No it is not okay. Has he been stict with the diet before going into the hopsital? Celiac impacts more than just the gut and if he has been less than strict with the diet that may be seriously impacting his health and could have lead to some of the problems that he is being hospitalized for. If he was diagnosed during this hospitalization he needs to know that he has to be strict for the antibody reaction to stop and for him to heal. Perhaps the doctors and nurses can talk to him about this issue. As for yourself, no do not eat gluten, to do so is putting yourself at great risk of developing other issues.

I agree with Raven, even if he is silent celiac he still cannot eat gluten- it is still doing damage. I am sure it is harder for silent celiacs since they feel OK, but Raven is right- that could be part of the reason he is in the hospital. Didn't the doctors tell him not to eat gluten?

How long has he been diagnosed and what is it that he is craving for food? If it's baked goods and sweet things he misses there are so many good Gluten Free products out there these days. I recenlty had the best gluten-free donuts made by Kinninkinnink. After not having had a donut for years they were oh so wonderful! I kept re-reading the package to make sure they really were gluten free and dairy free. If you tell us what he likes to eat we can give suggestions of what gluten free alternatives you could get for him.
