Is it possible that I have celiac disease during pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).

Yes, celiac disease is not really caused by pregnancy, but the woman may not have had any symptoms before pregnancy and now, due to hormonal changes, it starts to trigger the typical gastrointestinal manifestations.

In this case, it is recommended to undergo diagnostic tests for celiac disease and, if positive, to start the appropriate treatment in order to avoid complications during pregnancy.
