First - many people just can't digest dairy.  This includes many people who do not have Celiac.  Lactose intolerance is very common.

 

For a person with Celiac, the part of the intestines that is damaged by Celiac is the part that digests the lactose in milk.  That part will eventually grow back.  Because Celiac damage is rarely every inch of your small intestine, you may still have enough healthy to eat dairy.

I read an article in which someone with celiac disease wrote that she didn't know anyone with celiac disease who was doing well if still eaiting dairy. I haven't yet eliminated dairy from my diet? Can it do damage to your gut if you have celiac disease? 

You can eat as much dairy as you want, if your celiac disease has not damaged the cilia in your small intestine.  If that is the case then you can not eat dairy, this is entirely dependent on the individual.  In my case I noticed and diagnosed lactose intolerance first, then two years later I figured out that it was caused by gluten.  If you have any damage then milk digestion is hard or impossible, but again you have to test yourself.
