Hi, I am new to the forum (actually this is the first forum I have ever used)

I am wondering if any have tried the "Only Oats" quick flakes. It states that it is wheat free - I saw on line that it said it was safe for Celiacs. I am so leary of trying this item.........help!

Thanks all.

I am new to this as well. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago and miss my oatmeal, so hopefully someone can answer it. My naturopath did mention that cooked Quinoea tastes very similar.

Good luck :)

Sometimes wheat free does not mean gluten free. You might want to see there is no barley or rye or malt in it. I am actually not familiar with this product but that should help you out.

I have a box of that stuff, but haven't tried it yet.

It is really just oats, there's no other ingredient. The reason they call it "Only Oats" is because it's produced in a dedicated field (not crop rotated with wheat, barley, or rye), and processed on dedicated lines. Hence, if you are one of the 90% or of celiacs who do not react to avenin, the oat protein, you'll should be fine.

Is it really 90% that don't react? Just wondering if you've seen a study that shows that number.

I got that out of my own meta study - around 10% of patients either having actual findings or dropping out of the study due to symptoms (about which I made my own conclusions), but have seen it quoted by real ceilac researchers. A lot of studies are showing no damage, or only small changes or symptoms, but generally no statistically significant change in serology or biopsy. I can't find the studies that I'd read before, though. If I come across them again, I'll post them.

I've been eating oats since the beginning of gluten-free oats several years ago. Here is what I was told. Do not eat oats for at least a year after going gluten-free. Give your body a chance to heal itself.If you are super sensitive do NOT eat oats....

The next advice was to take it very slowly when starting to add oats to your gluten-free diet. 1/2 cup per serving maybe a couple times a week at first. After over two years I still only eat 1/2 cup dry oats cooked in 1 cup water until liquid is asborbed sveral times a week. This will most likely make a change in your bowel movements because of the added roughage from the oats.So GO SLOWLY.

I believe there are four gluten-free oat companies now... Only oats, gluten free oats ,Powell Wy,

Cream Hill Estates, & Bob's Red MIll gluten-free oats.

I react to some of Bob's products so I don't eat those ones.

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
