In Topic: Gluten Intolerance Post Partum, Now Concerned With Getting Pregnant

03 July 2013 - 05:17 PM

Any others with this experience?  I'm very interested.  I'm just scared of being super sick should I get pregnant again...  So I'd love to hear other's experiences of those that had gluten intolerance onset postpartum and how it went with being gluten free on any subsequent pregnancies.

I know this is from a long time ago, but thought I'd mention anyhow. We've used Dr Kenneth Welker. He's located at Oregon Optimal Health which is in the office building across the street from Red Robin.

Chex paints, One more thing...did you have your thyroid checked out? Gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease often go hand in hand with thyroid problems. Thyroid gland function can be accepted by pregnancy and being postpartum. I have had symptoms of overactive thyroid after delivering a baby.

Yes, I was thoroughly tested by two different doctors. Both said my thyroid is just fine.

I think that I had gluten sensitivity since childhood, but I wasn't diagnosed with Celiac Disease until I was postpartum with my 3rd child. My body went totally haywire and I was rather sick in the months leading up to diagnosis and going off of gluten. I miscarried a year later in 2011, and then got pregnant again and delivered a healthy, full term daughter in 2012 (about 24 months post-diagnosis). I was strictly gluten-free throughout the pregnancy, and outside of one "glutening" I felt healthy and strong. My postpartum experience was much better than with my third child! Outside of being sleep-deprived from nursing, I felt well and continue to feel well.
BTW, I have had a lot of friends and professional colleagues get pregnant and have babies in their late 30s and early 40s.
Whatever comes, I wish you the best!

Awe, thanks! That does make me feel better. I want to believe that my post partum reactions were due to gluten intolerance onset. But this nagging feeling of what if it was a hormone imbalance keeps me hesitant. I sure don't want to be sick like that again! I was practically helpless with 3 kids and an infant.
