Is there a link between infertility and celiac disease? 


There is evidence suggesting women with celiac disease may have a slightly higher risk for infertility and miscarriage.  Celiac disease has also been linked to premature and low-birth-weight babies.  Some health experts recommend screening for celiac disease in couples experiencing unexplained fertility, but not all are on board yet.

However, most experts agree that reproductive physicians should be aware of the symptoms of celiac disease and consider the option of screening for those with unexplained infertility. The National Foundation for Celiac Disease has a page dedicated to the connection between infertility and celiac disease, which shares the research done in this area, as well as resources for celiac disease and women's health.

Be well,
