Scientific Study: Celiac disease is not a risk factor for fertility in men
- More than 38,000 Swedish men with and without presence of celiac disease were compared in terms of the number of children they produced.
- Results demonstrated there were no differences in the rate of offspring produced by men with celiac disease compared to those without.
- The authors concluded, “This study found a normal fertility in men with diagnosed CD.”
These results suggest that having celiac disease does not affect sperm quality or fertility in men.
