Could anyone direct me to some good articles or sites on depression and anxiety in celiacs. My therapist is very interested in knowing more and how it affects our moods and so on. Thank you

These should get you started. When you go to the Pubmed links you should be able to find more. Using the words 'celiac' and 'neurological' or 'psychiatric' should bring up more articles. My psychiatrist was quite interested in learning more also. There are studies that have said that depressed patients who don't respond to meds should be screened for celiac. Many times removing gluten from our diets does help resolve problems with anxiety and depression.

They called it Bread Madness I found it very interesting.

Unfortunately Clinical Therapists and Psychologists are not trained at all regarding the neurological effects of gluten and the resulting profound depression and anxiety that can result. I got 2 degrees to treat depressed people and then got flattened by depression and anxiety and then years later realized I had been undiagnosed Celiac for years. Nothing in all of my years of education ever mentioned Celiac disease. Good for your therapist wanting to educate her/himself. More therapists need to know since they are the first line of treatment for people who only present with depression and anxiety as symptoms. I hope she gets information to her professional organizations and tells her colleagues.

Yes,more need to know about how celiac affects our brains. She is very interested in this. She has done some research to help me and I have printed out parts from the forum for her. I have been lucky to have her.
