Abstract

Several European studies have suggested a higher prevalence of celiac disease (CD) among infertile women (4% to 8%) compared with the general population (<1%). We screened a cohort of women with unexplained infertility in Northern California for the serum markers of CD, tissue transglutaminase and endomysium antibodies (EMA). Given that only one woman out of 121 (0.8%) screened positive for CD, it appears that CD is about as prevalent in this cohort of infertile women as in the general U.S. population (<1%).
