I was diagnosed with Celiac as a child and subsequently deemed "cured". Is this possible? I lived on a very restricted diet for years but the restrictions were later lifted.

There is no cure for Celiac. There can be periods of time where you may be asymptomatic. This seems to be (but not restricted to) the teen years and was therefore thought that you could "outgrow" Celiac like some kids outgrow allergies. However, now we know different. Celiac is a life long diagnosis.

By the way, welcome to the forum . . . tis a wonderful and helpful community.

No you were not 'cured' what happened is you healed. Sometimes after children are gluten free for a few years they 'seem' to be able to eat gluten again and doctors thought they were cured. Now we know that is not the case although in some it can take some time for celiac damage to be obvious again. In some instances also the antibodies will choose to first attack another organ rather than the gut first, which can make things even more confusing for doctors.
