kimmiekp:Seriously??? That's amazing... I'm willing to stand on my head, rub my tummy and hold my tongue while saying "I was born on a pirate ship" if someone tells me that it is successful!!!! :)
So does the gluten free diet work for everyone or just people with that disease?
Here! Here! We've been looking into adoption but the costs are staggering. I'll dance naked around a cauldron filled with some mystery potion with eye of newt at this point.
From what I've read, it looks like for this information to apply to you, you would need to have wheat/gluten intolerance/sensitivities or have full-blown celiac disease. You can find the symptoms online and strangely enough, miscarriage is one of them. I believe the testing for Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease is either a blood test or an elimination diet.
The above article states this:
World Journal of Gastroenterology 2003 stated: ?both miscarriage frequency and babies? low birth weight would normalize in response to a gluten free diet.?
?Untreated celiac disease in women resulted in an 8.9-fold increase in the relative risk of pregnancy miscarriage and in a 30% reduction of the baby?s birth weight.?
This article states:
I didn't see the episode of The View, but after recently being dx with Endo, I did a little google research...Apparently, there is a connection between endo and gluten. Patients that went on a gluten free saw their pain subside.
Here's the link

My acupuncturist was heavy into this logic too. Apparently gluten is inflammatory and if you are someone sensitive to such inflammation, going gluten-free helps. Note this is a serious commitment (I can attest having gone GF for 7+ months) - no regular bread, pasta, baked goods, pizza, etc. Gluten is in all kinds of things you wouldn't suspect, including many salad dressings and soy sauce, for example. It can also take weeks or months for gluten to clear from your system and if you cheat it defeats all of your prior hard work. So, worth looking into if you have endo or suspect celiac, but bear in mind going GF is no small task.
