Pregnant and Worried about Gluten-Free Nutrition

November 01, 2011

Question:

I am pregnant and worried that my gluten-free diet might be causing issues for me. Are there any resources for pregnant celiacs to ensure all dietary needs are met?

From,

Meghan

Answer:

Hi Meghan. I’m glad to see you are paying attention to your gluten-free diet while pregnant. Yes, NFCA has great information about the gluten-free diet and proper nutrition before and during pregnancy. See: Maximizing Nutrition for Pregnancy.

The article also includes a list of references to additional sources of information about important nutrition issues during pregnancy, including: common vitamin deficiencies; the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommendations for pregnant and nursing women; mercury levels in fish and shellfish; and much more.

Thank you for your question and be well,

Rachel Begun, MS, RD
