Children with celiac disease have been found to have lower than normal levels of tryptophan and other associated amino acid precursors. These deficiencies can then lead to higher rates of depression and behavioral disorders. It was found in a recent study, that those children with celiac disease who complied with a gluten free diet experienced a decrease in the severity and frequency of depression and associated psychiatric behaviors.
IV therapies available here at the Institute for Progressive Medicine can also be beneficial for those with celiac disease. For more information, please call reception at 949-600-5100.
