Discomfort After Eating Oats - Is It A Problem With Avenin Or The Fibre?

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am living in the UK and we are about to celebrate "St Andrew's Day" the Scottish way with a gluten free haggis.  Having at first not been able to go near an oat since diagnosis I have noticed in recent months the odd oat biscuit seems to be OK although this week I am noticing I have discomfort in my stomach, and a sort of general soreness in my abdomen, having eaten a dozen!  Reminds me of the good old days pre-diagnosis.

 

Going back to St Andrews Day, oats are a key ingredient in haggis and my Scottish friend has managed to source a gluten-free variety, which I am hoping to eat.   I can live with this discomfort but what I am wondering is how do I know if I am one of the small number of celiacs who have a problem with avenin?  Is the only way of finding out a blood test? Or is it, what my nutritionalist seems to think, that I have a problem with this particular type of fibre.  I do encounter a similar sort of pain after eating lentil soup so maybe?

 

Many thanks

Hi Cristiana,

I don't have any answers...not very helpful of me I know. But I wanted to share that since my diagnosis I have tried oats on 3 separate occasions with bad results each time. I miss oatmeal...especially on cold mornings.

I know... me too.  And flapjack - if you have that in the States?   It is difficult to know whether we have this problem with avenin or whether our stomachs are still sore.
