Putting children with autism on the gluten-free/casein-free diet is an intervention measure which has been found to have positive effects on autistic behavioral problems. It’s common that children with autism have various food sensitivities and gastrointestinal symptoms, particularly in relation to grains. However, recent research supported by Tehran University of Medical Sciences suggests there is no link between autism and celiac disease. Of the thirty-four children studied, it was found they were at no more risk for developing celiac disease than children who do not have autism. While a gluten-free diet is found to be beneficial for those with autism in managing behavioral symptoms, no direct link to gluten intolerance is suggested. This research counters the previously considered links between the two conditions.
