Is gluten linked to depression?

A recent pilot study completed by Monash University and Alfred researchers has found that many patients with self reported non coeliac gluten sensitivity continued to suffer from gastrointestinal symptoms on a gluten free diet, but had an improved mental state. Prof Peter Gibson, who co-authored the study said that the results were surprising. "We found that gluten ingestion was associated with significantly higher depression scores compared to a placebo diet," Prof Gibson said. A larger study, currently in its recruitment phase, will further examine these results. See pilot study
