I'm new to the ADD board, but I am a regular on the IBS board. By going to the IBS board, I discovered I have Celiac disease which is a gluten intolerance. I can't eat wheat, rye, barley or oats. I also had Graves disease and there is a direct link between Graves and Celiac. Now I have disovered my son has ADD. I've read some indications of their being a link between ADD, Austism, Downs syndrome and Celiac Disease. Now, I'm beginning to wonder if it goes full circle. Celiac to Graves to ADD. If I had discovered Celiac before the Graves, the Graves wouldn't have happened. I'm trying an experiment with my son and I"m going to be feeding him more protein and less carbohydrates and trying to eliminate wheat and see what happens. This is just a theory of mine. There are several Celiac websites that link ADD with Celiac and Celiac with Graves. Too concidental?
