Is there a relationship between celiac disease and anembryonic pregnancy?

By Júlia Roig Navarro M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 05/10/2022

A direct relationship has been demonstrated between spontaneous abortions and celiac disease, but not with anembryonic pregnancy, also known as hollow egg or pregnancy without embryo.

It is estimated that 80% of anembryonic pregnancies are due to chromosomal alterations or incorrect division of the embryo.

On the other hand, it has been shown that untreated celiac disease can cause problems in pregnancy. It increases the risk of miscarriage, low birth weight, intrauterine growth restriction and premature delivery.

Therefore, it is extremely important to follow a strict gluten-free diet once the diagnosis is made.
