I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1998, and over the years have developed serious insomnia problems. I've heard that many celiac sufferers have trouble sleeping - true? By trial & error I've found that if I avoid certain foods or supplements I sleep much better. For instance, I don't sleep well (or at all) when I consume foods with high tannin (polyphenol) content (pecans, pistachio nuts, tea, blueberries, etc). Also foods containing high amounts of vitamin A and E (oil base vitamins) as well as certain inactive ingredients in supplements. My sleep sensitivity could be related to the leaky gut condition but I don't really know. Any other celiacs have problems with insomnia?
