Gluten Intake and Difficulty Concentrating

Gluten Intake and Difficulty Concentrating

  Now I have a much greater idea about why sometimes I have a hard time concentrating.  It seems I might be the last person to hear that for persons with Celiac Disease, Difficulty Concentrating can be a symptom of gluten exposure.

  There are a number of articles about it:

  For a long time I just assumed that I had an undiagnosed case of ADD or ADHD.. which I guess could be the case still, but this makes more sense, as I have been validly diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

  So, I have always been curious (like on the technical end) about Celiac Disease, since my diagnosis over a decade ago.  Somehow, though, lately, I have been reading and taking in a lot more about this disease and the “Difficulty Concentrating” thing just hit home in a big way.

  Maybe this is why I have always been a list-maker.  I have had two Palm Pilots.  You know….?

  I am glad.

  Now, what can I do about it?
