Is there a connection between severe cerebral palsy and increased gluten sensitivity?

Author information

Department of Paediatrics, Orebro University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden.


In nine children with severe cerebral palsy (CP), feeding difficulties and poor development of weight and height, laboratory markers for metabolic and enteral dysfunction were studied.


Four of the nine patients with CP had increased levels of antigliadin antibodies AGA (IgA), a finding which calls for further studies concerning the possible connection between increased celiac markers and CP.
