What happens, at least it did to me 5 years ago, is that celiac destroys the testosterone and other hormones in the body. If you get a testosterone injection or 2 followed by transdermal patches for a few weeks, it usually brings the level up to where it should be.

It seems but I've not found documentation that this happens every 2 to 3 years even on the gluten-free diet and you have to do it again. I'm also not sure how age affects celiacs and

hormone levels. It is a good idea to make sure they check your levels though. There is a big difference.

How old are you? Have you actually had your testosterone level checked?

There are many factors that can contribute to loss of libido that have nothing to do with Celiac disease. Some of them are not even physiological, such as depression.

After having been gluten free for some months in the first year after my celiac disease diagnosis I had my testosterone level checked because of bone density loss. It was at the high end of normal. I have not heard or read of their being a connection between celiac disease and low testosterone.

DH had his testosterone level checked at this last yearly physical. I'm keep track of his libido levels myself. He's been gluten free 4 weeks. Will make a report after a few months.

What the doctor told me was that with celic you can loose testosterone other hormones as well as nutrients. The injection and patch made a big difference 5 years ago. It can't hurt to have levels checked. Guess this just shows how celiac affects us all differently.

We had two children while I was undiagnosed. And no problems with conception.

In retrospect after 2 divorces, legal expenses, family court, 60/40 property divisions, child support and kids that haven't communicated for over a decade, perhaps impotence would have been a blessing. After all (and whether you believe it or not), there really is more to life than.... Plus, it would help clean up the gene pool.

There's some research discussing celiac and testosterone levels. Age and other factors can influence the ability of the sex hormone
