I wish you well and healed of this and other food and nutrient related issues. Good luck finding them as we all go against the grain to discover personal solutions to the probable causes of pain or slow weight loss.
I have found a few more intolerances post my purity with gluten free skills truly kicked in. I do not function well with baking powder because they –all brands- have corn starch. And this became my second find all things with corn. I have gone on an extreme removal of the yeast required to make yeast breads. Thus this was a third intolerant food item to be removed from my daily diet and from my cause of pain inflammation and loss of sleep due to an unhappy digestive tract and unhappy nerve sequences. I do not make any baked goods for myself.
I have had a long standing tradition of holiday baking. The family loved it when one of their Christmas or birthday or seasonal holiday gifts was a container full of homemade goods. It was awesome when the witnesses would ooh and ahh about the goodies inside hoping for a sample taste for themselves, Cookies fudge cakes pies you name it, I could proudly make it. This was part of my problem social acceptance was also based on peer and family approval this way. Maybe gloves a face mask and goggles will be needed for me to achieve a homemade presents without painful affects in me. They say it does not matter but I still do not wish to disappoint them.
Yeast could be a hidden problem as the hidden friend turns enemy and leaves to gut when MD doctors do not look for it as a cause of health woes. The formal testing for heavy yeast is still poorly understood by most doctors and lay-people. Look into yeast in the body to explore any possible bad side effects from yeast in yourself. There is a long question and answer in the back of the Yeast Connection book and a shorter version on the web site to see if a score is worthy of a reduction of this nutrient.
Yeastconnection.com yeastconnection.com Herbs and nutrients inhibit the growth of Candida albicans. In addition to prescription antifungal medications, these can help support a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria, reigning in yeast growth. Some ingredients to look for: caprylic acid, pau D'Arco, oregano, oil, black walnut, grapefruit seed extract, garlic, beta carotene, biotin.
Bread is not in my diet today but I just adore a good clean organic crunchy rice cake.

The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
Congratulations on finding the root of all those evils, better late than never but thank goodness you discovered that you were celiac, before the other diseases did irreparable damage to your body/organs.
I gave up looking for a good yeast bread, so I don't have any magic for you there. Just wanted to compliment you on your impressive results now that you are gluten free.

Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.
I agree with the Udi's Bread. I have tried a lot of bread recipes and while some are marvolous the first day, they are not so good the second. Udi's bread seems to be very consistant and freezes well if you buy in bulk
I eat organic and steroid/hormone free as much as possible. I too baked a bread never found any receipe that I liked. Now I just buy Udi's mult-grain, it's gluten free in freezer section.
I only eat 1 slice a day at most, either for breakfast if I'm eating an organic egg and want toast. Otherwise if I'm eating a sandwhic I just use 1 slice and use lettuce instead of a second slice. But even as a sandwhich I still toast it.
My little sister told me 1 1/2 years ago that my parents hid the fact that our grandma had celiac disease. I was tested was positive and went through a world wind of new things. First no more meds for thyroid, diabetes, lactose intelorance, cholesterol, and migraines. Weight comes off and is steadily staying off, slowly. My OCD is waning, I am more focused, more projects getting done. One problem, I am a naturalist, I cook and bake our own, and it is hard to find decent tasting bread. But the birds in my neighborhood are happy, and well fed. I am not new to Spark, just more organized now to be stable to it.
