Background: A high prevalence of anxiety and depression has been reported in untreated coeliac disease (CD) patients. At present, the role of a gluten-free diet (GFD) on psychological disorders is still poorly known. The aim of this study was to evaluate state and trait anxiety and depression in adult CD patients before and after 1 year of GFD. Methods: A total of 35 CD patients were studied before and after 1 year of GFD. A total of 59 healthy subjects matched for gender, age and socio… 
Gluten-free diet may alleviate depressive and behavioural symptoms in adolescents with coeliac disease: a prospective follow-up case-series study
TLDR
Preliminary results of the amino acid analysis and prolactin levels in adolescents give support to previous findings on patients with coeliac disease, suggesting that serotonergic dysfunction due to impaired availability of tryptophan may play a role in vulnerability to depressive and behavioural disorders also among adolescents with untreated coeliasis.
Anxiety Symptoms in Adult Celiac Patients and the Effect of a Gluten-Free Diet: An Iranian Nationwide Study
TLDR

Anxiety and depression in adult patients with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet.
TLDR
Female German female celiacs on a GFD should be screened for anxiety, higher than in persons of the GP, and the level of depression and a probable depressive disorder were not predicted by any of the demographic and medical variables tested for.
Affective disorders and quality of life in adult coeliac disease patients on a gluten-free diet
TLDR
In coeliac disease, affective disorders should be ascribed to difficulties in adjusting to the chronic nature of the disease rather than directly to the disease itself, thus giving an indication for preventive liaison psychiatric interventions.
Quality of Life and Psychological Disorders in Coeliac Disease: A Prospective Multicentre Study
TLDR
A significant improvement in quality of life, anxiety and depression scores at 1 year after diagnosis is observed, particularly in patients who complied with a GFD, and psychological counselling should be used when needed.
Effects of Gluten-Free Diet on Quality of Life and Depression in Children With Celiac Disease
TLDR
CD negatively affected quality of life in children and adherence to GFD was associated with reduction in depression symptoms, suggesting improving the adherence of celiac patients to a GFD may have a favorable effect on their depression symptoms.
Depression and insomnia among individuals with celiac disease or on a gluten-free diet in the USA: results from a national survey
TLDR
Comparing the prevalence of depression, insomnia, quality-of-life variables, and psychotropic medication use in CD participants and PWAGs to controls found participants with CD overall showed no increased odds of depression or sleep difficulty.

Depressive symptoms in adult coeliac disease.
TLDR
Depressive symptoms are a feature of CD; they are present to a similar extent in patients with childhood- and adulthood-diagnosed CD and the results underline the relevance of personal psychologic resources, which play a fundamental role in determining and sustaining depression.
Anxiety and depression in adult untreated celiac subjects and in patients affected by inflammatory bowel disease: a personality "trait" or a reactive illness?
TLDR
The results shown that anxiety is present as a "reactive" form and personality trait anxiety has no effect in celiac and IBD patients, and data confirm a possible linkage between brain functions and malabsorption.
Differences in metabolic variables between adult coeliac patients at diagnosis and patients on a gluten-free diet.
TLDR
Body composition, dietary habits, basal energy expenditure, and substrate oxidation were investigated in patients with the classic form of coeliac disease, finding that untreated patients had lower fat mass and FFM content than controls.
Quality of life of adult coeliac patients treated for 10 years.
TLDR
After 10 years on a GFD adult coeliac patients fail to attain the same degree of subjective health as the general population, particularly true for female patients, which suggests that factors beyond normalization of the intestinal mucosa are of importance for the perceived health status of coeeliacs diagnosed in adult life.
Anxiety and depression: a common feature of health care seeking patients with irritable bowel syndrome and food allergy.
TLDR
A higher prevalence of state anxiety found in patients complaining of bowel symptoms could be linked to the presence of chronic ill status, which could be responsible for an increase in the activity of the autonomic nervous system and could provoke motility alterations through mast cell mediator release.
Psychic disturbances in adult coeliac disease. III. Reduced central monoamine metabolism and signs of depression.
TLDR
The concentrations of three major monoamine metabolites in samples of lumbar cerebrospinal fluid of ten consecutive adults with newly detected coeliac disease were inversely correlated with depressive symptoms reported on the MMPI scale 2 ('depression'), which conforms with current concepts on the pathogenesis of depression.
State and trait anxiety in women affected by allergic and vasomotor rhinitis.
Psychic Disturbances in Adult Coeliac Disease
TLDR
The concentrations of three major monoamine metabolites in samples of lumbar cerebrospinal fluid of ten consecutive adults with newly detected coeliac disease were inversely correlated with depressive symptoms reported on the MMPI scale 2, which conforms with current concepts on the pathogenesis of depression.
Inflammatory bowel disease: a study of the association between anxiety and depression, physical morbidity, and nutritional status.
TLDR
State anxiety and depression were significantly associated with physical morbidity and correlated with malnutrition in CD and UC patients, and personality trait of anxiety does not seem to play an important role in inflammatory bowel disease.
Malignancy in coeliac disease--effect of a gluten free diet.
TLDR
The results indicate that for coeliac patients who have taken a GFD for five years or more the risk of developing cancer over all sites is not increased when compared with the general population, and give further support for advising all patients to adhere to a strict G FD for life.
