I was diagnosed with celiac disease back a few months. I also have cystic fibrosis.
I've been eating gluten my whole life and the scope showed my intestional tract vili were compleatly flat. No Cancer was found, for celiac disease can causes a form of lymphoma, but how quickly could it take it devolpe (if it does) if not following the gluten free diet? I don't really like following the diet, the food is grose.

Hi SickJames,

You might develop cancer very quickly or you might never develop cancer. It's a matter of statistics and chance, and also your own genetic makeup and how susceptible your family is to developing cancer in general.

Gluten free food doesn't have to be gross at just have to know what brands are good (Udi's bread for example, most other breads are disgusting).

Before you were diagnosed, what did you eat? Did you ever eat eggs and bacon? Salads, steaks, chicken, fish? Potatoes or rice? Corn on the cob? Tomatoes? Corn tortillas?

All of those things are naturally gluten can still eat LOTS of the things you used to eat before. You just have to be careful with processed have to learn how to read labels carefully. I tend to make our bread and biscuits from scratch (visit my blogsite below in my signature line to find the link to my recipe site), or I use wonderful mixes such as Pamela's Baking Mix (for pancakes, biscuits, etc.) and Pamela's Amazing Gluten Free Bread Mix. (NOTE TO MODERATORS: I am NOT financially or in any other way connected to Pamela's or Udi's or any other brand of gluten free food)

Here is a link that explains in detail HOW to go gluten free, what to eat, how to clean your kitchen of gluten and make it safe, etc.:

If you don't cook now, I advise you to learn! :) Learning how to make your own food will save you money and increase your safety margin because you'll know exactly what ingredients you used to make each dish, which is not the case in a restaurant!

Good luck!

I have relitives who have suffered from cancers of the bowels. I know of two personal ones which was my great grandmother and his eathir a great uncle or a cousin. Neither the leas, I have alot of celiac disease going through my mothers side of the family and several relitives on my mothers side of the family suffered from various types of cancers.

I'm in my early 20s and I've only been 'somewhat' gluten free for maybe the past 6 months. I can honestly say I know for sure my wheat levels are still very high. My GI tested bowel tissue for the lymphoma and appearently there was nothing, but it's freaking me out with my poor gluten free diet and the family medical history.

I may be complestly gluten free, then eat something with gluten. Would that really make a difference? I need high calorie foods due to CF so a gluten diet is easier for me.
