Barley contains gluten, which is discouraged by many LLMD's. Other "gluten" grains include wheat, rye, and oats.

You can buy gluten free oats. I eat gluten free oatmeal almost every morning and don't have any problems with it.

The reason rolled oats are a problem is because when they roll them they put wheat flour on the drum so they don't stick.

Steal cut oats are also gluten free. They just take longer to cook.


Bobs red mill is a great source for gluten free products.

Found out I had lyme in May of 2009. My husband and kids have tested positive too. I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms are Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, Auto immune disease, and hypo-thyroid.
 
Started treatment with samento in june 2009. Side effects are swelling of my liver, lymph system and kidneys.
 
Anaphylactic reactions to beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and soy.
 
My family and I are enjoying a life without dairy for the last 19 years.  We have also removed sugar, gluten, beef and soy for the last 5 years.

Oats are also cross-contaminated with wheat during storage in the USA. So it is important that the oats a person buys specifically states "gluten free" on the label.

Oats can even be cross-contaminated by gluten in the field because farmers frequently rotate their crops...a crop of wheat one year, a crop of oats the next, in the same field.

This is usually only a problem for people with celiac disease, and Lymies.

The only other issue with oats is that they contain a protein that is very similar to gluten called avenin. Only a small percentage of celiacs are sensitive to avenin. Of course, I'm one of them, so I can't eat gluten-free oats either. And I LOVE oats! sad

Hmmm, I must be one of the odd balls again!!! =)
I only have a sensitivity to gluten when my body is stressed - so not all Lymies have to avoid gluten. It's as always, trial & error.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

A sensitivity to wheat gluten is not an uncommon problem in the general public, and Lymies seems to be at the top of the list for all kinds of sensitivities.
There is a really good site (& magazine) called "Living Without" (I am not affilitated or receive any compensation from them), that has a lot of recipes for those who have wheat, dairy & other sensitivities & allergies.

Another reason LLMD's recommend a gluten-free diet is because gluten promotes inflammation and so does Lyme. By reducing or eliminating gluten (and dairy) proteins in the diet, this helps to cut down on the inflammation and helps with overall healing from the Lyme.

I have had lyme since May 2005. Possibly February 1991. Grains and dairy cause me no problems. Haven't for 74+ years so far.

My sensitivities come more with soaps, detergents, shampoos, cleaning supplies, hair colorings.
I sure would like to use the hair coloring this grey hair is making me look older....LOL!
