In brief: That depends

Upon whether or not you have a gluten sensitivity/allergy, celiac sprue or not.
If you are someone who suffers with celiac sprue (gluten allergy) then yes, you need to avoid products containing gluten. If you have an ulcer due to Helicobacter pylori infection then you will need to heal up with treatment and time. Assuming you have had an endoscopy. Be sure to discuss with your gastroenterologist.

In brief: Celiac?

It only has any bearing if you actually have celiac disease.
Even then no one really knows.
