But has anyone else noticed their child easily distracted or not paying attention in school? My son is 12 and normally is an A/B student, but just recently started to not be as attentive as usual and his grades are slipping. His teachers are also noticing that although he is looking at them and appear to be listening, he isn't retaining what is being taught. Even at home I see him easily distracted while doing chores. He has always been this way (he doesn't have ADD/ADHD but we are going to have him retested) so I'm just wondering what could be going on. I'm sure that if blood sugars are fluctuating this can certainly affect thinking and attention. Just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same issue.
