If I remember right, that cereal has oats. I would have to look it up to be totally sure. You were probably glutened. I totally stay away from oats. There is no way to guarantee that there isn't cross contamination with them. Also there are some celiacs that react to the protein in oats. So, personally, I steer clear. It sounds like you need to also :)

If you're talking about the cereal, it's not gluten-free.

Yup, stay away from that cereal--it does have oats, which are mostly likely contaminated in this country, even if pure oats don't give you a reaction.

I guess this would be an appropriate thread to ask this question????

Being newly diagnosed and not "sick" or symptomatic as a rule because I was only tested because of family history, I thought if you were not "sick" so to say that oats would be okay????? Is it true that if you are originally diagnosed after being sick that you should stay off oats for 6 months and then slowly add them back to see if it bothers you? What do you experts think? Thanks

here is a good thread on the oats debate you can read: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=14052&hl= So you were tested and all your tests were negative and you have no noticeable issues with gluten? (Wasn't sure from your post)... There are two things with oats. 1st, most oats are contaminated in the US--just part of the growing, processing/milling etc...so, most aren't safe for those on a gluten-free diet. I also have a study I can e-mail you, if you like, on 3 major brands and their results from batch testing for gluten. (they each had dectectable levels of gluten) 2nd, there is a small percentage of people who do react to pure oats, but at this point there is no way of testing to see who those people are. and IMO the only way to know if you are truly reacting to oats if you are eating them all the time would be follow up testing, endoscopy, blood work etc. b/c sometimes internal damage can be occurring without an exterior manifestations or symptoms. but if you are someone who does not react to pure oats, you have to refer back to #1. at this point i have not as of yet seen or been convinced of a completely gluten-free, non-contaminated brand of oats. these are my thoughts until more research and testing really comes out on this topic. hope that answers the question or part of it !

I as a rule do not eat a lot of gluten products because I have been following a modified South Beach phase 1 which includes mostly dairy, meats, veggies etc and I chose not to eat breads, pastas and grains to help with weight loss. I have been following this for 2 plus years. I was only tested because 4 first degree relatives were positive.

A few days prior to testing I started to eat bread and pasta again so I would not get negative results. My IgA was 43 with a less than 25 negative. My MD said given my family history and dietary restrictions prior to testing she is sure I have celiacs.

I added gluten to my diet for 2 weeks and found gassy uncomfortable lower abdominal discomfort- not severe- I have gone back to basic gluten free with oats only and have had no symptoms.....yet....it has been about 10 days. Thanks for your info. I will look at it.

Regular commercial oat flour is not safe due to contamination with wheat.

Here's how goofy I am... I thought she meant real honey comb, you know, from a bee hive. I was ready to say "Of course it is gluten free."

    • Well I was going to attach the copies of the test but it says the file is too large. The stool results are from a "Comprehensive Stool Analysis/Parasitology x3 test by Progressive Medical. Sample 1 had rare RBC, WBC, and Yeast. Sample 2 had Rare yeast. And Sample 3 had Rare RBC and yeast. The yeast amount is in the normal range but it doesn't say anything about RBC health.  I'm not sure if a "rare" amount of RBC  (in my stool, yes) means anything but this holistic provider thought it meant I needed further investigation. She was also the one who diagnosed me with Celiac though. My grandfather did have colon cancer so maybe she is being precautionary.  Other tests from 2017 (don't remember if I was eating gluten that week but I have been on and off for a few months): Blood tests: T-transglutaminase, IgA 4 (range 0-20) IGa Antibody 186 (range 81-463) Antigliadin Abs, IgA 12 (range 0-20) and the REticulin IgA and IgG were negative. Stool tests: Lysozyme 644 (range <600), indicates inflammation Secretory IgA 150 (range 51-204) Saliva test from 2014 (was eating gluten then): sIgA 61.7 range (25.9-136.5) Gliadin IgA (gluten) 18.6 H (normal <6.0) Gliadin Antibody Ration 30.1 H (normal <22.4%) This is pretty confusing... Please let me know what y'all think!
    • Noticing I am having D quite easy nothing bad, painful or gassy, just D or super soft stool in the mornings for the past 4 days. Food Diary suggest several culprits, my BBQ jackfruit seems to be the number one suspect, This is my BBQ cuisine week or two and I can not eat meat so I have a big wad pinch of shredded homemade BBQ Jackfruit. I have done a gluten test on it and that is not the reason but perhaps the seasonings or perhaps hte cider vinegar I put it in fermented it a bit?

      Other thoughts on culprits, I have upped my vitamin C intake to about 1500mg a day spaced out in 2 doses Vitamin C has been linked to D in many cases and is one reason why some people get D when they take a vit C supplement in conjunction with fruit.
      I have also upped my cocoa nib intake this could be a culprit also,
      I have cut back on binding seeds like flax, whole shell pumpkin, and chia which used to be a huge fiber supplement so this could be the cause of more softer stools.Next week I start back on chia seeds in my eggs and we shall see if my stools firm back up. 
      I also doubled up on probiotics as I was taking half the recommended dose prior.
      Eating a bunch more cinnamon, and cinnamon oil, but I do this on rotation so doubt it,
      My new low carb bread, I am eating 2-4 slices of this grain less bread a meal now. This could be it but this bread using coconut flour in it, and egg whites. I doubt this is the case, as coconut flour is known to absorb liquid a lot, and tends to firm up ones stool and in fact cause constipation in people if they do not consume it with a lot of liquid. I came across health concerns with other bakers when I was working on this recipe about it.
      My protein intake went up to double what it used to be 5 weeks ago, doubt this is the issue but this week, I changed it using a custom blend with MUCH less rice protein and more pea and sancha inchi. I noticed the more rice protein I consumed the worse my edema got with legs and feet swelling. Have this well under control now with no swelling,
      I considered it perhaps my extreme coffee intake but I have changed to only 2 cups of caffeinated coffee a day starting mid last month. Down from a whole pot.......so now I drink about a pot of decaf a day. I doubt this is it as it never gave me a issue with the much more likely culprit of full on caffeinated in the same amount.

      While I try to trouble shoot it I am actually slightly enjoying it. Odd as this might sound, I spent most my life with chronic constipation, and the only relieve I used to get came with a glutening and that had EXTREME pain and gas. Followed by a week or so of constipation so bad I had to take laxatives.  This....this is just a release with no pain or gas....odd and creepy but I seem to have much more energy, and I can eat and drink a lot more. >.< I think I might enjoy this ride a bit of regularity even if it is a bit off, it is a huge change from my hard stools and painful movements of years past.  I mean I have gone as far in the past as taking a entire bottle of miralax to try to go and just had gassy normal BM 24 hours later and frankly miralax makes me feel like groggy, tired, and like the blob, I am that guy that had to double the dose of everything for the scope prep and had the doctor think I cheated when I told him the first time I did it right and did not clean me out. I want to find out what is triggering this and add it to my regime for clean out or laxative treatment after a glutening next time when that C hits for a week.
    • Yeah noticing some others, black tea, gives me that film/mucus on top of my stomach while green tea, herbal/hibisicus, and coffee do not. I have recently fell in love with Rythem Kale chips, and roasted kale. Kale raw...I always get sick from. At first it was due to the waxy stuff on the ones I was getting, then I got organic washed. and still got the issue minus the floating waxy stuff in my stomach. Now if I stewed it, nuked it, or made chips out of it no issues. But with the farmer market, me baking for it, and Texas Summer preventing afternoon baking due to heat. I never had time to roast kale this summer. Now with the Rythem Kale it comes prepared in a way that doe not make me sick. Love using it crushed up in my omelettes, or using it crushed as a garnish over my miracle noodles or rice. with a pesto or butter flavored coconut oil. Considered this, I have a friend who has this with bananas and a few other fruits, they do not bother him if he cooks them, raw causes hives and swelling. Again I considered it but I no not have sores form in my mouth like I do with my corn allergy, nor do I get itchy or swelling. Still might be a slight issue I might  give it some more thought. >.> could be the fact I do not have much feeling for heat or pain in my mouth (nerve issues).  But it does sort of apply I need to do some research and see if others have this and might be limited to the vomiting and stomach mucus symptoms also. I might try eating some foods I know I have a allergy to like peaches and mango, just a tiny bit in a extract, and see if I get the same reaction, They normally just cause drainage, and sniffles, even stuff with just the flavoring or extract.
    • Hate to add more to your list but you may also want to look into Oral Allergy Syndrome. Mostly because how you describe almonds. Yes, it is another extensive list of foods for intolerance and allergies.
