  1. Hi, I'm a celiac and have been completely gluten free for two years now. I've been reading a lot of articles that discuss health problems that celiacs are more prone to than non-celiacs. What I did begin to notice is that none of the articles really say whether or not the celiacs that they mention who are prone to these health complications were maintaining a strict gluten free diet. I know that the gluten free diet does make a celiac less prone to future health problems like cancer and a whole bunch of other problems (I've been noticing more and more instances than not where the celiac is at more risk than the non-celiac), but is a celiac who is maintaining a strict gluten free diet still more prone to health problems such as cancer than someone who isn't a celiac? I guess I just want to know whether or not the disease has more complications down the road than just maintaining a gluten free diet for life (and, of course, the symptoms from ingesting gluten).
