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?

    • Designed to reduce or eliminate symptoms of gluten contamination in gluten-sensitive individuals, the product known as AN-PEP, marketed in the U.S. as Tolerase G, is a prolyl endoprotease enzyme, derived from Aspergillus niger, that has shown promise in breaking down gluten proteins. The latest news comes in the form of a small study that shows the enzyme to be effective in the stomach itself, where harshly acidic conditions render many enzymes ineffective. View the full article
    • I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer.    I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free.  I do not worry about a can of tomatoes.  Odds are the contents are just tomatoes and have not been exposed to gluten during the manufacturing process.   Be careful about buying from open bins in a store.  Chances for cross contamination are great!  We had a member here who smartly requested access to unopened bags each time she went into a store and bypassed the open bins.  The store was really nice about it.    
    • I think that your villi are intact.  So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease.  But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  Why?  The small intestine is vast.  If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court!  The biopsies may not have captured the damaged areas. Consider asking your doctor for a celiac blood test and continue to eat gluten daily until the blood draw or better yet, until you get the test results.  A negative on the blood test will really help rule out celiac disease. A small price to pay for piece of mind.   i hope you feel better soon!  
    • Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with  celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA  test results are valid.  Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if  the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems.  For example, my result was above range.  This can be attributed to my having more than one autoimmune disorder and at the same time, it validated the IgA celiac test results.  
    • Grass fed is just the natural, traditional way of cattle eating -- eating grass on the range.  People now pay a higher price for this kind of meat.  It is a leaner meat because cattle do a lot of walking around to graze.    Cattle,  in feed lots or a combination, fatten up fast on a grain diet (e.g. Corn, sit, etc.), plus, we seem to be running out of land and cowboys!
