POF ????????????: For those with true gluten sensitivity (celiac disease) & those with lactose intolerance (1/4 adults) diets free of either are helpful. For the gluten issue, sensitivity should be confirmed by testing, since a variety of dangerous conditions can accompany celiac disease & not be found until too late if avoidance is done as a fad diet. What you mean by POF is not clear.
