Gluten and infertility

We’re often told that there are links between gluten-intolerance and infertility, but a new study looking at a large number of women suggests that actually those who have been diagnosed with coeliac disease (a condition where sufferers have a reaction to gluten) are no more likely to have a fertility problem than anyone else. There was one odd anomaly in the findings though as in the group of women who were diagnosed with coeliac disease between the ages of 25 and 29, there was actually a higher number of women who had clinically reported fertility problems.

I’m not sure I can see any logical reason why this should be – but if you’re interested in knowing more the study was published in the Journal Gastroenterology – and you can find details here
