Does a gluten free diet help lower antibodies?

Not generally. Often a person on a gluten free diet makes fewer antibodies to gluten than people eating gluten. So, if you are having a blood test to diagnose celiac disease, don't stop gluten before the blood is drawn. Antibody production overall remains the same as long as one eats a balanced diet with good nutrition. The standard test for celiac disease is still the intestinal biopsy; eat gluten until then .
Yes. Patients with celiac disease who follow a strict gluten free diet with usually stop producing pathologic antibodies to ttg and resultant improvement in small bowel inflammation.

Why does a gluten free diet help reduce narcolepsy and cataplexy symptoms for some narcoleptics even if tests show they have no gluten sensitivities?

It probably doesn't. I don't believe that a gluten-free diet would treat narcolepsy. A thorough search on pubmed did not reveal any publications demonstrating a connection between narcolepsy or cataplexy and gluten consumption. It is possible that by adopting a gluten-free diet, one might also consume fewer simple carbohydrates, and that could reduce reactive hypoglycemia (which can make you feel tired). Read more...
Not entirely known. There is a link between carbohydrates and narcolepsy. So similar products containing gluten and carbohydrates and just the digestion of gluten itself may contribute. It is one of the things that i talk to my newly diagnosed narcoleptics about. Read more...

Some symptoms can be fatigue, sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, and "fuzzy thinking" -- which can all overlap with narcolepsy (at least the falling asleep part). If you are a person with this food sensitivity, you could feel a lot better off gluten -- even though this does not cure narcolepsy. Read more...

Can eating a gluten-free diet help prevent or delay the onset of Celiac disease?

Not exactly . If you have celiac disease, then a gluten-free diet will help delay the onset of symptoms from it.

Can I eat chocolate on a gluten free diet?

Maybe. Pure chocolate is ok (tastes bad), but it's the combination of chocolate and cocoa butter (like pure chocolate, a product of the cacao beans), sugar, milk (in some cases) and other ingredients that make "chocolate" such a taste sensation. And those other ingredients are where any gluten-related problems are introduced. There are some "gluten free" chocolate bars made though. Best wishes. Read more...
