Katie Fox wrote this winter about an experience of her daughter, Ruth, age 8. Getting too cold seemed to make Ruth listless and tired. The doctor thought maybe her leucine levels were plenty low during the previous summer and fall, depleting her protein. Then the cold made her muscles contract causing her to stagger and feel weak.
After they increased her formula and added more leucine, she did better the rest of the winter. Has anyone had a similar experience?
