Dan--Personally, I would stay away from the oats. I dont trust oats, even though some doctors say we can have them. Oats made me ill before I knew anything about celiacs. I dont believe we can have them. Have you checked your cereal--does it contain barley malt? Barley doesnt normally cause a reaction in me, but it is still a gluten we MUST stay away from. I helped my daughter make some "Puppy Chow" a Christmas treat she loves and the cereal has barley in it. I did not eat any of it, but somehow I think I got some in me, I had a nasty tummyache yesterday afternoon--I havent had one in a long time. Just be careful of the cereals..ok. Deb

Hi Dan--Yea, I would not eat that cereal any more. Period. Like Deb, oats made me sick years before I had a DX. Not terribly, but enough to not want to eat them. You have not been DX for that long, and you have to be careful to eat simply so that your intestines have a chance to heal. For breakfast, you might choose fruit, rice bread toast, cream of rice, eggs, that kind of thing. Even a tiny amount of a gluten containing food will keep you from healing and actually cause further damage. If you need more ideas for foods, you can search here or you can PM me. As soon as you get all the gluten out, you will begin to heal--and it will get easier the longer you do it.

Dan-definitely nix the cereal. Know that is does take a while to recover and for your intestines to heal though, and you have only been on the diet for a short time. So, even if you are 100% gluten-free, you may still have 'odd' stools. PS--Take a deep breath and don't be anxious. Most people make mistakes initially, as the diet is pretty complicated...so be patient with yourself and ask for help and seek our resources when you need them--like books, a local support group etc.

Trust me we talk about everything on here so it's quite alright lol. Alot of oats are contaminated but besides that some even react to pure oats. I for one stay away from them. I recently had a problem with something labeled gluten free so ate it and then looked over it and it had oats...well I got sick. So stay away from that...it sounds like you were doing pretty well until that hit you.

If you need help with anything feel free to email me :)
