Should pregnant women avoid gluten?
New research has linked women’s gluten intake during pregnancy with subsequent type 1 diabetes in their children.
The study of 67,500 women shows that women who consume more than 20 grams of gluten per day are twice as likely to have a child with the condition than women who consume less than 7 grams.
This study shows similar results to previous research on mice.
