Abstract:


Patients with noncoeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) can experience a range of gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms.

A study has now demonstrated that gluten is independently associated with depression in patients with NCGS.

NCGS-associated depression might share similar pathophysiological mechanisms to other neurological manifestations observed in gluten-related disorders, such as ataxia and encephalopathy.
