Today’s podcast is about how celiac disease may affect pregnancy for women. Our guest is the Dr. Louise Grode from the Department of Medicine at Horsens Regional Hospital in Denmark who is the lead author on a new study published in the journal Human Reproduction. The study team looked at the chance and timing of pregnancy as well as potential complications including live and stillbirths, molar and ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages, and found an increased risk of stillbirths and miscarriages in women with undiagnosed celiac disease. We are so excited to have Dr. Grode join us to talk about this important research and how women with celiac disease can plan to have successful pregnancies.
Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
