A theorem of Kuyk says that every Abelian extension of a Hilbertian field is Hilbertian. We conjecture that for an Abelian variety A defined over a Hilbertian field K every extension L of K in K(Ator) is Hilbertian. We prove our conjecture when K is a number field. The proof applies a result of Serre about l-torsion of Abelian varieties, information about l-adic analytic groups, and Haran's diamond theorem.
