Celiac Disease and Gastric Bypass
I am not aware of any problems with patient's who have celiac disease having a gastric bypass as long as they continue to avoid gluten after surgery. After weight loss surgery we encourage our patients to limit their carbohydrates anyway so this may make it a little easier to avoid gluten!
