Can gluten cause or contribute to epilepsy or seizure issues? The simple answer is yes. There have been several research studies confirming this link. Discovery Health channel actually had a new special on the topic as well. Gluten can act as a neurotoxin. It can disrupt the blood brain barrier (leaky brain) and lead to multiple types of neurological problems, seizures and epilepsy being part of this.
If you have a diagnosis of epilepsy, it is important to have a conversation with your doctor about ruling out gluten sensitivity. Additionally, you should be aware that anti seizure medications can actually cause vitamin deficiencies. Some of these vitamin deficiencies can cause seizure. So make sure your doctor is also monitoring your b-vitamins.
