Short answer is yes: http://answers.hrsa....amp;p_topview=1
Can a person with Celiac's be an organ donor do you think? No, I'm not planning on kicking the bucket.
(quite a URL that is). Now, whether we'll have any organs fit to donate when we're done with them is another question.
About '02, lactose intolerance hit. Quit gluten in late '07. Immediately had better energy, less anxiety.
By '09, no lactose intolerance, but I gave up dairy 7/18/09 anyway (and in August soy). Restarted dairy, Nov' '10; stopped for good, December.
9/12/09 Wound up in the emergency room with what turned out to be hypothyroid symptoms. Resolved quickly when I got my iodine levels up. If you're on a whole foods diet, make sure you get enough iodine. Believe me!

I don't think very much study has been done on certain aspects of this (like the marrow question). I read on a post here some time ago that because the marrow makes certain kinds of cells, the disease might transfer. That's why I wrote to them.
The red cross will take our blood (if we are feeling well enough). Note, though, that they do not screen blood for gliadin (from an untreated celiac, say.)

I was just approved to donate a kidney to my mother who has poly-cystic kidney disease. She has been on Dialysis for 3 1/2 years now. The surgery was scheduled for September 8. Due to unforseen circumstances, we postponed the surgery for a few months....
SO, yes you can be an organ donor, even with Celiac Disease.....
