Ask the Doc: Sleep issues and celiac

Posted By Alison On Jan 10, 2008 @ In Ask the Doc | 3 Comments

Q. I’m writing about an 11-year old boy who has shown some of the symptoms of Celiac disease. He also is having sleeping issues. To be specific, he’s still wetting the bed and he rarely sleeps though the night. He can’t fall asleep and he wakes throughout the night. Do you believe there could be a correlation?

A. You must actively pursue the diagnosis of celiac disease with a pediatric gastroenterologist, as there may be a relation. If so, treatment with a gluten-free diet could help.
Health and happiness,
Dr. Aron
