It's no secret that gluten sensitivity can cause a slew of unpleasant symptoms, including abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. But can gluten intolerance also lead to brain fog?
A recent study published in the journal PLoS One provides some evidence that this may be the case. The study looked at 113 people who had been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity and found that those who reported experiencing brain fog also had higher levels of inflammation in their brains.
While more research is needed to confirm whether or not gluten sensitivity causes brain fog, this study provides a strong argument for cutting out gluten if you're struggling with cognitive issues. If you're not sure whether or not you have gluten intolerance, there are several tests you can take, including the celiac disease blood test, the gliadin antibody test and the deamidated gliadin antibody test.
