So I was diagnosed about 5 years ago with celiacs via endoscope biopsy. I immediately went gf. At the time and for a long while I had alot of pain and symptoms whenever I was glutened. All of a sudden all my symptoms went away. It's difficult to stay gf now that Iam asymptomatic. Should I stay gf or should I eat what I want?

No! I repeat......No! I just had anemia when I was diagnosed. Two months later I fractured two vertabrae doing NOTHING (osteoporosis which is a complication from CD). So, even though you may not be experiencing gut problems now (symptoms tend to wax and wane) you will be doing damage and not all of it may be visible. Besides, are you interested in setting off another autoimmune disorder?

Stick to the diet is my advice. It is the only "cure" for celiac disease.

So what I do, (had no symptoms since I was a little kid) is try to avoid it at all costs at home, but then if I'm out then there is little harm in the occasional takeaway or dinner out etc. I know this is against the official advice and that it may do harm in the long run but I am otherwise fully healthy while living like this.
