Celiac Disease and Women’s Health
Celiac Disease and Women’s Health: A Guide to Understanding
Celiac disease is commonly associated with gastrointestinal issues, but it can also impact the reproductive system, resulting in complications like infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths and other negative pregnancy outcomes.
The obstetric and gynecologic community can help improve the celiac disease diagnosis rate, helping women achieve better health for themselves, as well as their future children.
Beyond Celiac encourages women’s health practitioners to educate themselves and their patients about celiac disease and proper treatment through the gluten-free diet.
