  1. HI, I'm in the same situation. I was diagnosed with some routine blood tests and determined that I have Celiac. That being said, I literally have no GI issues and see no change in what I eat or don't eat. I've asked my doctor (GI) why should I adhere to this diet, etc and he says the long term effects could make you sick, give you an increased chance of cancer, mental illness, etc. I got a physical last year and my doctor said, if you're not having any pain, why change? That being said, I'm really at a cross road as to what to do. WHen I eat now I try to east gluten free but I travel for work and its close to impossible to do this 100% of the time. I'm just at the point where I'm saying "OK, I have Celiac and I don't have any side effects" so do I completely change my life for the chance that I will lower a few percentage points the risk of a disease in the future? ALso, does anyone know if Probiotics are helpful for Celiac or if they'll make your gut "better". Thanks
