Problems With Ignoring The Condition

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Im 18 diagnosed with celiac when I was 5 and since about the age of 14 (when I had the ability to buy my own food without my parents control) I stopped living on a gluten free diet, mostly because I didnt want to be singled out as different from my friends. However, recelntly I was wondering if there may be a link between my abuse of the allergy and the symptoms that I have which appear to be worryingly similar to ADHD. I know its a weird connection to make but I find myself easily distracted with bursts of energy and no time for sitting still. DO you reckon that this could be related.

Either way I am intending to fix my diet up but I was wondering if anyone had heard of a link before I try other routes to solve those issues.

Also how quickly would the benefits be noticeable

Yeah, probly so!

At 18, it's time to do whats right for you and not cave into "what's cool". Celiac is not an allergy, and it can have an effect on every part of your body. And the "cool" thing about being gluten free is that you're a step above the crowd. Cause you know what you want and into your health. It makes me feel special. :)

But to answer your question, the gluten free diet is suggested with kids with Autism. It helps settle them a bit, according to the research that I have seen.

What you are describing sounds like a neurological reaction of a Celiac person to gluten.

Many of us get jittery, anxiety,ADHD, can't focus, brain fog symptoms when we ingest gluten.

ADHD symptoms have been scientifically linked to gluten especially for Celiacs.

I hope you choose to come back to your gluten free life.

Many people feel the results of going gluten free really quickly.

Others take longer. I could tell in 2 days of going gluten free that I was getting better.

Go gluten free strictly and see if it clears up for you. I bet it does. I have read dozens of times that people feel mental clarity like never before once they go gluten free. It happened to me too. Calmer,peaceful, happy, good humor, no anxiety or brain fog or can't focus ADHD symptoms anymore for me.

....Unless....

I get Glutened.

Then it all comes back really really fast.

You'll have to eliminate it and see if it helps.

Don't worry about the time you were not gluten free.

Just start doing it now....

I bet you will feel a whole lot better!

Hi check out this thread on anger. Gluten can affect the brain in many ways, Some people develop gluten ataxia and have difficulty with walking. Others have anger or anxiety or memory problems. Some have all that fun stuff at once. There is also a heightened risk of getting other autoimmune disease with celiac if not treated with the gluten-free diet. Lupus, fibromyalgia, rhuematoid arthritis, T-1 diabetes Sjogrens' disease are a few of the not so fun things you could develop. Google on "celiac related conditions" to find lists. Plus you'll end up with donut breath if you keeping eating gluten. :)
