In brief: Why not?

It might be helpful to discuss this with a doctor for a variety of reasons.
They might be able to confirm that you indeed have celiac disease. A doctor can reinforce an appropriate diet with you. We can also help to explain the complications of celiac disease which range from rashes (dermatitis herpetaformis, eg) to anemia.

In brief: Hard to say

You have not provided any data to review in order to comment.
If you have CD & either have marginal control or are not being followed for its long term health consequences it would be wise. Dietary deficiencies, other autoimmune disorders and occasional cancer are seen in these patients.
