A 21-year-old member asked:

I have celiac disease, can a rotavirus infection cause complications?

No: Not if you are on a strict gluten free diet. The virus will do its own usual trouble in an otherwise healthy bowel.
Dr. Jack Mutnick
Allergy and Immunology 17 years experience
Usually not: Rotavirus is a short-lived viral infection. It can wreak havoc on the GI tract and cause some dehydration but there is no correlation between the two diseases.
