Connection between Celiac Disease, PCOS, and Hormone Health

Understanding Celiac Disease and PCOS

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten consumption, causing damage to the small intestine. PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a hormonal disorder characterized by irregular periods, cystic ovaries, and hormonal imbalances. While seemingly unrelated, research suggests a significant association between the two conditions.

The Importance of Comprehensive Testing

Testing for both celiac disease and PCOS is paramount, as they can profoundly impact hormone health and fertility. Accurate diagnosis allows for targeted interventions to manage symptoms and optimize health outcomes. At NMD Wellness of Scottsdale, our naturopathic doctors utilize advanced testing methods to provide precise diagnoses and personalized treatment plans.Whether you are using natural therapies or conventional medications for these conditions, getting a proper diagnose can improve the success of your treatment ten-fold.

Diagnosing Celiac Disease: Beyond the Biopsy

Traditionally, the gold standard for celiac disease diagnosis has been an intestinal biopsy. However, advancements in diagnostic testing now offer non-invasive alternatives, including stool and blood tests. It's essential to consume gluten-containing foods leading up to testing to ensure accurate results.If you are already on a gluten-free diet, testing for celiac will be inaccurate. 

Navigating PCOS Diagnosis and Management

Diagnosing PCOS involves assessing symptoms, hormonal levels, and imaging studies to evaluate ovarian morphology. While there is no cure for PCOS, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and targeted therapies can help manage symptoms and improve fertility outcomes.
