My youngest daughter is being tested for celiacs disease, just seeing if any other mums that have a child that has celiacs disease had gestational diabetes while pregnant with that child? 


Any help or advice is warmly welcome 

thank you ? 

I had a quick google out of curiosity and found this study:



We identified 650 children with celiac disease and 107,828 controls in the MoBa database. We found no association between birth weight or height with celiac disease (born small for gestational age was not associated). Celiac disease was not associated with mode of delivery (cesarean section, model 1: OR, 0.84; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.65-1.09, and model 2: OR, 0.83; 95% CI, 0.63-1.09). Maternal celiac disease, adjusted for age and sex of the children (OR, 12.45; 95% CI, 8.29-18.71) and type 1 diabetes (model 1: OR, 2.58; 95% CI, 1.19-5.53, and model 2: OR, 2.61; 95% CI, 1.14-5.98) were associated with development of celiac disease in children, whereas maternal type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes were not


It looks like the gestational diabetes isn't a factor but maybe you should consider celiac screening for yourself if you've not already done so?
