Currently the research says celiac gluten intolerance is related specifically to certain grains including wheat, rye, barley, spelt (and a few others), but not to other grains such as corn, rice, or millet. As far as I know, there is no scientific research pinpointing other grains as culprit in celiac disease gluten intolerance.
Interested to hear how others are feeling about eliminating ALL grains from diet to truly heal and stay healthy as a Celiac - I'm 9 months into diagnosis and am beginning to run across lots of information pointing in this direction. Began reading this in articles when I was researching the SCD diet (which isn't right for me, I don't have the classic GI symptoms), and then the resulting run down the Paleo/Primal path (which I am now doing).....began to run across articles and sites that are touting ALL grains being potential culprit, and that to just eliminate wheat isn't going to always be effective. (forget source, sorry, but one article talked about only 8% of adult celiacs showing healing to gut tissues after 2 yrs gluten free, even though daily symptoms were improved).
My head is sort of swimming from all this (especially after finding videos from Dr Peter Osborne), and I'm wondering what other Celiacs might think about all this. I'm sure many of you here have been researching FAR longer than I, so you might have a different take on this level of info?
Thanks for weighing in....
However, I think recovery and tolerance of non-gluten grains likely depends on a person's overall state of health. There can be a lot more than just the issue of gluten intolerance when someone has celiac disease - there can be concomitant issues of microbial dysbiosis or other inflammatory or allergic conditions causing additional digestive problems that may interfere with healing. Any chronic inflammation will interfere with healing. Period. It is a very complex issue involving food biochemistry, immunology and microbiology and will certainly not be clarified until much more research is done, especially in the field of bioinformatics.
