Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Do people with celiac disease have to worry about airborne gluten?

Worry just a little

Lungs
Gluten, a protein present in wheat, barley, or rye, could be airborne in a bakery or grain-processing factory. It is possible, but unlikely, that a person very sensitive to gluten could swallow enough airborne gluten (by way of nasal mucus, throat mucus, or lung mucus) to get celiac disease symptoms. Just the aroma of bread baking should not cause symptoms, though.

I have celiac disease, and 20 years old. how do I gain weight. Right now I am about 110lb?

Nutritionist

Weight
visit with a nutritionist to make sure your celiac disease is under good control. there are plenty of healthy and bulking yet safe foods you can eat. If you are still not gaining weight, you need to see your GI doc for more testing to assure that he disease is being controlled by diet alone.

What to do if I have hoshimoto's hypothyroidism. should I be worried about celiac disease?

Yes

Hypothyroidism
1 in 3 patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis have sensitivity to gluten. I generally suggest that all patients with autoimmune disease avoid gluten in the diet as it may be a trigger to leaky gut and autoimmune disease, like Hashimoto's.

I am glad you have had a medical evaluation. Please be sure you are drinking plenty of fluids to flush out your system. Also please be sure you have had your thyroid hormones tested. If you continue your symptoms, please be seen by your physician to have a complete evaluation.
