Learning Disability Tie to Gluten

by Jeannie
(Topsham, ME)

Hello.


There is much information out there about celiac and learning disabilities. My son is struggling with problems in school which sound so much like the ones I've read about which lessen with a GF diet. About a year ago, we had him tested for food allergies, and most came back negative (including gluten). We were told he has a very mild allergy to milk (the allergy was mild enough that the Dr said we didn't have to delete milk from his diet.

My question is can gluten affect the brain of someone who is not celiac or gluten intolerant? My husband is gluten intolerant...so there is some family history.

Any and all help is most welcome. We want to help our little guy in anyway we can.

Thank you,

Jeannie
