Celiac disease is frequent reason for unexplained infertility

All patients found to have celiac disease in this sample of 188 infertile women conceived within a year of diagnosis/diet change.

A recent study by researchers at Columbia University demonstrated increased rates of celiac disease in women who present with unexplained infertility.

Published in the May-June 2011 issue of The Journal of Reproductive Medicine, the study evaluated 191 female patients presenting with infertility. (See “Increased prevalence of celiac disease in patients with unexplained infertility in the United States,”  by Choi JM, et al.)

Each participant underwent serologic screening for celiac disease as well as routine infertility testing.

The 4 patients who had positive serum test results were advised to seek evaluation with a gastroenterologist. All 4 patients were confirmed to have celiac disease. They then underwent nutritional counseling to change over to a gluten-free diet.

Among the 188 patients who completed testing, the prevalence of undiagnosed celiac disease was 2.1%.

While this rate was not significantly higher than the expected 1.3%, the diagnosis of celiac disease in the women with "unexplained" infertility was much higher – 3 of 51 women, or 5.9%.

Interestingly, all 4 patients found to have celiac disease conceived within a year of diagnosis. Though the study numbers are small, the findings suggest that, at least for some women with infertility, dietary measures may help bolster fertility.

“Diagnosing celiac disease in an infertile woman would be particularly beneficial if the low-cost (and low-risk) therapy of pursuing a gluten-free diet could improve chances for conception,” says lead author Janet Choi, MD , a reproductive endocrinologist at the Center for Women’s Reproductive Care at Columbia University in New York City.

And these results should be added to the increasing body of knowledge concerning the impact of undiagnosed celiac disease on women’s reproductive health, adds co-author Dr. Peter Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center.
