Yes, actually there are LOTS of celiacs who are overweight, even obese! The current estimate is at least 40% of celiacs are either overweight or obese. I myself fall in that category.
I'm shocked at your doctors (including the pediatric GI dept at UCLA) for not being up on the current celiac literature. They should read Dickey 2006
