Could Your Fertility Problems Be Related to Diet? By Sonja Kristiansen, MD on May 20, 2010

May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, so it's a good time to put the word out about how this rather invisible disease might impact a woman's fertility.

The Celiac Disease Foundation has a list of symptoms that could be considered if you're wondering.

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness offers excellent primer info on the possible connections between the disease and infertility.

Generally, my fertility-focused advice to people diagnosed with celiac disease would include the recommended dietary changes plus any additional fertility treatments, depending on other factors like the woman's age.
