Our expert says:
Potatoes are indeed gluten free, so your girlfriend may not have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, but she could suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), an enzyme deficiency and a wide variety of other conditions that can cause bloating and abdominal pain. The only way to determine what is causing these symptoms is for her to have a medical examination and to ask the dr to pinpoint what is causing her distress. Once we have a diagnosis, we can make changes to her diet if this should prove necessary.
So encourage her to have a medical checkup ASAP
