In brief: Yes.
Yes if in remission.
It's not a blood-borne disease so the recipient will not be adversely affected. A person with untreated or incompletely treated celiac disease should not donate because it would be detrimental to their health. Once celiac disease is controlled through diet a person should be able to handle the rigors of blood donation.

In brief: Yes.
Yes if in remission.
