It might be related to just overall nutrition, which is of course affected by your celiacs. I've always had a ridiculously high drive which gets worse when I exercise (so this thread is a little scary) but my boyfriend was naturally malnourished due to other factors and once he got that straightened out he came up more to my level. So it's logical that going gluten-free will help.

Maybe it has nothing to do with gluten? Have you told your doctor about this? Had testosterone tested? A side effect of a medication for other medical issue? Maybe google this and find some reputable sites like Mayo clinic and see what they say.

I noticed a massive improvement in my sex drive after going 100% gluten free - it took around 5 weeks before I began to notice a difference.   It's probably important to point out that I was and still am very strict with my gluten-free regimen so I am guessing this is why I noticed such an improvement.  My own research tells me that the reason for the improvement is that the hardening in my arteries has reversed significantly. Apparently, repeated consumption of wheat accelerates glycation which contributes to artery hardening.  

 

I would recommend for any guy who with erectile disfunction and low libido to consider going 100% gluten free as a 6 week trial - just to test out the results.

 

Another benefit to going gluten free is my pot belly is gone, gone, gone - after all these years my stomach is now flat!
