Increased Rates of Pregnancy Complications in Women with Celiac Disease

By Kanaaz Pereira, Connect Moderator, @kanaazpereira

Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist and celiac disease expert Joseph Murray, M.D., discusses one of the largest women's health studies, published in the Annals of Gastroenterology that examines the risk of pregnancy complications in women with untreated celiac disease.

Although celiac disease is associated with intestinal disorder, it is important to note that that it can impact the reproductive health of women outside the digestive system. The study associated celiac disease with significant increases in spontaneous abortion, premature delivery, and later age of menarche.
