Celiac disease associated with depression in adolescents

Celiac disease associated with depression in adolescents
May 26, 2016

SAN DIEGO —  Celiac disease was associated with major depressive disorder in adolescents, as most adolescents with celiac disease have symptoms consistent with the disorder, according to findings presented at Digestive Disease Week 2016.

“Our interim analysis does suggest that a majority of adolescents living with celiac disease may have symptoms consistent with major depressive disorder,” Jonathan Cordova, DO, pediatric gastroenterologist at the University of Chicago Medical Center, said during a presentation. “The quality of life is affected by depression in a negative manner, but does not appear to be associated with their celiac disease state.”
