Hmmmm...I thought dyslexia could be improved on a gluten free diet. Maybe not in all cases but I could swear I saw dyslexia as a symptom somewhere. :unsure:

No. Unless the language impairments were a result of being in a peptide induced fog while language was developing...as my son was. He's not dyslexic. I have a friend who's dyslexic, I was an middle school English teacher ( I like to keep that info on the "down-low* as I don't want people "tsking" at my mulitude of mistakes while posting!) I HAVEN'T TAUGHT IN 11 YEARS, PEOPLE!! :lol: Anyway, I've worked with dyslexic children. It's a little more than celiac disease at play.

I doubt that dyslexia is CAUSED by gluten, but I'm sure being glutened isn't exactly helpful to somebody with dyslexia. So, in that sense, I'm sure somebody with dyslexia can think more clearly and do somewhat better on a glutenfree diet, if they are intolerant to gluten.

I have dyscalculia, and there is no doubt that numbers aren't as confusing to me when my mind is working right. I can see a big difference when I have eaten something wrong for me (including gluten) versus eating safe foods.

I think the only way to know is to try the gluten-free diet. I don't know if dyslexia can be caused by gluten, but I think it's entirely possible that if a person is sensitive to gluten, it could make a difficult situation worse.

Personally, I never, EVER would have thought that my chronic pain had anything to do with gluten. I had heard some mention here and there, but nothing specifically like what I was dealing with. But, when I went off gluten, the pain that I was dealing with 24/7/365 vanished. Poof! All gone! It was like someone flipped a switch. When I get glutened, the pain comes back.

I never would have known what a life-changing thing just going gluten-free would be for me if I hadn't just given it a shot. I also did the genetic testing, and I don't have either of the two celiac genes, but have the gluten sensitivity gene. I've seen people on here with the same genetic results as me who have decided that since they don't have celiac, then gluten free isn't an answer for them and they go away without even trying gluten-free.

So, just give it a shot. There's nothing to lose by trying it.

I have dyslexia too, and no other then the normal brain fog stuff, gluten has no impact on it that I have seen.

My daughter has just been dx dyslexic and she is a lot better gluten-free than she was before. She seems able to concentrate more now and has less visual disturbance when reading. We both have terrible short term memory problems, messy bedrooms!, It did actually say on her Assessment ' can be forgetful and her ability to maintain concentration is poor. this may be in part a result of her wheat intolerance; symptoms of attentional difficulties are frequently reported in these cases'.
