No, not necessarily but you may be tested for this ...

Celiac disease also known as gluten sensitive enteropathy may be tested via blood tests for specific antibodies ...

You may see your doctor and ask about the testing ..

If you have no digestive type problems then this would be unlikely for you

It is an autoimmune type disease ..

See this reference for details >>>
