  1. Jennifer in PA says:

    One other cause comes to mind- celiac disease. The gluten in the body causes leaky gut syndrome and that can lead to brain fog among other things. My 14 yo dd recently figured out gluten is a problem for her and after going off gluten her head is much clearer and she has identified a decrease in brain fog.

    • Thank you Jennifer for sharing that with us. I was unaware that brain fog could be a symptom of Celiac disease. I find it interesting and alarming that more and more people are being diagnosed with celiac disease. I wish this wasn’t so and it makes me wonder why this is happening. Just a side note, I grew up in Pennsylvania. Every Blessing, Posey
