In brief: No!!!!!

Many people live with celiac disease and are highly functioning professionals.
Strict adherence to a gluten-free diet is crucial. That also means reading labels very carefully. You should shop at the gluten-free section, available in most groceries, be under competent medical supervision. Also see www.celiac.nih.gov/materials.aspx; www.celiac.org/

In brief: No

No. There is no correlation with celiac disease and the inability to study anything.
While studying medicine you may learn more about the disease process, too. good luck!
