Impotency and Celiac Disease

Hyperprolactinaemia is seen in 25% of celiac patients, which causes impotence and loss of libido. This quote was taken from an abstract at the following cite: Dig Dis, 12(3):186-190 1994, May-Jun. The title of the article is Infertility, Obstetric and Gynaecological Problems in Celiac Sprue. Here are some more references:

  • Molteni N, Bardella MT, Bianchi PA. Obstetric and gynecological problems in women with untreated celiac sprue. J Clin Gastroenterol 1990; 12: 37-9.
  • Sher KS, Mayberry JF. Female fertility, obstetric and gynaecological history in celiac disease. A case
    control study. Digestion 1994; 55: 243-6.
  • Sher KS, Jayanthi V, Probert CS, Stewart CR, Mayberry JF. Infertility, obstetric and gynaecological problems in celiac sprue. Dig Dis 1994; 12:186-90.

  • Ferguson R, Holmes GKT, Cooke WT. Celiac disease, fertility and pregnancy. Scand J Gastroenterol 1982; 17: 65-8.
  • The good news is that the overwhelming opinion was that adherence to a strict gluten free diet should and would restore fertility if the infertility was a result of celiac disease.

Absolutely zero mention about the effects of Celiac on WOMEN'S infertility.

I was looking for information regarding C.D./gluten intolerance and male sexual health... this article is too short, non-informative and all your reference articles lead back to female issues? Bleh.
