I really just look on the Internet and talk to people, like on this forum but it is pretty quiet here. If she has access to a library, that could be useful.
IMO I think it is really worth looking into going gluten free if you have endo and being checked for celiac disease. Some people have full blown celiac but in many others there is a reaction that can lead to inflammation.
Many doctors prescribe Lupron or other strong meds to give your body a break from bleeding. In my case my doctor recommended a period on bcps. There are many different approaches. I recommend for your friend to do research and then discuss a plan with her doctor.
