Can losec eliminate celiac disease?

No

Gluten-free_diet
Losec AKA omeprazole or Prilosec is a proton pump inhibitor that decreases production of stomach acid. It has no effect of celiac disease. If Losec is helping you then you either don't have celiac disease or you have both celiac disease and a hyperacid state causing peptic ulcer, duodenal ulcer, or esophagitis.
