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.
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.
Psychic disturbances in adult coeliac disease. III. Reduced central monoamine metabolism and signs of depression.
TLDR
