Dear Pumla
I am so sorry to hear about your problems. Because you have such a multifaceted set of conditions, I can't just prescribe a simple diet over the Internet. You need to consult a clinical dietitian. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will take your low immunity, overweight and medications into account when working out a gluten-free diet for you. In the meanwhile click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Food-related diseases' and read the articles on wheat allergy.
Hope you get help ASAP.
Best regards
