Hi all. I have recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease (CD) and now wonder how much of my RLS/PLMD could be the result of an iron and/or other nutritional deficiency. My ferritin level is 160 so, a gluten-free diet may not help me re: RLS but, thought others should know that there is an established link (see attached studies).
Renal (kidney) and liver disease also have links to RLS. Celiac disease is severely under-diagnosed around the world.
So, just a friendly reminder of these potential secondary causes or worsening of RLS/PLMD and that treating these underlying conditions may improve your RLS/PLMD/quality of life.
