Wow, ain't celiac disease great! :)  Nice to hear there may be a positive side affect for having celiac disease.  I hope their finding holds up in further research.  Maybe it will lead to improvements in treating diabetes too.  That would be great! :)

I wonder if they've adjusted for diet - since many gluten-free'ers eat a more "whole foods" diet?

And....we tend to know about our health problems and try to fix them - so perhaps earlier indications of metabolic syndrome have been previously addressed?

And finally, as the type of person dx'ed with celiac disease changes (from a person who "looks Celiac" to fatties like me), I wonder if this will change.

All that said, I'll take it...though I seem to have not lucked into this positive attribute if you look at some of my history!
