In brief: Celiac disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder and associated with other autoimmune disorders.
Most commonly checked routinely is the thyroid blood test looking for autoimmune thyroiditis (underactive thyroid gland). In general there is not much routine screening for other autoimmune diseases like lupus, hepatitis, anemia, etc. Unless there are specific symptoms or abnormal routine blood tests.

In brief: None

Celiac disease is not an autoimmune disorder. It is more a sensitivuty to gluten, perhaps a toxic or allergic reaction.
I do not think you need to worry about autoimmune disorders related to celiac disease.
