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:

  • Molteni N, Bardella MT, Bianchi PA. Obstetric and gynecological problems in women with untreated celiac sprue. J Clin Gastroenterol 1990; 12: 37-9.

  • 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.
