You may deduct a portion of your gluten free spending, but it is cumbersome in it's paperwork and realizes minimum relief: http://www.celiac.co...Deduction-Info/
It is not considered a non- functioning disability because of it's "cure" is strictly dietary. Therefore, Celiac Disease is not subject to disability benefits.
The diet does not have to be expensive and the good people here can show you how to work it.

I'm no help with the diability. I do know that you cannot get an increase in Food Stamps because of it, at least in Tx. I already tried that since 3 of my dd's and myself all have Celiac.
Mom of 4 beautiful girls (the 2 youngest are only 10 months apart!)
Diagnosed with Celiac disease on November 8, 2006; gluten-free as of 12-1-06.
DD#2 12 years old; diagnosed on November 28, 2006. gluten-free as of 12-7-06.
DD#3 7 years old; diagnosed through blood work in October 2006. Gluten-free as of mid-November and doing GREAT!!
DD#4 7 years old; had a scope done on 6-22-07 (at 14 months old) and the dr saw stomach ulcers, but all test results were negative. GI dr told us to put her on the gluten free diet anyway. She is gluten free as of 6-22-07.

You may want to contact the owner of Better Batter Flours - she does a great presentation on budgeting and saving money on a gluten-free diet and speaks about it to Celiac Support Groups. I'm sure she'd be happy to share some of her thoughts with you. http://betterbatter.org/contact.html
Good luck and hang in there. Let us know what we can do to help.

Also, as you get into it, you can find less expensive ways to do some things. There are very good gluten-free cookies you can make from scratch. For pizza, I bake a corn tortilla some, put on regular pizza toppings and then heat some more. I actually like it better than gluten-free pizza crust, and it's a heck of a lot cheaper. I also roll meat and toppings into corn tortillas like a wrap. For treats, you'll find that many regular ice creams and candies are gluten-free, so that doesn't cost any more.
