We keep gluten free hosts on hand. We also don't do any sort of dunking, so the wine isn't contaminated with gluten. For people with trouble with the wine, one drop of wine is put into a cup of water since grape juice isn't allowed.
I haven't been able to find any stories of someone who was eligible for Communion and wasn't able to not get it due to allergies in our Synod.
