Celiac disease often results in multiple nutritional deficiencies, which in turn, can lead to infertility. Celiac disease has been linked to recurrent miscarriage, pregnancy complication and infertility. A 2010 study found that 5 to 10% of women with a history of recurrent miscarriage, stillbirth, intrauterine growth restriction and infertility were seropositive for transglutaminase IgA compared to 1% of the control group .
Celiac disease is an auto-immune disease. Those suffering from the condition, have inflammatory responses to gluten which damage the delicate tissues lining the small intestine. A high proportion of nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine. However, in people with celiac disease absorption is heavily reduced. Even after you stop eating gluten it can take several years for the gut lining to heal sufficiently for you to absorb nutrients normally, and this is if you remove all other inflammatory foods that irritate the gut lining, and if you take a specific gut healing nutritional supplemental protocol.
