Veg*n people that also have celiacs?

I have been having syptoms that mimic celiacs disease for months, including weightloss, and looking deathly pale. They diagnosed me with IBS, but I honesty do not think that's what it is. It seems to have gotten worse on the vegan diet and I am wondering if it could be because I am eating so much bread and cereal. So I want to try eliminating gluten for a few days, and just see what happens. I figure it couldn't hurt.. So I need some tips on what to avoid. What sorts of foods on the vegan menu also have gluten in them? ANY and ALL info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Answer on Veg*n people that also have celiacs?

breads have to say 100% gluten free. u should also check the ingredients. like
Gluten “Red Flags"
People on a gluten-free diet need a sharp eye for labels. Some ingredient red flags are obvious, like wheat, wheat gluten, barley, or rye. But some foods have “stealth” gluten. Two terms to watch for are malt (which is made from barley) and hydrolyzed vegetable protein (it often contains wheat).
You Have Gluten-Free Bread Choices
Many health foods stores and some major supermarkets now carry gluten-free products, including an assortment of breads. These are often made with rice or potato flour instead of wheat. Just check the label to make sure it says “100% gluten-free.”
