Actually, some find their CD gets a lot less intense once they stop eating gluten... I am gluten sensitive ("non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity"), but I also have one of the genes that predisposes to the development of Celiac, so decided to try a gluten-free diet for awhile. Turns out the gluten gives me terrible cramps & migraines during my monthly cycle, and after starting a gluten-free diet, I also get a heavy feeling in my stomach and immedate diarrhea when I eat anything with gluten in it (even a small communion wafer!). Whether or not I have CD is still up in the air, but I do know how gluten affects me and I choose not to consume it (at least, not knowingly) now because of how the gluten makes me feel.
