Confused About Reaction To Oats
Posted 24 October 2012 - 09:52 AM
I've been very strict with my diet for the last two months and cut out oats completely (though I ate A LOT of gluten-free oats for the first two months of my diagnosis.) Since my test results looked so spectacular, I thought it would be ok to reintroduce oats a little ahead of schedule. So, I are a large bowl of gluten-free oatmeal for breakfast yesterday at 9:30am.
Result: I have had no pain in my lower left abdominal, which is my #1 sign for having been glutened. I did notice that I became gassy around 6pm last night, and at 10am today I had a very loose bm. This is what worries me, since there was no other chance of cross contamination in my day, and my stools have been very consistent for the last two months.
I don't have health insurance right now, so I am bouncing ideas off of you intelligent folks. Thanks for bearing with me!

Either way, getting diarrhea is still tough on an already challenged intestine so it's probably worth changing brands or eliminating them altogether. Only you can know for sure what is best, but it sounds like you eliminated and then reintroduced, only to find you have a slight reaction to it.

Next day, after the night I went thru the mud and the water, climbed that truck side and pried the door open expecting to see bodies, and instead get this pair of loony- tune drunks mad at me when I tell them we're calling the rescue for them , I can't even hardly make it out of bed. I am so sick. Off that gluten free menu. This was back when I was starting to experiment with eating out, and I have to have a big adventure.
As I have aged and progressed into this gluten free thing, I become more sensitive, so last year I had to give up things processed in a facility with gluten free oats, because I was having reactions to that, too. Who would have thunk it with the part Irish in me, which has at least been able to keep dairy.

I hadn't really thought about oat use not being disclosed on the label. Maybe that could explain some of my reactions to processed foods. I react to oats too. Do you remember what brand that was?
supposedly "gluten free" chips that used oat fiber, but did not disclose on the label.

So I chalked it up to cross contamination. Live and learn. It would be great if they've gotten rid of it.

Fibromyalgia diagnosis in 2010.
Mild hyperthyroidism diagnosis 2011.
Disc Degeneration diagnosis 2012.
Life long battle with hypoglycemia.
Gluten Free since 2010. On Paleo-type diet since May 2011.
Suffered years of brain fog, back spasms, nausea, and recurring connective tissue pain and injuries. After years of misdiagnosis, I did my own elimination diet and discovered a severe reaction to wheat gluten and casein. After going on a grain free, nightshade free, Paleo-ish diet, my symptoms are nearly gone, and I FINALLY KICKED THE BRAIN FOG!
Cheers to health! <3

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
