Ask the Doc: Why does celiac disease cause infertility?
Posted By Alison On May 5, 2010 @ In Ask the Doc | No Comments
Q. In one of your previous responses you mention that polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and celiac are related. I was diagnosed with PCOS for over 20 years and treated with BCPs and then Metformin. Meanwhile I’d suffered terrible bloating, chronically, for years, encompassing both lower and upper abdomen. I began to learn gluten may cause the bloating and PCOS symptoms, so I went off gluten and the meds simultaneously (without any clinical testing). I have had periods like clockwork since, and the bloating is greatly improved.
My questions are:
Thank you for any time you may find to address my questions. Unfortunately there appears
to be scant clinically sound information or studies concerning this.
A. To answer your questions:
Hope this helps.
Health and happiness,
Have a question for the doc?
