Gluten Ataxia Survey

I just got this email. Some of my family suffer from ataxia, so I'm including it here.

Ever feel groggy or forgetful after gluten exposure? Help doctors unlock this neurological mystery.

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.

Please take a moment to answer this brief survey. The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.
