Does anyone know if celiac damage is linked to serotonin imbalance? I have heard that serotonin is produced in our intestines and I'm wondering if everything is supposed to get ironed out after eliminating gluten or does the lingering intestinal damage mess with serotonin levels? Am I making sense? My endo showed a lot of damage apparently. I have been gluten free for a couple years but I'm very depressed. I'm really not thrilled about the prospect of taking antidepressants (because of side effects, etc.) Anyone here still suffering from depression despite being gluten free? What meds work/didn't work for you? Thanks in advance.
SandraLAVixen posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsDoes anyone know of any reputable articles or information that links low serotonin levels to pain or seizures when consuming wheat/gluten? After nearly a year of testing I finally found one test that came back abnormal for low serotonin, it was not abnormal, just very low. I found that if I slept a lot before and after any meal with gluten, the pain would be minimal if not absent. Which otherwise would trigger intense pain and send me to the ER. I think I basically need more serotonin (or sleep?) in my system otherwise I would have extreme pain after consuming anything with gluten.
