Complex issue: Sometimes gluten sensitive people also have food sensitivities to other proteins.Cow milk,egg,,corn,chocolate are a few that bother one patient I follow. There are also food additives, especially red #40, that can cause digestive issues. Your doc may be able to check you for other food sensitivities. You may also want to visit a clinical dietitian to get an idea how to work with this.
