I use "celiacs" as a plural when I am talking about many people with celiac disease - I think it's common usage though I don't know whether it is strictly correct.
I don't mind it on the board but I find it very irritating when news articles get the word wrong. I sometimes see celiacs or the even more egregious celiac's rather than celiac and that's just sloppy for a professional journalist. I am a confessed grammar cop and was also deeply irritated when politicians started pronouncing nuclear incorrectly.
