Mom With Celiac Linked To Hypospadias In Child?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son was recently diagnosed with hypospadias (a birth defect of the penis). I was pregnant with him prior to my celiac diagnosis, thus I was not gluten free during the pregnancy. A friend who is a neonatal nurse told me she had heard there was a possible link between a mother with celiac disease and hypospadias in the child. I tried googling it for more information but I couldn't find anything. Has anyone heard of this before?

I looked on PubMed and found one article from 1969 from Romania so I don't think there is any known connection.

Thank you for looking that up for me.
