Impotency and Celiac Disease
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
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
- Sher KS, Jayanthi V, Probert CS, Stewart CR, Mayberry JF. Infertility, obstetric and gynaecological problems in celiac sprue. Dig Dis 1994; 12:186-90.
- McCann JP, Nicholls DP, Verzin JA. Adult celiac disease presenting with infertility. Ulster Med J 1988; 57: 88-9.
- 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.
