Brain Fog

Although many patients with celiac disease and gluten intolerance report experiencing “brain fog,” the term is not well understood in the medical community.

In discussion with The Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) has recognized that this is an important area in need of dedicated study. In an effort to provide some of the information needed to carry out these studies, NFCA is collecting information from people with celiac disease about this important symptom.

To help doctors unlock this neurological mystery, we ask that you circulate this message to your membership and invite them to take this free online survey.

It should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

Questions? Please contact NFCA’s Kristin Voorhees at Celiac Central (kvoorhees[at]

Many thanks for your consideration and assistance.
