FERTILITY AND GLUTEN, THE REAL SCOOP

If you've been reading my blogs for a while, you know that I have written about gluten intolerance as a cause of infertility and possibly miscarriage.  So if you have been tested and are allergic to gluten, by all means eat a gluten free diet.  But what about the rest of us?  Is gluten really that bad?  It's amazing how many web searches will basically condemn gluten and lead us to believe that it should be banished from the earth.  Gluten can offer some benefits and it is actually VERY high in protein
What is the scientific research on gluten and should we all be avoiding it?

This interesting article in Medical News Today quoted a study from 2013 which said:

  "We found no evidence of specific or dose-dependent effects of gluten in patients with NCGS," the team concluded. In fact, the researchers found the bloating previously identified may be attributable to consumption of carbohydrates called FODMAPs (fermentable, oligo-, di-, monosaccharides, and polyols)" 

The article went on to say:

Lisa Cimperman, a clinical dietitian at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, OH, and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, added: "Gluten is neither essential nor detrimental to one's health or quality of diet." 

Gluten has been 'popularized as a dietary villain'

As such, some nutritionists believe following a gluten-free diet without having received a diagnosis of

celiac disease does not offer health benefits, but the unwarranted praise for the diet makes us believe it does. Cimperman told us:

"There are no beneficial health effects to a gluten-free diet. Wheat and gluten have recently become popularized as dietary villains by a number of books and media outlets.
Unfortunately, talk show hosts and celebrities are able to amplify such messages while having little to no health or nutrition credentials. There is no research to support gluten-free diets for anyone other than those affected by celiac disease."
In fact, some experts claim following a gluten-free diet in the absence of celiac disease may actually be detrimental to health, as it can lack the nutrients needed to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. According to the Mayo Clinic, a gluten-free diet may lead to lower levels of iron, calcium, fiber, folate, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.

100 YEAR OLD FERTILITY PROCEDURE STILL WORKS!

I have read on numerous occasions that having the HSG (hysterosalpingogram) procedure can not only help your doctor find out if your tubes are open, but the procedure itself may actually open your tubes!  This article talks about how the HSG in different forms has been around for 100 years and there is a measurable success rate in helping women conceive.  Read more:

Results show clear benefits of oil-based solution
Almost 40% of infertile women in the oil group and 29% of infertile women in the water group achieved successful pregnancies within six months of the technique being performed.
The oil-based product used in the study was Lipiodol® Ultra-Fluid, an iodised solution of fatty acids from poppy seeds. This product is currently available in 47 countries around the world.
"The rates of successful pregnancy were significantly higher in the oil-based group, and after only one treatment. This is an important outcome for women who would have had no other course of action other than to seek IVF treatment. It offers new hope to infertile couples," Professor Mol says.
The big question: why?
"It was long believed that testing a woman's fallopian tubes could have fertility benefits through

'flushing out' the kind of debris that hinders fertility. The reality is, we still don't really understand why there is a benefit, only that there is a benefit from this technique, in particular for women who don't present with any other treatable fertility symptoms," Professor Mol says.

BIRTH DEFECTS CAUSED BY UTI'S AND STD'S

If you are trying to conceive, you should be checked for STD's and Urinary Tract Infections. That's a little scary because these infections (especially UTI's) can be quite common.

See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on having a healthy pregnancy and enhancing fertility over 40 

According to the article below, these infections might put a woman's baby at risk for birth defects. Some of these infections go undiagnosed, so it's important to check before you get pregnant. Read more:

Women with both an STD and urinary tract infection during early pregnancy are four times more likely to have babies with gastroschisis, a severe birth defect in which infants are born with their intestines and other internal organs outside the abdomen, say University of Utah researchers in the

British Medical Journal...

The study established that women who reported having both an STD and UTI immediately before or early in pregnancy were four times more likely to have a child with gastroschisis. Although the association between having both an STD and UTI and the risk for gastroschisis needs more study, it's possible the link might be even stronger than the study suggests, according to Feldkamp, as STDs and UTIs often go undiagnosed. "One of the problems, especially with Chlamydia, is these infections are subclinical [unreported] because the woman doesn't know she has it," Feldkamp said. "We probably have many cases that go undiagnosed."

CARNITINE, GREAT FOR SPERM

 Carnitine Supplements for Sperm

If you've never heard of Carnitine, you're probably not alone.  It can be found in just about every cell in your body.  Usually the liver and kidneys produce enough Carnitine, however some people don't make enough.

See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for my entire series on foods for fertility and pregnancy 

 Animal products like meat, fish, poultry, and milk are the best sources. In general, the redder the meat, the higher its carnitine content. Dairy products contain carnitine primarily in the whey (NIH)
Carnitine is a supplement which is available over-the-counter. I've heard before that it can help with sperm motility. This study done specifically on Carnitine seems to confirm its usefulness. Read more:

Testing Carnitine
The study was small; only 30 men participated. Their average age was 34. All had sought help for fertility problems. The men were diagnosed with decreased sperm motility.

For three months, the men took a placebo. Then they took 2 grams of L-carnitine supplements orally every day for three months. After that, the men didn't take anything for another three months.

Semen samples were taken four times: at the study's start, after taking the placebo for three months, after taking carnitine for three months, and three months after treatment ended.

Temporary Improvement
Sperm motility improved while the men took the carnitine supplements. The placebo didn't help at all.

The benefit's extent varied depending on the men's condition. The key may lie in their mitochondria, the main power source for cells.

Some participants' sperm had mitochondria that weren't working properly. Their sperm motility improved with carnitine, but their results didn't match those with normal mitochondria.

TTC ON INDEPENDENCE DAY....THERE'S NO FIREWORKS!

Trying To Conceive and Independence Day

Remember those old re-runs of a program called "Love American Style" (or in my case you saw them the first time around)?
Fireworks represented the love and infatuation associated with your relationship and/or marriage. Well, no matter how good your relationship is, when you're trying to conceive, every aspect of your life revolves around ovulation. Intercourse can become a total chore and no, there are absolutely no fireworks. I remember a few years on independence day, I was ovulating and we could hear our neighbors shooting off firecrakers--there we were trying to "get the job done". UGGGGHHHH...not pleasant memories at all.

Independence day is another one of those family oriented holidays. All you see around you are
families packing up the car to go watch fireworks displays, kid-oriented events, BBQ's etc. It's another holiday where you stick out like a sore thumb. I recall going to a function with my husband's sister and their kids. We met a few of their friends and then the bomb dropped. One of their friends (who was there with his four kids) says to me..."I'll bet you guys have a bunch of kids right?" I was so taken off guard...he immediately sensed me squirming as I said sheepishly..."Uh no, we don't have any". End of conversation.
After that, we decided to have our own way of enjoying the holiday. We stayed away from BBQ's and had a nice dinner out. Hey, whatever works. I'm not saying you shouldn't join in (because we did that too), but you should do whatever helps you deal with the situation at the time.

So, whatever you do this holiday, please enjoy it safely and don't be afraid to go out and have some fun - even if it's not in the traditional way.
