I guess you just need to see what works best for you. If you are just starting out, I would stay away from all that stuff for a while, then you can try adding things one at a time and see how you feel.

When I see that something is produced on shared equipment I won't eat it. I'm even nervous about a shared facility, because I have no idea what is shared..or if it's likely to come in contact with the gluten-free stuff?
Today at the grocery, there were some great items that had the warning "manufactered on shared equipment that manufacters wheat". I have been told that is basically a cover-your-tail move in case of accidently exposure. I wonder if you guys go ahead and eat them or not. One was labeled gluten free with a tag on the shelf yet still had that warning! I went ahead and bought it but not sure if I should have. I know it can happen but is it COMMON that people react with just the shared equipment.
That's just me. I would call myself very sensitive though. I seem to react to things that some others can tolerate.

It may be safe for some, but I choose not to try it. That's just me.
I was too sick for too long and trace gluten does me in for weeks.
With so many dedicated facilities, I find I have plenty of options.
