Fatigue occurs in 78-80% of individuals with undiagnosed celiac disease.
Children deserve to do their best in school, without brain fog, exhaustionor other celiac symptomsgetting in the way.
Consuela knows the problem all too well:
"At school, I would suffer from brain fog, especially after lunch. One doctor guessed I was probably hypoglycemic, but it didn't really matter whether or not I ate a balanced low glycemic diet, because I still had to fight the urge not to fall asleep afterwards. I was a complete zombie and could not concentrate." -Consuela
