet for a while. If she is seeing a neuro and has had a brain MRI celiacs with brain impact will show something called UBO's or Unidentified Bright Objects. Not all neuro's know that is diagnostic of celiac that has attacked the brain.
