Why don't you try out the 5-ASAs? They are the safest of the IBD meds and many find the rectal meds like Rowasa to be especially effective.
You may be allergic to other triggering foods besides wheat. For me it is shellfish, plums, kale, hummus, and high fructose corn syrup, but everyone is different. A food diary can help you isolate problem food, if that is your problem.
And of course most of us take supplements. Probiotics and soluble fiber such as psyllium are the most popular. Fish oil, boswellia, vitamin D, and curcumin are also helpful for some of us. Antibiotics are what actually knocked out my flare and many are using LDN with success. Check out the threads, this forum is a wealth of information.
