Default ADHD and CD - Pubmed

Improvement in symptoms was "significant". Now if only the docs would look beyond CD and consider gluten sensitivity without enteropathy.

A preliminary investigation of ADHD symptoms in persons with celiac disease.

* Niederhofer H,
* Pittschieler K.

Regional Hospital of Bolzano, Italy. helmutniederhofer@yahoo.de.

Objective: Several studies report a possible association of celiac disease (CD) with psychiatric and psychological disturbances, such as ADHD.Method: The authors assess 132 participants from 3 to 57 years of age (M = 19.3 years) affected by CD for the possibility of an associated ADHD-like symptomatology, using the Conner Scale Hypescheme, a behavioral scale similar to the Conners Rating Scales, before their gluten-free diet was started and 6 months later.Results: The overall score improves significantly as well as most of the ADHD-like symptomatology specific features (Bonferroni-corrected, paired-sample t tests).Conclusion: The data indicate that ADHD-like symptomatology is markedly overrepresented among untreated CD patients and that a gluten-free diet may improve symptoms significantly within a short period of time. The results of this study also suggest that CD should be included in the list of diseases associated with ADHD-like symptomatology.

Fantastic site, Hal. I'm in the middle of trying to get the local school districts, educational service districts and the state Department of Education (Oregon) to provide me with information re the number of children who have been diagnosed as being on the "autism spectrum" and who are taking "behavioral drugs" for the diagnosis so they will be able to attend school. Brick walls. Data unavailable. None of my business. Not for public "consumption." I just want raw numbers, no NAMES, fer goshsakes. Can you access this data in your state?

Found this federal government site, which shows 2003 data from ALL 50 states (see Figure 2): http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5434a2.htm

Interesting graph. I notice that AR, LA, TN and AL have the highest rates. I wonder how high the number is now. That was from 2003.
