Can celiac disease cause anxiety?

Chronic illness: Anxiety is not a feature of celiac disease but you may feel anxious on accidental or inadvertent exposure to gluten especially when eating out at restaurant and friends. If you have had significant malnourishment due to the gluten intolerance and are in the process of recovering, you may also be anxious about that too. But you may need to consult a psychologist or psychiatrist.

Yes: It is interestingly associated with anxiety. Anxiety plus chronic fatigue, diarrhea, weight loss are alerting signs.

A 36-year-old female asked:

So then I'm wondering if I have Celiac Disease with my Anxiety, or could I have Celiac Disease with Anxiety?

See your Dr: Whichever came first, treat both. There is often a connection with our mind and body. If you get your celiac under control, it will help your anxiety. If you deal with your anxiety, it will help you feel better. See your PCP or Gastroenterologist for your celiac and a therapist for your anxiety.
