  6. Hello - I am 39years old and I was diagnosed with celiac about two weeks ago. Probably the biggest struggle in my life up until now has been with depression. I have been through talk therapy for years and have been on zoloft for years. From what have been reading there seems to be some connection between celiac and depression. Has anyone followed the gulten free diet for a period of time found some relief from depression? Thanks!
