I really want to have my first child with my girlfriend, but she has diabetes and Celiac. I was wondering if anyone here was in the same situation and has had a health baby and mother. I really need to know the risks to her.

Any info or advice would help

thanks. :D

as long as she is careful about her diet, staying gluten free and watching her sugar, AND getting regular check ups by her Dr., then she should have a very good chance of having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. She should talk with her Dr.s about this first and get their input, and I would think that they would give her the "go ahead" unless there are other complications.

People with celiac and diabetes have healthy children all the time. As long as she adheres to her diet then she should be fine. :D

Diabetes can be very serious during pregnancy so make sure you have a good doctor and they watch her closely. But I agree with the others she can have a healthy baby.

I do NOT want to scare you or anything like that..but according to one list of symptoms I pulled off of one site spontaneous abortions is one of the listed symptoms and my niece has had 7 of them..

Take into consideration that the celiac disease gene is VERY dominant in my family. Most of us didn't find out until recently...

the spontaneous abortions (or miscarriage) is really ONLY likely to happen if the celiac person is NOT adhering to the diet. I had two of them BEFORE I was diagnosed. I was on a gluten-free diet (initial self dx) when I conceived my daughter and stayed on it through the first trimester. It was only after the dangerous first trimester that I let my doctor talk me out of the diet. It took until my daughter was 3 for me to get an accurate dx.

Again. If she sticks to her diet AND her Dr.s are monitoring her closely, (with the diabetes) then she should have a normal pregnancy.

While the chance of a first degree relative of hers (say, her child) having celiac is 1 in 22 (according to Dr. Fasano's study last year), if she keeps her blood sugar in check and maintains a healthy gluten-free diet, she, and any potential child, should be fine. Of course, she may be considered in the "high-risk" category, and need closer physician monitoring, and should probably talk to her doctors before getting pregnant so she's prepared, medically, but those two conditions alone (if controlled) shouldn't stop her from having kids.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
