In brief: Compliance is key

The first step is to make sure you are truly following a gluten-free diet.
Gluten can hide in substances like beer and some pills. Consult with a dietician to make sure. If this is still a problem, consult with a gastroenterologist to perform other tests to make sure there's no other inflammatory process going on or other causes. There's a medicine called "budesonide" they may try.

In brief: Celiac Disease

The best qualified is a gastroenterologist.
If you have seen one, or two, and are not satisfied, the next step is to locate a nationally known institution to find someone who specializes in celiac disease for alternative treatment options.
