Can a gluten-free diet help with stuttering? There is some evidence that perhaps it might.
According to the case records of the Massachusetts General Hospital, a middle-aged patient, after being diagnosed with CD (Celiac Disease), was found to have his speech abilities return after having been diagnosed with aphasia after a period of several months.
After all, it would make sense that eliminating gluten could help with neurological problems such as speech difficulty. Gluten sensitivity or celiac disease has been found in the majority of patients troubled by a neurological disease without a known origin. Furthermore, gluten-sensitive people who don’t have celiac disease outnumbers 2:1 the number of celiac patients. This means that even if someone tests negative for celiac disease that they may have a gluten sensitivity.
In conclusion, it would be worth your time to get tested for celiac disease if you have a neurologically-based stuttering problem of unexplained origin, and if the results are negative, you may want to try a gluten-free diet. Check with your doctor before making any such changes to your diet.
