Welcome. You are asking a lot of questions. Many have current discussions. Read around on the forum and see what others are going through. Read the Newbie thread for some general info.

Yes, that is not unusual to deal with other intolerances. You will need to try to get a handle of what foods you can handle well. Over time your body should heal up and you may be able to eat some of the formerly troublesome foods. You might use allergy tests, elimination diet, or food diary to help find them.
Dairy subs: Almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk.
Coffee subs: Hot teas, perhaps.
Go ahead and post your story(as a new thread) if you would, and let people greet you more formerly.
Get well ***

Yes, it is normal to have other intolerances (though not everyone has them). Some of them might go away after you have healed. That is why the experienced folks here
recommend doing a "whole food" diet for a while, before trying to replace your favorite gluten-y foods with gluten free versions.
Soy, corn, dairy are all common contributors to distress. Some people are intolerant of xanthan gum, which is used in a LOT of
products as a thickener/stabilizer; it is found in ice creams, salad dressings, baked goods, and more.
Best to stick with the simple; fresh meats/fish, fresh fruits and vegetables, basic flavorings...olive oil and butter go a long way, as do fresh herbs.
You might find a digestive enzyme helpful.
I've seen some of your threads and several have recommended an informational thread for you...if you haven't gone to read it yet, IrishHeart's Newbie 101 thread
is the greatest information source all in one place on this site. She has amassed a wealth of information, she has a LOT of experience with autoimmune diseases. She also happens to be one of the really great people around here!

2011 - Diverticulitis again
2011 - HLA-DQ2.2
2012 - TtG IgG positive... I am now, finally, Gluten Free - 5/16/2012
