I thought some of you may find this interesting. I'm not sure if you will or not, but I thought it was something worth discussion.
Read this same thing in a book this morning called "Dangerous Grains" and was compelled to look it up and see if I could find anything
Gluten grains can cause infertility and miscarriage(stated in the book I'm reading and infertility mentioned in this article). In this article it states 50% of people have a gluten sensitivity(non-celiac). While I'm not sure if it is really that common or not, you can have a gluten sensitivity without any symptoms whatsoever. I think anyone who has had multiple miscarriages in the past may benefit from this diet...VERY interesting...I am trying to find more information on the matter. Since I have found I have a gluten sensitivity and think it is highly likely that my two early miscarriages were caused by this(my symptoms have mostly gone since going gluten free). I think the issue needs more awareness.. The book I am reading right now is called "Dangerous Grains".
Thank you for sharing. I am trying to find the article I read not long ago on how food intolerances and allergies can impact the entire body, not just the digestive tract.
The basic, very unscientific premise is that proteins are allowed to pass through the walls of the digestive system. Gluten is particulary 'sticky' (which is what gives bread it's springy texture) The immune system identifies the gluten as an enemy and will attack it, often attacking the organ that the gluten is "attached to" for lack of a better word. In children, this response happens in parts of the brain resulting in behavoir issues. I have seen first hand how a gluten free diet can improve an autistic boys behavious.
This is one of the theories on why you see clusters of autoimmune diseases with Celiac. It is very common for a person to have Type I diabetes, and Hashimoto along with Celiac.
I read in the TTC with health & MC group that you are recently diagnosed. I have been gluten free for over 3 years, so if you need any help at all - PM. Especially if you need recipes or old recipes modified. Cooking and baking are one of my passions
One theory on the recurrent miscarriages and gluten intolerance is that your body cannot absorb vitamins and minerals as a result of the damage, which results in the birth defects and miscarriage.
