Mothers with celiac disease showed no major increased risk for pregnancy complications, according to new research data

Celiac disease in pregnant women is not associated with a significantly greater risk for pregnancy complications or adverse birth outcomes, according to research from the United Kingdom and Sweden.

“The undiagnosed CD group was not at increased risk for pregnancy complications, but there was a 1% absolute excess risk for preterm birth (aOR=1.24; 95% CI, 0.82-1.87) and low birth weight (aOR=1.36; 95%, 0.83-2.24).

“Most women with CD diagnosed either before or after pregnancy will have a pregnancy and delivery that is not complicated by an adverse event,” the researchers concluded. “Our findings do suggest that among women already diagnosed with CD, there may be a small increase in the risk of a pregnancy being complicated by a postpartum hemorrhage, but the reasons for this are not entirely clear.”
