Lots of people do!  You may have been eating gluten-free oats and not realized it.  Some gluten-free crackers & cookies  have oats in them

They aren't something I can have. I did try them using the method my doctor advised, which was eating them 2 to 3 times a day for a week and watching for a reaction. I lasted 3 days then the fourth day knew they weren't for me.  There are a lot of folks who can tolerate them though so don't be afraid to give it a try.

I've had good luck with Trader Joes gluten-free oats.  I've been eating 1/2 cup almost every morning for the past year.  Had a good antibodies test after I'd been eating them for a few months.
