My son and I don't have digestive problems, he has/had some sensory-seeking behaviors that are related to our health issues, and for him it took 3 months _and_ a long list of supplements to see a change with gluten free. I felt better in a day and a half.
Even in my son, whose symptoms have always been quite mild, never enough for a diagnosis (my health deteriorating is what started us looking into health matters), I've seen behavioral issues with stomach bugs. I'm sorry you're having such a rough go of what would seem to be an otherwise straightforward food elimination trial.
With the issue of Type 1, it seems really good to look at gluten. Instead of a blood test, you could do stool testing through Enterolab, they can look for antibodies in the stool, I think up to 2 years? or is it 1 year? after gluten removal. They've got a separate gene test for celiac genes as well, it's not an official diagnosis, but it seems like useful information.
