Infertility patients in general and those with celiac disease may be able to breathe a sigh of relief
Celiac disease (CD) is a disorder characterized by an autoimmune reaction triggered by sensitivity to gluten, the protein component of wheat, barley, and rye. Celiac disease is present in approximately 1%–2% of the general population, and existing studies have postulated a potential effect on duration of reproductive years, fertility, and pregnancy outcomes. There have been multiple meta-analyses of cohort studies and case–control studies that attempt to elucidate the association between reproductive disorders and incidence of CD (1, 2); these studies found associations between unexplained infertility, recurrent miscarriage, or intrauterine growth restriction and risk of CD.
