Is it possible to have celiac disease when the only symptom is weight gain?

Question by megan t: Is it possible to have celiac disease when the only symptom is weight gain?
I’ve been gaining weight rather inexplicably lately despite a clean diet and daily excercise and I’ve been beginning to suspect that it’s due to some sort of gluten intolerance/sensitivity. The thing is that I’m having no other issues or symptoms, so I was wondering if this type of thing could manifest in weight gain alone.

Unlikely, the only so-called weight gain with gluten intolerance is bloating/
“Symptoms of gluten sensitivity may include bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain, or diarrhea; or it may present with a variety of extraintestinal symptoms including headaches and migraines, lethargy and tiredness, attention-deficit disorder and hyperactivity, muscular disturbances as well as bone and joint pain.”

Try eating a few less calories, cutting out all added salt and eating more fibre.
