Who should be Gluten-Free? Some parents and professionals suggest children with Autism may benefit!

Well, that’s a tough question, one that comes up often & is becoming more difficult to answer, as I’m starting to feel personally like almost everyone should be.  It seems like such a toxic thing to me now, but I’ve been gluten-free & much healthier for almost a year now.  Not a single migraine and they used to be crippling to me, believe me.  Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to go over some suggestions by professionals for which groups of people who should be gluten-free.  (studies, publications, etc.)  I myself am gluten intolerant, some of the same symptoms as Celiac, but not an autoimmune disease.

There has been a lot of talk about children with Autism and also ADHD benefitting from being gluten-free.  Here is just another study that came out from Penn State that is again reaffirming these suggestions.

Parents report gluten-, casein-free diet helps some kids with autism (click here to read full article published)

Editor’s note: The results in this study indicate that a correlation exists between a casein-free, gluten-free diet and parent’s report of improved ASD behaviors, physiological symptoms and social behaviors among their children with ASD. The results do not suggest that a casein-free, gluten-free diet causes improved ASD behaviors, physiological symptoms and social behaviors among children with ASD.”
