Celiac Disease And Miscarriage
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been doing some research on this topic and wonder if anyone has any input on the subject.

 

I started my gluten-free diet two days before my official diagnosis of celiac disease. That was January, 20. What I didn't know is that I was almost four weeks pregnant at the time. I've stuck to the gluten-free diet very well. I'm still trying to discern my syptoms as to if I have been cross contaiminated and I believe my first clue was reflux but with pregnancy, it was hard to determine which was which.

 

Sadly, I lost my twins this week. The doctors think it was a fluke and something went wrong in the dividing process in the very early days. I'm trying to figure out was this due to untreated celiac disease and then only knowing to start treatment after becoming pregnant. :(

Welcome Jamer.

 

I am so very sorry for your loss.  What I can tell you is many with undiagosed Celiac Disease have lost all their children and my wish along with every expectation is you will have many healthy children in the future -- not that this helps right now.

 

Hang in there.

I had three miscarriages but still gave birth to two healthy children.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.  (hug)

 

i have heard that having untreated celiac disease can possibly cause miscarriages. I wouldn't be surprised if the withdrawl and body changes that one would experience in the first few weeks could throw a mother's body into enough of a tailspin to make pregnancy difficult.  Another problem could be that those with celiac disease may also have other autoimmune disorders that make a pg difficult; thyroiditis is oneAI that is quite common and often affects fertility too. It might be a good idea to have yourself checked for anyother health issues you might have (and hypothyroidism as it mimics many of the celiac disease symptoms.

 

I have heard (but I can't remember where) that those with treated celiac disease have their fertility improve. There is a chance that your miscarriage was unrelated to celiac (most untreated celiacs are able to have children).  I wish you the best with your gluten-free diet and with the expansion of your family.

I am so so sorry for your loss.

I had early miscarriages, and 2 healthy kids.

I did a lot of research, and miscarriage is much.more common than people think. It may or may not be related to the celiac, but it is extremely unlikely you could have done anything differently.

Once diagnosed and on the gluten-free diet pregnancy outcomes are virtually the same as for non celiacs.

Take time and get support if you need it.

Very best wishes for the future, and for each day.

I had one miscarriage and the safe birth of 5 children over about 10 years when I had untreated celiac.  Since then, I didn't conceive and my last biological child was born in 1997.  My age is 49.

    • MK4800 I had it on a trial/rental for a bit trying to purchase one now. Things pretty good, and the cheapest on the market. If you order from the factory it cost $995 ($650+$345 s&H) I started a fund raiser from my bakery for it.   As for retail if you order on Amazon or Ebay your looking to pay $1100-1400 for it.    If your really interested I can give the sales rep your email and she can contact you about getting one. https://www.mkkchina.com/product/ice-cream-making-machine/ My plans when I get my own is to use it for catering, markets, and events. I found it on rental from a company out of Houston and tried it. Then looked into purchasing one.  
    • Ennis, Egg yolks are what make custard based ice creams. But you have me thinking. I make a frozen peanut butter pie where I make a Swiss butter cream frosting with added peanut butter. It tastes amazing. For my kids with lactose issues, butter isn't a problem (just fresh milks and cheeses), so I add butter to the whipped cooked egg whites then room temperature natural peanut butter. So I think that heating the honey and whites in a double boiler, then whipping and adding any solid fat would work. Then freeze (no need to churn because the whites and fat provide you with structure).   For Father's Day I made a chocolate brownie (cashew butter base) in a spring form pan, scooped out the center of the brownie leaving just a shell, added the peanut butter filling described above and topped with reserved brownie bits, froze that, then added a chocolate avocado ice cream and topped with chopped homemade dark paleo chocolate chunks...It was terrific! What industrial ice cream maker do you use?  I'm tired of making small batches of ice cream. 
    • Hello and welcome to the forum! i don't have a solution for you but I can tell you I had the same thing happen. After going gluten-free I was so extremely sensitive and the issue I had was the dh. I think I've read you can have flare ups even without gluten for quite a while. I certainly did! How long have you been gluten-free? I had flare ups and itching when I would even have foods that were supposedly less than or equal to 20 ppm. This went on for maybe a year? Something extremely ridiculous like that. Then one day my dh turned purpley and flattened out. Then one day it was a bit more skin colored and disappeared. Never had the problem since. good luck with it. I'm sure some others will chime in with their advice and great knowledge as well. You found a great place to be! It's my safe haven.
    • Victoria - Thanks for reply, man last night I was so itchy, and on a spot that hadn't been itchy for months! I'll keep an eye on gluten-free foods too

      artistsl - My hand was itchy yesterday and I ended up putting some off-brand neosporin on and it did help, so I'm glad we both had the same idea haha. Also I can't believe I forgot about hand soap! I've checked my shower bar soap (Dove) but for some reason I completely forgot to check the hand soaps here and at work, thanks! Oh and I don't need to see the pictures, I think I'm getting a better handle on what my body is doing now, but thanks! I've also stopped taking ibuprofin at night as a 'test' and I was itchy as hell like directly at midnight, but that might have been a coincidence so I'll keep going without that, and once a week I would put on that steroid cream I got from the dermatologist to help the really bad itching but I'm stopping that too.

      Thanks again everyone, man am I glad this forum exists!
