I experienced mild depression before I was 100% gluten free. I'm very careful now and pretty much have not experienced depression since. If I'm feeling blue or angry, I question what I have eaten and if I could have been exposed to hidden glutens. My gut has pretty much healed now since I've been on the diet for so long.

Depression is listed as one of the associated problems with gluten intolerance and CD. So there is a link there some how.

My 2 cents is that you are all correct. Serotonin and melatonin are produced in the intestines, if the intestines don't work correctly which CD and GI does, we're going to be depressed.

Read Elisabeth's book with a grain of salt, there is a lot of bad/incorrect/outdated before the book was published information in it.

My Mom sent me this article last week, I don't agree 100% but it does have some good points. news.yahoo.com/celiac-disease-women-

I am by no means a medical professional but I DO have celiac and I am extremely sensitive.

I take anti-depressants for my depression and I have for a long time. When my bowels are acting up all my test results show that I am really low on all the important things! I have asked my dr. if he thinks that I might not getting the full affect of the anti-depressant because of this. He tends to agree.

Adding to the depression is that I have little to no control of my bowels during these periods and it causes extremely embarrassing accidents. (I have NEVER admitted that outside the drs. office before!) That does not help with how I feel about myself either!

Live today like it is the only day that matters, because it is.

I'm curious to see others' responses to this as well as I have a mood disorder. I'm reading "The G-Free Diet" by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and it states that mood disorders can be a complication due to poor nutrition, specifically the B vitamins.

I don't know about you, but gluten sensitivity can result in tummy upsets and often diarrhea. Does anyone else have trouble with depression? Could it be that the melatonin is less effective because of the GI inflammation?? Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
