If I remember right, that cereal has oats. I would have to look it up to be totally sure. You were probably glutened. I totally stay away from oats. There is no way to guarantee that there isn't cross contamination with them. Also there are some celiacs that react to the protein in oats. So, personally, I steer clear. It sounds like you need to also :)

If you're talking about the cereal, it's not gluten-free.

Yup, stay away from that cereal--it does have oats, which are mostly likely contaminated in this country, even if pure oats don't give you a reaction.

I guess this would be an appropriate thread to ask this question????

Being newly diagnosed and not "sick" or symptomatic as a rule because I was only tested because of family history, I thought if you were not "sick" so to say that oats would be okay????? Is it true that if you are originally diagnosed after being sick that you should stay off oats for 6 months and then slowly add them back to see if it bothers you? What do you experts think? Thanks

here is a good thread on the oats debate you can read: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=14052&hl= So you were tested and all your tests were negative and you have no noticeable issues with gluten? (Wasn't sure from your post)... There are two things with oats. 1st, most oats are contaminated in the US--just part of the growing, processing/milling etc...so, most aren't safe for those on a gluten-free diet. I also have a study I can e-mail you, if you like, on 3 major brands and their results from batch testing for gluten. (they each had dectectable levels of gluten) 2nd, there is a small percentage of people who do react to pure oats, but at this point there is no way of testing to see who those people are. and IMO the only way to know if you are truly reacting to oats if you are eating them all the time would be follow up testing, endoscopy, blood work etc. b/c sometimes internal damage can be occurring without an exterior manifestations or symptoms. but if you are someone who does not react to pure oats, you have to refer back to #1. at this point i have not as of yet seen or been convinced of a completely gluten-free, non-contaminated brand of oats. these are my thoughts until more research and testing really comes out on this topic. hope that answers the question or part of it !

I as a rule do not eat a lot of gluten products because I have been following a modified South Beach phase 1 which includes mostly dairy, meats, veggies etc and I chose not to eat breads, pastas and grains to help with weight loss. I have been following this for 2 plus years. I was only tested because 4 first degree relatives were positive.

A few days prior to testing I started to eat bread and pasta again so I would not get negative results. My IgA was 43 with a less than 25 negative. My MD said given my family history and dietary restrictions prior to testing she is sure I have celiacs.

I added gluten to my diet for 2 weeks and found gassy uncomfortable lower abdominal discomfort- not severe- I have gone back to basic gluten free with oats only and have had no symptoms.....yet....it has been about 10 days. Thanks for your info. I will look at it.

Regular commercial oat flour is not safe due to contamination with wheat.

Here's how goofy I am... I thought she meant real honey comb, you know, from a bee hive. I was ready to say "Of course it is gluten free."

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
