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:

  • 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.

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.

Welcome! I am so sorry that you are dealing with this. With all your testing was active celiac disease ruled out? Did they check for UC or Crohn's? Flies? I am on the West Coast. The wind is usually too steady for any insect to hang around at the beach, but I recall getting attacked by...

Peppermint tea can help with a gassy stomach. Some people take activated charcoal tablets. There's also aspirin and wine to consider. Pepto can help (it has aspirin in it), and may soothe the the gut irritation. But it is not a long lasting affect, take it every couple hours.
