A year has passed since Celiac Disease Foundation launched its patient registry, iCureCeliac®. Since our launch, 2,300 participants have contributed their medical information and experiences living with celiac disease and non-celiac wheat/gluten sensitivity. This information will help researchers to better understand, develop treatments for, and ultimately cure celiac disease.

Based on our recent data analysis of iCureCeliac®, here are some interesting findings our participants reported about sexual activity while living with celiac disease:

  • 70% reported that fatigue or lack of energy has affected their satisfaction with their sex life
  • 56% reported that gastrointestinal symptoms have affected their satisfaction with their sex life
  • 50% reported that other symptoms have affected their satisfaction with their sex life
  • 49% reported that pain has affected their satisfaction with their sex life

In addition to improving treatments and finding a cure for celiac disease, iCureCeliac® is helping researchers appreciate the realities of living with celiac disease, helping to influencing what they choose to research and why.
