Might gluten traces in wheat substitutes pose a risk in patients with celiac disease?

Ever since my daughter’s diagnosis, her pediatrician has recommended that she see a nutritionist and the gastroentologist at least once a year. There are times when you go out to dinner that can pose a risk for you to be glutened by accident or even when a food is labeled gluten free can sometimes have some level of gluten in it. The question is does it do any harm to someone with celiac disease. That’s actually something I worry about sometimes about my daughter, that’s why I have her get blood work and she also has a malabsorption test just done periodically to be on the safe side.  Read about a study I found that was performed in Europe.
