  1. How Fast Does Gluten Affect Behavior?

    Thanks for the replies. We have a doctors appointment next week so I will see what the dr says. I don't really notice any intestinal time problems with him. He has never been very regular with his bm's. He also has had lot's of ear infections and his tooth enamel is damaged. The dentist had attributed the damaged enamel to the ear infections and fever. Now I'm wondering if all of that is linked to gluten!
  2. I have a 9 year old son who has some behavior issues. We are currently in the process of having him tested for adhd. While doing research on adhd I have found links to gluten intolerance. We did a one week gluten free trial and found he seemed calmer and easier to reason with. After the week trial we allowed him to have his regular breakfast cereal. Immediatly after eating he started acting up and running around. A VERY noticable change in behaviour. It was not the sugar in the cereal as throughout the week he had ate a gluten free cereal with a similar amount of sugar. I'm not sure if it is coincidence or not. He again is harder to reason with and his behaviour is not as good as the week gluten free. Does gluten have an immediate effect on behaviour? Thanks in advance for your replies.
