I wanted to share this very interesting research from Penn State University, Syracuse University and Drexel University that shows that women with celiac disease are more likely than the general population to report symptoms of depression and disordered eating. What still needs to be determined is whether women with celiac disease are more likely to develop disordered eating and then become depressed or if women with celiac disease are depressed and then become stressed which leads to eating disorders. I’m sure this will lead to additional research to determine the cause and effects.
