Gluten & Anxiety?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

DH and anxiety? Does anybody have any thoughts or knowledge on a relationship between increase in anxiety/phobias and gluten? I'm only just into the diagnosis stage yet but I've upped my gluten in take x 10 the past few months leading up to my blood tests today and my anxiety (to be precise cleithrophobia) has been through the roof. It's lingered on and off in the background for years but I've never felt so close to panic attacks etc as I've done lately. Might be completely unrelated? I've also broken out in painful cystic acne, few on cheek and chin. ??

I FINALLY had my blood tests today for coeliac and thyroid (nurse was unable to tell me what panels the Dr had asked for). Results follow up appointment next week.  I had a mini elbow breakout this past week. As per my previous posts last month, I've been getting elbow bumps for 10 yrs but I've never had an outbreak so close to one ending before.  Pictures of latest minisode below. As always, thoughts and expertise from you guys is much appreciated.

Damaged villi can lead to less absorption of B-vitamins, vitamin D, magnesium, etc....look up deficiency symptoms of these you will start seeing matches. In some people we also have our immune systems attack our nervous system causing confusion, brain fog, and brain damage refereed to as gluten ataxia....there have been studies that found that celiacs with this end up with lesions in their brain matter from the attacks.

Gluten causes me anxiety as well as depression, brain fog etc. 

This paper outlines some of the ways that gluten impacts on mental health: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/
