Celiac disease not associated with depression in adolescents

May 26, 2016

SAN DIEGO — Celiac disease was not associated with major depressive disorder in adolescents, according to findings presented at Digestive Disease Week 2016. However, most adolescents with celiac disease did have symptoms consistent with the disorder.
