In the UK, provided that your gluten-intolerance falls within the much narrower category defined as 'coeliac' you can get certain foods on prescription.
You should join the coeliac UK society and they will provide you with details.

If you are paying prescription charges you will still find that this food is costing you.

There are much cheaper and healthy gluten-free foods available off-the-shelf in the main supermarkets. I worked out that a prescription would cost me more for my basic foods.
