  1. I have been recently diagnosed with celiac disease. We had been searching for cause of my anemia problem that was noticed only because I was refused as a blood donor. All my donating life (several years) I was always borderline of 38% hermaticrit. Well in the last year I fell below that and went to the doctor. Started with 3 iron supplements per day (1200% MDR). Iron improved but a colon endoscopy was ordered (close to 50 years old anyway). That proved normal so they scoped from the other direction and found short and flattened villi. A biopsy confirmed celiac disease. A blood sample was then taken. My question is: Since my symptons have been mild after I have been on a gluten-free diet for 6 months, will my system become even more sensitive to gluten. I consider myself to be pretty healthy; my physical conditioning is better than most people half my age. If in six months I cheat or have glutin by mistake, will my system revolt and act like so many people I've read about on the forum? Or is it possible to have a case of mild celiac disease? Perhaps my atheletic training has masked some of the problems. Even when anemic I was on the elliptical 50 minutes per day maintainingng a heart rate of 150. Were any of you diagnosed in around the bout way? (I don't have the stomach cramps, diahrea only when I eat bread after a missed meal.)
