Does Pregnancy Induce Celiac Symptoms? Researchers Are Trying to Find Out

A study team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center led by Dr. Amelie Therrien is conducting a study that aims to observe, understand and determine the frequency of celiac-related symptoms and the impact on the quality of life in patients living with celiac disease during their pregnancy and the postpartum period.

You are invited to participate in this study if you are a woman with an established celiac disease diagnosis who has been following a gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. We are enrolling some women with celiac disease who are pregnant and some women who are not currently pregnant. Women who are currently pregnant and don’t have a celiac disease diagnosis may also be eligible for the study.

If you choose to participate in the study, you will be asked to complete a survey and provide stool samples at specific time points. For more information, please contact cdpreg@bidmc.harvard.edu
