Has anyone here heard of this? I have been looking into a variety of things the past year or so to do with personality types and other functions that define us and came across this article. Thought it might be of interest to some who are confirmed Coeliacs and maybe help for those suspecting a family member of having it.

Celiac and the Gluten Gut-Brain Connection

Quote :
SPECT brain imaging of the majority of the few celiac disease patients
studied reveals abnormalities that are usually most severe in the
frontal areas of the brain. Improvement of these abnormalities are seen
on a gluten-free diet. The frontal area of the brain is important in
brain function that controls attention, impulse control, organization,
and problem solving. Problems in this area of the brain result in short
attention span, disorganization, procrastination, short-term memory
problems, anxiety and depression.
