I usually post at the Ulcerative Colitis section of this forum but I validity to post here as well because I do suffer from depression and am on 150 mg of wellbutrin (thank god for the no sexual side effects).
Anyways in some cases (I have no website to back this up because I cant find it at the moment) but depression could be linked to diet. FOr instance if you are gluten, dairy, soy , yeast, and/or egg intollerant then that could magnify your depression. I am awaiting test results to determine if I am anything intollerant then if I am I will modify my diet accordingly. Intollerances are also believed by some to be an underlying caus of some forms of colitis (inflammation in the colon). For instance by eliminating gluten many with Miscroscopic colitis find great relief from their symptoms (including depression and anxiety).
Has anyone had experience with diet and depression? I know this may sound way out in left field but what if it can help?
Is it UC or MC?
