Celiac Disease and Mental Health
A wide range of psychological problems can arise for patients with untreated celiac disease or non-celiac wheat sensitivity. These can include difficulties adjusting to a new diagnosis of chronic illness as well as dealing with adherence to a gluten-free diet and other aspects of disease management. Conversely, those with celiac disease or non-celiac wheat sensitivity may be misdiagnosed with a psychiatric illness due to some of the neurological and psychiatric symptoms that can be seen in untreated disease.
For the celiac disease community, the greatest gift of all this season is to assure full recognition of celiac disease by the medical community with rapid diagnosis and treatment for the 2.5 million Americans still undiagnosed. CDF provides hope and help to people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity and their loved ones.
