Doc Osborn who has youtube videos about living gluten-free free has suggested that corn may not be ok for all who are gluten sensitive.

Isn't this the chiropractor, who wants to be the new gluten free guru? B)

Dani, every time I scroll down and see your picture I think, "What a very pretty woman!" I'm sure everyone here will agree with me. Feeling pretty good, but my thinning hair is making it harder and harder to look good every day. (Time to start looking at wigs I guess. :huh: )

She IS a pretty woman. :)

Yeah, I have to agree. I am still battling the hair thing and the "I look so old thing"....

then again, someone said recently, OMG! you look 10 years younger...but if I looked 10 years older when I was sick...hey! that just puts me right back where I was before I got sick... hey!!!! :(:lol:

but yes, we are off topic...back to oats!!!

I have been gluten free since 2009 and soy free since 2010 . I just recently reintroduced gluten free oats. I reacted so strongly it took me two weeks to even begin to function again.

I am a celiac that can not eat oats. I also do not tolerate most grains.

I can rotate corn in my diet occasionally but not on a daily basis . The only grain I eat on a regular basis is rice.

So from what I see here, oats might give a digestive issue, but no damage? So maybe, seeing I don't get much by way of digestive issues, I might be able to eat them? It's been almost a year gluten-free now. I think I may just try oats, and if they work, I can get oat flour?

Now, something a bit off topic:

Dani, every time I scroll down and see your picture I think, "What a very pretty woman!" I'm sure everyone here will agree with me. Your old picture was nice, but this new one is even better. I just wanted to let you know. We all need a lift from time to time, and I hope this puts a smile on your face. You may not FEEL good, but you LOOK good. I'm just the opposite today. Feeling pretty good, but my thinning hair is making it harder and harder to look good every day. (Time to start looking at wigs I guess. :huh: )

That's a new one to me...gluten free oats (like Bob's Red Mill) can give some Celiacs "digestive issues," but that is not to be confused with being "glutened" and introducing something damaging to your intestinal tract? How in the world do you tell the difference? Unless you can look inside your intestines, I don't think you can.

I have had Bob's Red Mill oats and have felt fine, even within 6 months of going gluten free. How do I know I'm not causing damage down there with this food (but to be honest I don't eat it a lot)?

I don't love oats - but to be honest, I despise rice porridge and most bread and all that stuff= so I am finding breakfast really hard - especially to find something filling. Arrghh.

Try teff porridge- I adore it. I get the whole grain teff from BRM, I only loosely follow the directions though. It's filling, more nutritious than oatmeal, and tasty!

Beebs, here is some interesting research on oats.

Some people react to Avenin in oats.

"There may exist a sub-set of celiacs who also have avenin-reactive mucosal T-cells, avenin being the oat counterpart to wheat's gliadin". You can read more here:

I've only read the first article so far, but this is enough for me to stay away from oats. I've always been a subscriber to the 'better safe than sorry' school of thought. I also have never tried oats, they were not considered safe when I started the gluten free diet, and I never bought the whole 'we think it's safe now' thing. I need to have it proven to me, I'm so demanding! :P

When I posted a topic awhile ago saying that I accidentally ate oats and it gave me GI symptoms, people replied and said that if oats do bother me, they will damage md like gluten. Now I'm confused? Can anyone clarify?

    • If eating carbs before bed this could be the issues, your system slows at night while you sleep, carb are processed more slowly going through your gut while your lying down. There is a chance your gut bacteria could be getting a bit more active and processing them, fermenting, or just breaking them down producing gas, enzymes, etc. Not moving so much in your sleep to keep stuff a bit more mobile could lead to irritation, gas bubbles, etc. NOTE this is all just guessing.  You could be snacking on something that contains gluten or is CCed. Or it could be something else, My suggestion is try fasting and sleeping or just having a bit of plain protein or a glass of almond milk before bed.  I personally take a protein powder before bed. Wish you luck.
    • Hi FBMB, Please join the club of people who didn't recover in 5 minutes.  We have a lot of members and they all pay dues!  Your dues are an extended course in patience.  Dues are paid daily for an indeterminate time. There was a study a while back of children on the gluten-free diet.  A good precentage of them had not totally healed after 18 months on the gluten-free diet.  Some had though.  Maybe some smart person will post a link to that study. I suggest you change your snacking habits.  Try something different to snack on.  I know I had trouble with popcorn early in the gluten-free diet.  It is hard to digest.  Whole corn is hard to digest for most people.  That's why they make hominy.  You may be able to eat popcorn later on.  Also consider what  you are eating at all times.  Your symptoms can be delayed by hours perhaps. Fairly often we compare the recovery process to a rollercoaster ride.  There can be ups and downs in an apparently illogical manner.   The good news is you really are sick, so you are not a hypchondriac anymore! Now lets see, you are eating cereal, which is a refined carb generally, and hard for our messed up guts and flora to handle.  What other processed foods are you eating?  If you put all the processed foods you are eating in a pile on the kitchen counter, is it bigger than the pile of whole foods you are eating? Recovery from celiac disease is all about diet, gut flora, and patience.   Maybe a few vitamins thrown in here and there.   The tricky things are additional food intolerances that might crop up.  They can be confusing and cause many symptoms themselves.  The way to find them is with an elimination diet.  Put on your thinking cap and start investigating your diet.  Remember processed foods are your enemy.
    • Hi guys! I messaged cyclinglady yesterday but thought of reaching out to all of you for some support. I'm almost 5 months into this thing. My stomach is better. I rarely feel bloated. I rarely have any stomach pain at all. It wasn't terrible before, but I definitely notice a difference now. I'm about 15 lbs lighter. I don't look pregnant when I go to bed. That said, I'm not 100% and I notice that I have good days and iffy days. For the past week or so I have noticed that my belly is kinda off in the mornings. Loose stool mostly. It's formed, but not ideal. But if I go in the afternoon it's usually totally fine. First I was panicked about refractory, but cyclinglady talked me off that cliff. My TTG-iga went from >100 to 12 in 2 months. But I was worried that somehow my body quit responding to my diet. But I think that's highly unlikely and that I'm being a little dramatic. I'm trying to figure out why my digestion seems wonky overnight. I snack at night. Gluten free but I do snack. Sometimes I'll have a bowl of cereal. Usually I have popcorn. And I'm wondering if the popcorn is doing it. Seems like a high fiber dinner or snack makes me funny. I don't know. Nothing seems consistent because it's on and off. is this normal? I expect to feel 100%. I feel 100% in the afternoon. But my overnight digestion isn't. Why? Am I still healing? Does it take a while? I went gluten free on November 8. Am I being too impatient? I'll have my TTG iga checked again in July and I'm not going sooner. I'm a hypochondriac (for real) and I don't need to go down that spiral again. Been there too many times. i would think if it were gluten or my celiac I would feel "off" all day, or i would experience loose stools at other times than just in the morning. And I don't. So maybe it's something I'm doing at night. I just can't figure out what because it's not consistent. And sometimes when I eat popcorn, for example, I'm ok. Then when I don't, I'm not. So strange.  Regardless, I'm frustrated.
